Research shows that it makes more and more sense to focus our diets on plant based foods. At Cook for Your LIFE, although we are not a strictly vegan or vegetarian site, our recipes are mostly plant based. Plants bring phytonutrients and antioxidants onto our plates which can lead to healthier outcomes if we manage to eat the recommended 5 servings of fresh fruits and veggies per day. We are all for our readers trying to make at least one day a week meatless. It doesn’t have to be Monday, any day will do just fine. And not just for our planet, although there is no ‘planet B’, but for ourselves too. Get into enjoying treats like the delicious vegan and veggie eats in this menu, or check out these vegan kitchen basics, and you will be taking a step towards conserving both your health and our planet’s resources.
