National Vegetarian Week

By FLrla 13 May 2022


What is the purpose of National Vegetarian Week?

National Vegetarian Week, which takes place from May 16 to 22, 2022, is an annual event designed to raise awareness about the benefits of a meat-free diet. People are urged to go meat-free for a week during National Vegetarian Week, with vivid and innovative vegetarian meals being promoted and shared.

What are the advantages of following a vegetarian diet?

A well-balanced vegetarian diet naturally has less saturated fat and more fibre. This can aid in the reduction of cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Vegetarianism is also good for the environment. Meat production has a significant influence on natural systems and consumes a large amount of land, resulting in deforestation.

Here are some recipes, meal ideas, and recommendations for different times of day to help you get started. You'll love these recipes.

Breakfast Recipes/ ideas:

Smoothies: blend rather than juice smoothies and remember to add vegetables as well. Carrots, spinach, kale and cucumber are good in smoothies.

Breakfast Cereal:  It's an excellent choice because it's fortified with extra nutrients, but it's also high in sugar, so I'd just take a little quantity and eat something else in addition.

Beans on Toast are protein-rich and satisfying.

Porridge is the royal breakfast. There's no need to buy quick oats; porridge oats may be made in a skillet or microwave in a few minutes with milk. While it's cooking, I like to add raisins and a pinch of cinnamon. When it's time to serve, I top it with sliced or mashed banana for added sweetness and nutrition.
