Meal Plan: Vegetarian Week

As we all know, the number of vegetarian options available is slowly increasing. This means that meat-free meals are becoming more appealing for people to eat. Realistically, the food hasn’t changed for vegetarians, only the stigma around what it means to not eat meat.

There are so many reasons why someone may decide to be vegetarian; protection of animals, dieting, doesn’t like the taste of meat, allergies, to save money and so on.

My personal reason for not being vegetarian is because I enjoy meat, yet I am part of the generation that can increasingly see the benefits of adopting a vegetarian diet. So, I consciously make the decision to have meat free weeks or ensure that 3 to 4 meals a week include no meat. Therefore, with that in mind, I decided to create a vegetarian meal plan for 7 days.
