Your Meatless Monday Swap

Updated: Jun 22, 2021

Looking for a way to cut back on animal protein but unsure where to start? The thought of committing to a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle can be intimidating, but you don't have to marry a particular plant friendly diet to reap the well supported health benefits. Check out my favorite meatless twists on traditional meaty meals.

I love how the sweet potato adds color, texture and a vitamin C punch. No sweet potato handy? No problem. This meal is still balanced in protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber without it. Looking to make it dairy free or vegan? Just ditch the yogurt sauce.

Whether you are a tofu pro or new to the game, this recipe is for you. Tofu is a great meat alternative that is rich in calcium, iron and protein. Tofu can be baked, stir-fried, grilled and even scrambled!

I love a good cheese steak (I am only 20 minutes away from Philly after all), but I could definitely benefit from changing it up every now and then. Sure there are chicken cheese steaks recipes for a leaner option, but I just adore this clever swap using hearty portobello mushrooms.
