Kid-Friendly, Plant-Based Recipes by Jenn Sebestyen
Why Meatless Monday? Meatless Monday is a global campaign aimed at helping people reduce their intake of meat and increase their intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Personally, I feel an inspiring way to introduce a plant-based diet into your meal schedule.
We are not all open to a diet change, particularly with kids in the family and this can be more challenging than you can imagine.
However, by the small weekly introduction, of quick, simple, tasty meals, this could help the transition to a healthier diet.
Whether you decide to do this for one day, one week, one month, or forever after is a choice you need to make for yourself. Even one meal per week is a great start if you can’t commit to a whole day.
Having had the opportunity to read the book, it gives you some great tips about how to get started, how to stock your pantry so a healthy meatless meal is always in reach, and even how to get your kids involved in the process.
Going meatless one day a week is a great way to improve your overall health, help the planet, and make weeknight cooking fun for the whole family.
The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook features more than 100 delicious plant-based, child-approved recipes, perfect for busy weeknights or whenever you feel like trying out a meat-free meal.
There are Hearty Soups, Satisfying Salads, Loaded Handhelds (sandwiches, burgers, wraps), Bountiful Bowls, Perfect Pasta, One-Pot Wonders, Comforting Casseroles, Centre Stage Vegetables, Breakfast for Dinner, along with Sauces and Staples. Each meal will satisfy even the pickiest of palates, and most can be made in 30 minutes or less.
