Healthy and Tasty Vegetarian Options

Today, World Vegetarian Day, marks the kickoff of Vegetarian Awareness Month. It’s no secret that eating vegetarian (i.e., not eating meat or other animal products) has proven health benefits, and Wellbeats has many vegan and vegetarian recipes you can enjoy.

Meatless Meals

This unique twist on a burger served between a bun of seared portabella mushrooms and a side of freshly baked fries will solve all your cravings and is a great low-carb option.

Roasted Acorn Squash

This recipe is packed with nutrients and topped with a sweet tahini sauce, pistachios, and pomegranate seeds.

Reboot Juice

“Reboot” juice is an amazing smoothie option if you’re looking to promote a healthy metabolism and boost your immune system with extra antioxidants.

Even if you are not a vegetarian, you may choose to be one for a day. Try the meatless option at a restaurant, shop at a farmer’s market, or share a ready-made veggie tray at a work or family gathering.

There are many delicious entrees, side dishes, and meals that do not contain meat or poultry and are highly satisfying and healthy.
