Want to try more PLANT BASED meals? πŸ₯¬

Have you ever wondered if a plant based diet could help you?
If I was a betting person, my money is on YES.  
There’s no need to go to extremes and change your diet completely.  Today, I just want to introduce you to some simple tools to go in the right direction.

As a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Personal Trainer, I have strict guidelines for continuing education.  Right now, I’m learning about Plant Based Sports Nutrition.  After the Game Changer documentary, it opened my eyes to this controversial topic and I am excited to dive deeper.  

As I learn more about plant based sports nutrition, I promise to share with you any pearls of wisdom but for now, let’s chat briefly about Vegetarianism.  Through my personal and professional journey, I know in my heart that eating more plant based (and less meat based) has a long list of beneficial side effects.  Just a few of these perks include decreased risk of Cancer, heart disease and Type II Diabetes, improved mental health, sports performance and energy, and weight loss.

Personally, I am a “Semi-vegetarian” (also called “Flexitarian”).  In a nutshell, this means that I try to limit meat.  At this point in my life, I have no desire to be a strict vegetarian and I do not push this on my clients BUT I do like to bring awareness to this topic.  Whatever your reasoning (animal/environmental concerns, health issues, sports performance, or weight concerns), I’ve included some easy steps to go in the right direction as well as my favorite vegetarian family recipes.

3 Steps to Transition to “Semi-Vegetarian”:

  1. Evaluate your current diet.  Make a list and identify any of your current meals and snacks that are already vegetarian. Build on these first.
  2. Add more vegetarian meals by revising some of your favorite recipes (that are meat based).  For example, try adding beans, nuts or seeds in place of meat.
  3. Expand your options by finding new vegetarian recipes (see below).

My 3 Favorite Vegetarian Dinner Recipes:

Thai Veggie Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce

Vegetarian Greek Platter

Glorified Rice and Beans

If you follow me, I hope you enjoy my realistic nutrition style.  There’s no need to dive into any diet or lifestyle extreme.  Instead, let’s evaluate and incorporate key principles that will help YOU and optimize YOUR METABOLISM.  If you are struggling with your journey and need guidance, Stacy and I can help!  Click here to schedule a free consultation with me or Stacy.
