Plant Based Meal Ideas

June 14, 2018

 Searching for some new ideas to spice up your dinner plans? Check out these 3 dinners I made this week that are MEAT FREE, low in added fat and high in protein and vitamins!

 

 

 Sweet potatoes - chop 1 medium potato into 2 inch cubes and steam in the microwave for 4 minutes.

 

Chop and sautee shallot

 

Add grape tomatoes

 

Fry Grilling Cheese in coconut oil for 2 minutes on each side (I genuinely didn't end up liking the taste of this cheese).

 

Serve with 1/2 avocado.

 

Sqeeze Lemon juice over.

 

 

 

 

Boil 1 cup CousCous in 2 cups water

 

Add Garbanzo Beans, Simmer 10 minutes with Chipotle Powder and Garlic Salt.

 

Slice veggies (zucchini, tomato, parsley)

 

Sprinkle with Feta.

 

Drizzle with lemon juice and Olive Oil.

 

 

Drizzle honey on flatbread.

 

Roast yellow squash with coconut oil at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with Sea Salt. Serve over arugula with lemon juice.

 

Broil Flatbread with tomatoes, mozzarella, pine nuts and basil.

 

 

Healthy eating doesn't have to be the same foods over and over again! Experiment with new grains and carb sources and make sure to try out seasonal veggies.
