New to vegetarianism

Hi everyone! I decided to go meatless a week ago and am glad to have found this forum! I'm hoping to find some recipes that my family likes (husband and 2 toddlers), and hopefully I'll get some questions answered as I continue on this journey!

Hi MisoArtsy,

Your family might enjoy meatless dishes that are similar to their current favorite dishes. Burritos, soup, pasta, and tacos can all be made meatless. It's very likely that your supermarket carries vegetarian burger patties (Boca is a good brand), which can minced and used in these dishes. Burritos and pasta are also good with canned vegetarian chili mixed in - you can find veggie chili located next to the meat chili at your grocery store. You can make a hearty meatless soup by adding boiled lentils to any vegetable soup.

(Below: Lentils are great in soups)


Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

Thanks for the kind welcome, everyone! Each day gets easier and I'm loving all the recipes I'm able to tweak. My husband is really proud of me becoming a vegetarian, and he's even started avoiding meat occasionally! Our friend is staying with us and he's expressed interest in going vegan so it looks like I've started something good! :blush:
