Opting for a plant-based meal even once a week can make a positive impact on our planet.
When it comes to going meat-free, you don’t need to go cold turkey (excuse the pun) in order for your efforts to "count".
Animals Australia has invited Mamamia to take part in something pretty special. As a vegetarian myself, their new campaign really resonates with me, as they're calling anyone to join the evolution – an evolution of kindness, consciousness and choice that has the potential to transform our world.
They're wanting to inspire a new way of thinking and living that shapes a kinder future not only for animals, but people and our environment.
We live in a time where there is an abundance of plant-based food alternatives – and my partner and I share a love for trying them. While he's not vegetarian full-time, he does enjoy many meat-free meals with me, confirming they definitely don’t compromise on taste! Wins all 'round.
As we cook together, we’re always on the lookout for new plant-based recipes to try that aren't complex to follow. Nobody has time for that.
That’s why I’ve pulled together 5 easy meat-free recipes if you're wanting to do more for the planet (that are also nutrient-rich and nourishing).
In my opinion, Mexican food should be on your dinner recipe rotation at least once per week. At the absolute minimum. It’s super quick and easy to whip up, you can jam-pack your meal with flavour AND it’s just so damn delicious.
