Going flexitarian, vegetarian, or vegan for weight loss or good health? Know what to eat for plant-based weight loss and how to make delicious yet healthy vegetarian recipes and vegan meals. Get your plant-based food list and protein sources sans meat right here!

 

I just finished up a week-long trip in the south, and I spent part of the time in plant-based food heaven! I enjoyed sweet-and-sour tofu and pineapple slaw at Club Med Sandpiper Bay in Florida, plus fire-roasted carrots and red pepper hummus with black truffles in Tennessee. My vegetarian palate is quite happy right now.

Whether you're simply trying to eat healthier or have weight loss or other health goals in mind, plant-based eating can help. This is especially true when you mix up menu offerings to keep mealtime interesting yet still healthy. Try a vegan dessert recipe for Meatless Monday, or throw a vegetarian pizza in the oven on a busy weeknight.

Meat Alternatives Nutritionists Swear By

 

A No. 1 complaint I hear about eating vegetarian is the lack of protein options. But there are so many delicious and filling vegetarian picks out there! And when it comes to plant-based weight loss, replacing some or all of the meat in your diet with high-protein, plant-based foods can really help you meet your goals.

 

See the surprising ways my dietitian pals and I make meat swaps in this Food Network post and learn about the best protein for vegetarians. Then, make sure you've designed your kitchen for weight loss.

The latest weight-loss supplement fad is a bad idea and (surprise!) doesn't lead to sustained weight loss. I explain why in this WomensHealthMag.com article

Amy's Recipe to Try

 

Whip this up: Homemade Pistachio Milk!

 

Wondering how to make pistachio milkI love how creative you can get in the kitchen with a vegetarian diet! While you can certainly buy ready-to-drink plant-based milk, you can also make your own.

 

So give my pistachio milk a taste! It's one of the few nut milks that's super easy to blend up yourself. Looking for another healthy vegan recipe? Try my pizza with mushrooms or my vegan power bowl with maple-Dijon dressing.
