Three must-knows to make the switch to easy and delicious meat-free meals.

Jessica in the Kitchen for CBCI’ve been blogging about vegetarian recipes on Jessica in the Kitchen for over three years, and it’s definitely my greatest life passion. I’ve read every article, watched every documentary, and dove into every vegetarian cookbook I could find because vegetarian food is fascinating, and there are endlessly exciting choices.

I love hearing from my audience that my recipes are not only helping them to make healthier decisions in their lives, but that they’re so confident in how easy my recipes are to make that they believe they’re ready to switch to full time vegetarianism.

I also get asked the same three questions all the time about how to switch from being a meat eater to becoming a vegetarian. It’s my goal to help you make delicious, nutritious, and filling vegetarian meals as an easy part of your daily life.

How exactly do I make the switch to vegetarian meal planning?

I suggest going slow. Go at whatever pace you’re comfortable with. On your first week of transition, start with cutting meat out of at least one meal per day. Then on week two, cut meat from two meals per day, and have an entirely Meatless Monday, and keep going until you’re at a point where you’ve cut meat out comfortably. Also, replace your favorite meat meals with veggie versions. This will make you less likely to feel  feel deprived. Some of my favorites are my Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers (deemed a game changer by my readers), my Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings, and my Crispy Baked Zucchini Tacos.

If I cut meat out of my diet, where will I get my protein?

Rest assured, plants provide plenty of protein, and definitely enough for your daily meals. Lots of companies also now pack their vegan products with plant-based protein sources such as pea protein. Here are some of my favourite protein sources:

  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Pea Protein Powder
  • Nuts
  • Oats
  • Eggs
  • Peanut butter
  • Chickpeas
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp seeds
  • Protein pastas
  • Tempeh
  • Tofu
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Peas

What’s the best way plan for vegetarian meals?

One of the things that really helped my transitioning process was having a resource of healthy, easy and quick vegetarian recipes always at hand. When you’re hungry, you just can’t think straight, and it’s even harder to make the right decisions. That’s why I really love using Cookbook Create as a meal planner!

When I was not hungry, I added about 20 of my favorite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner to the site. I can rotate through these vegetarian favorites with all the ingredients and instructions. Now I always have a resource on hand that I can reach for immediately.

You can make a list of your favorite family recipes, your blog recipes, or even vegetarian recipes already on Cookbook Create’s website.

I like using Cookbook Create because it serves a double purpose is to use it as a  meal prep guide! I prep all my meals on a Sunday, and when I don’t feel like trying something new, I go back to my easy standbys and prepare them for the week ahead. Having those stalwart recipes already assembled together in one place makes meal prep easier, and transitioning to being a vegetarian is all about making the switch easier for yourself!

All the best!
