Being a vegetarian is tougher than it sounds. Getting your protein and essential vitamins is harder than for those who consume meat and fish. It’s easy to just eat dessert, bread, and junk food all day, but your health will suffer as a consequence. Many vegetarians suffer from the side effect of nutritional deficiencies because of a poorly planned diet. And then what’s the point of even being a vegetarian at all?
If you have trouble coming up with healthy and satisfying meals for your vegetarian lifestyle, check out our beginner’s guide to eating as a vegetarian.
1. Make sure your recipe can be doubled/tripled or create other meals
Buying ingredients for only one meal can end up being expensive. Instead, try to make sure you get a couple of meals out of your ingredients. You can also meal prep and make multiple meals out of that one recipe to get better bang for your buck. Buying in bulk will stop you from running to the store every week.
2. Perfect your grocery list
Going in the store aimlessly with no list is a sure way to make sure that you’ll end up with a bizarre mish-mash of items that you can’t turn into a meal. Making a good grocery list is important, but so is purchasing from the right grocery store. If your store of choice isn’t vegetarian friendly, it might make finding items hard. Still, don’t overlook the produce section of the budget grocery store or items on sale – beat up fruits and veggies need love too.
3. Use a customizable meal plan
There are plenty of recipes online and ideas on sites like Foodgawker. Websites like Slender Kitchen can help you with a customizable meal plan for your needs, and many sites will let you print ingredient lists directly at home. Also, make use of apps which can help you organize your list by aisle. I mean, just look at this creamy caprese quinoa bake, or this mouthwateringly refreshing California sandwich.
