Benefits of Eating Meatless

Eating vegetarian dishes one or two times a week is a great way to get an added boost of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. A plant-based diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, legumes and nuts, is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. And people who don’t eat meat — vegetarians — generally eat fewer calories and less fat, weigh less, and have a lower risk of heart disease than non-vegetarians do.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these vegetarian dinners freezer-friendly?

The soups, stews, curries and casseroles are great to freeze and will often last up to 3 months in the freezer; however, I don’t recommend freezing pizza or pasta.
