Vegetarian recipes like this one are a great idea if you are looking to add more veggies into your diet. Eating more vegetables does not have to be an onerous, boring task. Nor does it need to lack flavour. It can actually be surprisingly appetizing, mouth watering, and palate pleasing. Not only will you feel better by eating a more plant-based diet, but your taste buds will be enjoying a whole new adventure on a daily basis. Fruits and veggies are jam packed with nutrients that actually taste as good as they are for you. They are also very hydrating, allowing for better liquid absorption, and can, therefore, complement your daily water intake. The more veggies you eat, the better they will taste and the more you will begin to crave them. They’ll taste good raw or cooked, in juices and smoothies, dried or frozen, and all of the above. Eating more fruits and vegetables goes even farther than your personal health and the health of your family – you are actually helping to heal the planet when you eat less meat while eating more sustainable, local produce.
