Eating a meat-free diet is really easy. I grew up eating meat almost every night of the week as a kid so I know it might sound like a crazy concept to someone you has meat as the basis of each meal. My husband still eats meat here and there when we go out to a restaurant or if we go to someone’s house and they are serving meat. But in our house, there is rarely meat because we tend to make meals we can both eat. We eat a lot of beans, tofu, and whole grains. The transition can be made and it’s a fantastic one. Try tacos with textured vegetable protein or just rice and black beans! Add some daiya, salsa, and guacamole and you’ll never miss the meat in a burrito. It’s an adjustment, but the benefits for me way outweigh the downsides.
