If you have already decided to eliminate meat products from your diet, then half of your work is already done. Determination and willpower are the most important factors in successfully giving up the meat.

Enough protein in the diet

But the meat contains ingredients that the body needs to stay healthy. One of them is protein, which you will simply have to find a way to replace for the body to continue to function properly. The existence of plant proteins certainly makes it easier and even healthier. This is due to the fact that plants have a much better ratio of nutrients and calories than meat and they also contain vegetable fiber which are not found in meat and are extremely useful for good digestion and for maintaining healthy intestinal microflora. Broccoli and lentils contain large amounts of plant protein and the same goes for oat and oatmeal. In addition, the protein contained in chia seeds tofu or quinoa proves that even the small dietary supplements can make a big difference!

So if your goal is to eliminate meat from the diet try using the aforementioned ingredient as a substitute in your next recipe. The mushrooms are well known alternative to meat in our parts and Asians use tofu instead of meat in numerous recipes so why don’t you start too?
