This week is Vegetarian Week and, with over 3 million people opting for a Vegetarian diet, the week is dedicated to the tastiest and most delicious veggie food, in which thousands people will be taking part and sharing their top tips, flavour-packed recipes and more.
At i-motion, we are currently running our #SummerConfidence campaign in which dieting and healthy food plays a huge part in your fitness schedule and there is no denying that having a Vegetarian element, or full on Vegetarian approach, can really help you reach your fitness goals.
We’ve picked a selection of our personal favourite veggie meals that are packed with all the protein you need without eating the meat. For full recipes please see link at bottom of blog. Credit: TheSpruceEats.com
- Almond Protein Pancakes;
Pancakes are perfect to start off your day with, especially if they contain more than 30g of protein. They even make a delicious lunch. Sweeten things up and pour over some yoghurt for that extra bit of flavour.
- Vegan Tofu Scramble with Spinach;
This breakfast dish is similar to a spinach omelette. Add in some tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms and spinach (of course!), along with the tofu. Complete the dish with a drizzle of soy sauce and lemon sauce and you’ll get a fantastic boost for the day ahead.
- Vegetarian Black Bean and Hummus Wrap;
Moving onto lunch with this jam-packed protein wrap, which includes roasted red pepper hummus and black beans, giving you double the protein which is easy to make. Fancy a bit more texture? Other vegetables can be added such as mushrooms and peppers.
- Vegan White Bean Salad;
Heard of the classic ‘three bean salad’? If so, here’s a fabulous alternative that includes garlic, onion, parsley, lemon juice and red wine vinegar along with the main ingredient; white beans. Any white bean will work, but chickpeas make a great substitute.
- Vegan Three-Bean Pasta with Spinach Sauce;
Filled with nutrients and protein, this dinner is more than enough to fill you up. Add kidney beans, chickpeas and simmer with onion, garlic, peppers and tomatoes and mix with cooked pasta and toss in the creamy spinach sauce (made with soy milk).
- Vegetarian Lentil Soup;
Lentils are an excellent source of protein, so it makes sense to include them into your meals. They’re also a good source of iron and dietary fibre. It’s always good to have a lentil soup recipe in mind as a go to low fat option.
