(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN/VEGAN RECIPES) When I was researching the Olympic athletes and their diets, one food I kept coming across was oats—more specifically oatmeal. I like oatmeal for breakfast, but I always thought I should be eating more protein and less carbs in the morning. So if I'd like something other than my breakfast smoothie, I'd usually cook some eggs with turkey bacon. But as it turns out, the Olympians have a healthier and more compassionate option. — Global Animal
(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN RECIPE/VEGAN RECIPE) Cannellini beans are a perfect vegetarian and vegan staple. I discovered the high protein legumes at a tapas restaurant last week and was completely inspired. I had never tasted cannellini before—to be honest I’m not really a big fan of beans—but these were delicious, so I decided to find out as much as I could about them. I really like the texture of the cannellini beans and the way the flavors from the vegetables and spices complement them. Even though I couldn't quite figure out the restaurant's recipe (just give me some time), I combined all of my favorite ingredients and came up with this one. Personally, I think it's just as good. Why not try it for yourself, or experiment with your own favorite flavors and let us know what you come up with? — Global Animal
(MEATLESS HOLIDAYS/VEGETARIAN-VEGAN RECIPES) Well, I made it through my first turkey-free Thanksgiving and survived. More than survived, it was delicious. I had all of my Thanksgiving favorites—stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes—and didn’t miss the turkey one bit. This got me thinking. With Hanukkah upon us and Christmas only a few weeks away, we have lots of parties and family gatherings coming up. Is it possible to stay healthy and meat-less throughout the holiday season? Thankfully, with so many healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes out there, the answer is YES!
