a person who does not eat or does not believe in eatingmeat, fish, fowl, or, in some
cases, any food derived fromanimals, as eggs or cheese, but subsists on vegetables,
fruits, nuts, grain, etc.
Quinoa Tabouli W/Sprouts
This is a fairly simple dish to prepare and is great for those who love to improvise with their dishes. It is one of those dishes that will turn out good regardless of what veggies or spices you put in.
Chard and Cucumber Pasta
This light pasta dish is a great option for vegetarians. Lots of great greens and whole-grain pasta will supply some solid nutrition to your diet.
Lean & Green Raw Smoothie
Consisting of only raw foods--mostly fruits and veggies, this smoothie is great for a short-term detox diet or just a once a day micro-nutrient pick-me-up. Notice the appropriately placed SF Giants glass in the picture--nothing like filling your favorite glass with a healthy smoothie.
Throw the following ingredients in your blender or juicer with water or ice:
There is also the option of adding a scoop of protein powder to the mix, which depending on the type can change it's "raw food" status. Protein like Whey or Casein will no longer give the smoothie this status. However, protein like soy, hemp or pea will keep it raw.
A wonderful alternative to greasy potato or even tortilla chips. Kale Chips are a appetite fulfilling snack that promotes a healthy diet and overall health.
These colorful and amazingly flavorful veggies are packed with antioxidants like vitamin-c and lycopene. There are a number of options of meals to include bell-peppers in. I like to pre-chop them, then add them to my salads or in an egg-white scramble.
Tofu and Chard Scramble (no egg)
This vegetarian dish is actually vegan as well. It is a great substitute for an egg scramble, which some vegetarians and all vegans can't eat. Even if you are a meat-eater, try this once, it could change your life!
Fresh Green Salad
Perhaps my favorite produce, heirloom tomatoes are diverse and distinct. Seemingly, each tomato is unlike any other. They come in many shapes, colors and flavors. For that reason, their nutritional values usually vary, however, generally speaking, they are all very nutritious and full of antioxidants.
