Lunches & Dinners
Whole food plant-based cooking might be a whole new world for you! Here are a few tips to make it easier…
1. Don’t be too hard on yourself or expect it to be simple from day one
Your taste buds will change over time and shopping for food will become easy. But it’s unlikely to happen overnight!
2. Once on a recipe page, click the arrow button for an easy-view of the recipes
You’ll be able to cross off each ingredient as you add it to your dish.
3. Use the print button to print the recipes or shopping lists
You can also delete ingredients you already have at home and create a shopping list suited to you.
4. Shop at local markets and bulk bin stores or give online shopping a go
You won’t be as tempted to buy the foods you are trying to avoid!
5. Aim to minimise oil
All of these recipes are oil free but if you prefer to use some then try to use as little as possible. We usually use water in its place and sometimes you’ll have to add more when frying if the pan gets too dry.
6. Keep reminding yourself why you are eating more whole plants
For your health or the environment or ethics– you’ll have powerful reasons to keep it up!
7. Find recipes you LOVE
If the meals suggested here don’t work for you, search for other whole food plant-based recipes until you find some that you can’t wait to cook!
8. Have fun!
We hope you’ll find some new and delicious foods that you may not have tried before! Try to leave your excuses at the door and get creative… it’s a lot of fun!
