National Vegetarian Week is great for encouraging meat-eaters to reduce their consumption of meat just a little… not only for health benefits but also for the environment and our furry friends!
Even one day a week (or indeed a month/year!) helps, here are a few simple tips to get you started:
Try a new veggie recipe every week - if you enjoy cooking why not make at least one of the dishes you prepare meat free. Soon you’ll have a list of some great recipes that you love to cook and eat on your meat free days.
Substitutions - suppose you guessed we’d mention meat alternatives but honestly, places like Not Dogs and products like Quorn, Linda McCartney & VBites are a helpful and tasty transition from meat to meat free… you can go on eating what you’d normally eat but meatless!
Tell friends and family - if you really want to make this commitment, then it’s great to have the support of people around you so tell them your reasons why in a positive way. You can still enjoy delicious food together… you never know, you might inspire a few others.
We’d love to hear your veggie tips so please get in touch on social media! And of course, would love to see you at Not Dogs LinkStreet over National Vegetarian Week!
