Eating healthy can be a challenge especially if you are on a budget. If your family is not on board with you about not eating meat, sometimes you will be forced to cook double meals.

What I usually do is try to cook thing, that I can eat as well as the rest of my family.

Brown rice, whole-grain pasta, beans are a great source of good carbohydrates.

Potatoes are also a great source of protein, they are sodium free, cholesterol free, and fat-free. There are currently seven types for you to choose from ( russet, red, white, yellow,blue/purple, fingerling and petite).

Leaf greens (Kale,Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Mustard Greens, Broccoli, and Red and Green Leaf as well as Romaine Lettuce) might help change the boring salad bowl. They have vitamin as well as being antioxidant.

You can also shop at your  local supermarket or even the Dollar Store when you want something quick and easy to fix for a snack or lunch.

You may also try the Morning Star Farm Products they are excellent (for those who want to make the transition from meat to non-meat).

“Eating right and eating healthy is the right choice in life.”

Thank you,
