New goal = to eat more vegetarian food 🌱

One of the things I promised myself last year, was that 2020 was going to be the “year of change”. I believe change is good for all of us on any arena in life and one of the changes I want to incorporate this year, is to eat more plant based. I know I’m not getting my recommended daily dose of greens (5 a day), so this is a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet. Humans are creatures of habit and implementing big changes takes time, it’s therefore important to start small – and I’m starting next week! 🙂

Vegetarian Inspiration via Gabby

One element thats necessary to succeed is planning; I need to plan meals in advance, so I know what to make for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I wrote down some my favorite meals and to my surprise, removing the meat (that was just a small part of the meal), made it easy to make a vegetarian version. I decided to write down 10 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks (to have some options at hand) and in case you need some inspiration, here’s my full menu;

Breakfast
1. Homemade granola with milk, raisins, chia seeds and apples
