Plant Based recipes
Plant-based eating patterns focus on foods primarily from plants. This includes fruits, nuts, seeds, oils, wholegrains, vegetables, legumes and beans. While the term doesn’t mean you never eat meat or dairy, this page is for those who choose to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Many people wonder whether they can meet their protein requirements from a plant-based lifestyle. This is definitely possible, and the key is understanding how. Meat, dairy, fish, eggs, and soybeans (tofu, tempeh, edamame) all provide each essential amino acid, making them complete proteins. We sometimes need to pair certain foods to get the complete proteins. For example, pairing beans with corn tortillas, lentils with brown rice, or peanut butter on wholegrain toast. Often, it’s required to supplement with protein powders and/or EAAs to meet our daily protein requirements too.
