I would suggest trying recipes with lentils and chickpeas. Try different greens and squashes.
There are tons of cooking blogs out there with great vegetarian recipes. We still eat meat 3-4x/week, including fish, but on meat days I will cook two vegetable sides - one frozen and one fresh. You are completely right -- you get so many more nutrients when you have meat (and starches) be a less pronounced part of your diet. emoticon

today we were asked to eat a meatless meal... this coming for someone who eats meat as the primary way of getting protein my my eating patterns.
So, today, I started out with my usual oatmeal breakfast with blueberries, the challenge for lunch was to switch to a simple salad with beans instead of meat for the added protein, for dinner it will be a fritata with asparagus, onions, and mushrooms... After entering this into the food tracker I have reached more of my nutrient goals (minerals and basics like calcium, fiber, and iron that I don't normally get when I eat with meat as a primary around which the rest of the meal is arranged... so food for thought... how can I fit these other healthy choices into my diet and reach the goals I have for all nutrients that aren't so plentiful in meats (and still meet my protein goals).

it's journey, not a one day hike.
