Yes! I've been signed up since the current issue arrived on my doorstep.
I do drink a green smoothie for breakfast and lunch, so I'll continue to do that, but I am looking forward to getting myself on track for dinner, plus trying some new recipes to get some more variety in my life!
"It is NOT a vegan plan but many of the recipes are vegan. The vegetarian recipes are easily converted to vegan recipes with a few switches and swaps. "
Well, it is if you live somewhere that you can get vegan cheese, yoghurt, cream cheese, sour cream and meat! Unfortunately, that doesn't apply to a lot of people. I'm just happy that I can get soy milk and tofu.
I got a mailing from Vegetarian Times inviting me to join their challenge.
Go to Vegetarian Times to sign up.
It is NOT a vegan plan but many of the recipes are vegan. The vegetarian recipes are easily converted to vegan recipes with a few switches and swaps. For example, swap to the milk of your preference if the recipe calls for milk but some recipes already suggest hemp milk. As a vegetarian, I'm excited to see a 7 Day Meal Plan that is vegetarian! I'm happy to find new and tempting menu ideas. Hooray! I recently saw a meal plan that said just eat anything that flies or swims, or is green!!!! I am a vegetarian and the VT menu plan is vegetarian and the only swaps I need to make are swaps because I don't like a particular fruit or I prefer a different veggie. No Fish! No chicken! It is Vegetarian Times and the food is all vegetarian. Lots of it is vegan.
Quoting from the VT description of the challenge: Starting January 15, join associate editor Tami Fertig in a 7-day challenge to fine-tune her sense of healthful food portions. The program includes a week-long meal plan, expert tips to control portion sizes, daily inspirational newsletters, a printable shopping list and serving savvy cheat sheet, and a chat where you can ask questions and share your experiences.
