As the years go by, more and more of a focus is put on reducing our consumption of meat. Eating fewer animal products has a vast variety of benefits, from reducing environmental strain on the planet to helping our own cardiovascular health.
If you are a meat eater who is looking for some tips to help you cut down on your consumption of meat, here are some simple tips that will get you on the right path.
Start Eating Beans
People often complain that nothing in a vegan or vegetarian replaces the richness and filling character of meat. We have found, however, that beans are great at filling you up and serving as a great “substitute” that possesses many of meat’s singular characteristics.
Plant-Based Meat Substitutes
As the years go by and more and more people cut meat out from their diets, more and more plant-based meat substitutes are available on the market. From tofu to tempeh to seitan, you’ll find something that takes meat’s place if you try hard enough.
It’s All About Mentality
If you go into your journey with the attitude that your eating experiences are going to get worse after cutting out meat, you are setting yourself up for a loss. Instead, be enthusiastic about all of the benefits that you’ll reap and all of the new flavors that you will try.
