Food Sustainability

Canada's Food Guide was updated in January of 2019. The changes reflect with the changing times and social economics and environmental sustainability played a large part in the decision making.

One of the recommendations that made the biggest splash was the emphasis to eat more plant based proteins. This has led to a growing trend of more vegan and plant based diets coming into the marketplace. Beyond meat burger anyone?

While I don't believe we all need to go out and become vegans, nor did the guide say to become a vegan - I do believe that it's important to at least try to implement-2 meals each week that are more plant based. It'll save you some money, help decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and not to mention, eating plants is just plain healthy!

Here is a delicious plant-based recipe from my VEGE 28-Day Meal Plan guide to try that will keep you feeling deliciously satisfied and that only takes a few minutes to prepare.
