People often ask me what my diet is, and although I don’t really have a specific label for it, I like to say “mostly plant-based.” I try to make my meals as plant-filled as possible, and I eat a predominantly-vegetarian diet at home. In addition to trying to boost my health by eating lots of plant-foods, it’s also important to me to pay attention to how animals are treated and the way the environment is impacted by meat production as well.

I was introduced to a “plant-based” diet in college when I watched Forks Over Knives with my friend and her family, and we were all inspired to start eating more plant-based foods after following the film. Not long after, I started this blog, and I began experimenting with different recipes using vegetarian and vegan ingredients. For me, eating mostly plant based wasn’t difficult, especially when I started learning that there are plenty of ways to enjoy your favorite foods without eating meat or dairy. I learned how to make lentil meatballs, cheese sauce out of nutritional yeast, and Caesar dressing out of cashews. Finding plant-based alternatives to my favorite foods made eating this way exciting.

I understand that it’s often hard to give up your favorite comfort foods or to even just come up with a tasty-sounding plant-based meal. This is where the Forks Meal Planner comes in! This is perfect for anyone who wants to try making more plant-based meals, but doesn’t know where to begin. Using their planner, you can get weekly chef-created meal plans with recipes that can be made in 35 minutes or less. It even generates a grocery list so you know exactly what to get at the store (major bonus!). There are over 900 exclusive recipes, including nut, soy, and gluten-free versions for all your dietary needs.

I made the Quinoa Green Goddess bowl from the planner, and it was so easy and delicious! Green Goddess dressing is another example of a food that I love, but one that usually comes loaded with anchovies or mayo. This vegan version tastes just as good, and the ingredients are simple and clean — definitely going to make a big batch of this again later. One thing I love about Forks Over Knives is that their food isn’t just plant-based. They make sure to focus on whole, unrefined foods, which means you know the focus is on health.

Eating plant-based might seem hard, but it’s definitely something that is attainable for everyone with the right tools. Even just incorporating a Meatless Monday is a great place to start, and when you have inspiring recipes at your fingertips, you never feel like you are missing out.
