“Hi Emdoc. Would be very interested in some meat free recipes if you have some to share!”

I’m assuming this query is follows me tweeting last night about how much I loved Dr. Morgan’s pasta recipe suggestion? 😆  I love food. I want my patients to love food. No one should feel hungry. We want to eat smarter, healthier – but always enjoyable! (Starving yourself doesn’t – won’t – work – whatever today’s trending TikTok influencer says.)

So, where to start going meat-free?

The recipe I made last night? Dr. Morgan was tweeting about:

https://cooking.nytimes.com/…/1018322-one-pot-spaghetti… and it sounded really good (I substituted spinach for kale.)

I blogged about food, nutrition, and label-reading for a whole week in May! You can scroll back up to the posts the week of 9 May 2022 or try just the recipes that I archived on the blog:

If some of you are feeling: “That is just outside the food budget right now!”

Yes, absolutely. That is a huge concern of mine as a doc when food prices soar – diets become less healthy. I talked about this – and some approaches – recently on @LMFM radio a couple of weeks ago. If you missed it, you can read back here: https://emdoc.ie/…/wealth-is-health-or-the-impact-of…/

My favourite go-to when I am feeling like something new? Jamie Oliver has embraced meat-free days! Two that I’ve recently, I’ve tried – and loved! –
https://www.jamieoliver.com/…/seven-veg-tomato-sauce/ (Makes loads and freezes well for a quick weekday meal later.)
https://www.jamieoliver.com/…/roasted-black-bean-burgers/  (Little more effort but SO tasty. Go completely plant-based/ futher reduce the cholesterol in this recipe? Choose whole-grain bun, swap for a plant-based yogurt and skip the cheese.)
