Healthy Vegetable diet recipes
Make simple and delicious meals with these healthy vegetarian recipes.
Whether you’re a vegetarian or looking to eat more meat-free meals for better health, these easy vegetarian recipes are a delicious way to incorporate more vegetables, beans and whole grains into your diet. More and more, people are realizing that going meatless even once or twice a week can have real health benefits, including weight loss and reduced risk for heart disease. Why? Plant-based foods, such as vegetables, beans and lentils, are low in saturated fat and full of fiber, which helps you feel satisfied on fewer calories. (Most Americans eat only about half the 25 to 38 grams of fiber that’s recommended each day.) Plus, when you plan more vegetarian dinners you’ll save on grocery bills and reduce your carbon footprint: the worldwide meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of manmade greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the United Nations. Eating more simple vegetarian meals will help you save money too. These delicious vegetarian recipes showcase some of the staples of vegetarian cuisine and provide tasty culinary inspiration and cooking tips for every vegetable lover.

Special K Diet = Starvation2011-02-13 09:54:53 by MrWonton
Unfortunately Special K isn't a magic weight loss tool. The diet works by causing a calorie deficit - 2 bowls of Special K probably has less calories than your normal breakfast and lunch.
Using this principle, you may as well eat something low in calories that is tastier and healthier than Special K! I usually make vegetable soups in bulk, freeze them, and then reheat when I need them. This page explains it well:
Also, eating 2 very small meals, and one large meal (like the Special K diet suggest) is very bad for your metabolism
Anyone have any good healthy soup recipes?2011-02-13 12:18:35 by HealthySoupRecipes
I'm looking for new healthy soup recipes! Whats your favourites?
My mum taught me a pretty awesome chicken chowder which is low in calories (semi-skimmed milk instead of cream, chicken, sweetcorn, etc). It's always good on cold days.
Other than that I've been eating the usual homemade vegetable soups with anything I have lying around.
Does anyone have any interesting soup recipes (that fit in with a healthy diet/lifestyle?)
No boring cabbage soups please!
I was a fat vegetarian : (2007-04-22 22:35:25 by oakelle
Lots of junk food is vegetarian, unfortunately. It's easy to rely on cheese and refined carbohydrates for sustenance and I could go days without eating a vegetable. For the past few years I've been really conscious of eating lots of whole, unprocessed vegetarian foods and the weight has really fallen off (with exercise of course).
Congrats to the OP for considering going vegetarian. It's a very healthy and ethical diet choice!
I really like vegweb.com for recipes. There's a vegetarian forum here:
