Happy Earth Month! We’re all about trying to make greener choices this month, including toting reusable water bottles and mugs, packing litterless lunches, swapping out our cleaning, beauty, and personal care essentials for green versions, and just trying to decrease the impact that we have on the environment.
Since meat and dairy production produces a large amount of carbon emissions and uses large amounts of water and fossil fuels, incorporating more plant-based meals is also on our list – just swapping out one meal regularly is an easy way to reduce your footprint.
So this month, we’re challenging ourselves (and you!) to make one meal per week a meatless meal! Here are 10 awesome vegan recipes (tried and tested by some of our own resident veggie-lovers) to inspire you:
Filling, delicious, and WAY better for you than a fast food burrito bowl.
Made with lentils instead of ground beef, because everyone should be able to enjoy a good sloppy joe.
A tasty, healthy, more earth-friendly alternative to your go-to takeout.
This super cozy, super easy one-pot meal makes for amazing leftovers.
Perfect for make-ahead lunches, or whenever you’re having a sandwich craving.
A crowd-pleasing vegan lasagna that will impress even the die hard meat lovers at the table.
This dish comes together in a flash, and is just as delicious after being stored in the fridge overnight and eaten lunch the next day.
What’s better than a cozy, comforting, healthy meal? One that’s all that, plus super easy to make in the slow cooker!
