Some days you just want a salad. Or, you want a black bean burger with chipotle mayo. Whatever your tastes may be, I have grown to love having one night a week where I go “meatless.” Meatless Monday is an easy tradition to start, and you can add variety to your diet by trying new things like a Buffalo Chik’n Patty, original veggie sausage, or a spicy black bean burger. Meatless doesn’t mean boring or time-consuming. Your favorite flavors can be found in lots of healthy variations. I am so in love with the cobb salad idea in this round up below!
I recently purchased a few Morningstar products to jazz up our dinner routine. I whipped up this buffalo chik dip using their buffalo chik’n patties (link in round up below), and I also experimented with their black bean burgers. I loved to pile it high with vegetables including roasted red peppers and leafy romaine lettuce. Veggie burgers are nowhere close to being bland or boring. In my round up below, you can see a few awesome twists on a traditional burger.
Sometimes you get tired of chicken or fish and want to try something new. Not only can going meatless one night a week help save you money on your grocery bill, but it can encourage your entire family to try new things. One idea that I really want to try are “zoodles.” Have you made noodles out of zucchini? I have always wanted to try it! I have done spaghetti squash before as a “pasta” dish, but I’m not so sure I loved it.
