Eating more vegetables is a no-brainer. We know they’re incredible for the health and functioning of the human body. Meat is good, also, but recently many people have wanted less of it. There are several personal reasons that include reducing heart risk, reducing acid reflux, the increasing price of meat, and so on. There are also environmental and ethical questions about animal rights and unethical raising, hormones and antibiotics, (un)sustainable farming practices, and more.
Eating meat has an impact on our bodies, sometimes good, sometimes bad. The amount of meat consumed makes a big difference, also. So, less meat obviously means upping your intake of vegetables. Then the question becomes about getting the right balance of nutrients when you may be accustomed to the traditional idea of a protein main portion with starches and vegetables as sides.
If you’re looking to do a meat cleanse, even when you feel like meat is everywhere and unavoidable, try these three tips to help get you through a month of less meat.
The good news is, with a balanced superfood supplement, you can achieve the change, eat less meat, and feel great.
Salads – More Than a Side
Up your salad intake. Salads are easy and can be part of every meal or snack. The recipes available online are pretty much limitless and simple to prepare.
Just don’t douse salads in cheese and dressing to the point that they become unhealthy. Here’s the solution: make your own dressing and add some green superfood supplement powder to it. You’ll get a double whammy of it tasting delicious while providing you with a boost of the best vitamins and minerals (instead of processed garbage). Less meat but a ton more vegetable intake. Try it for a month.
Meat as a Treat
Meat has long been the most popular mealtime staple. There’s no reason to this other than that’s the way it’s been done for a long time, plus the proliferation of meat available.
Aim for quality over quantity. This translates into eating meat a couple of times a week, but splurging a little on higher-grade organic cuts. While this might seem difficult to think about, it’s not. Replacing breakfast bacon and sausage with a green smoothie packed with potent superfood nutrition powder is easy.
As for lunch and dinner, look to protein from tofu, quinoa, fish, legumes, and so on. You’ll be looking up new recipes and injecting new excitement into your previously predictable meatfest routine. Your blood pressure and cholesterol will thank you. Add sprinkles of superfood supplement to meals and your energy and alertness levels will be grateful, also.
Scrumptious Baking – with Less Sugar
With less meat in your meals, perhaps some delicious baked goods might tide you over. You don’t need the sugary, buttery kind loaded with sugar and carbs. In fact, cutting out sugar for a month, along with reducing meat, will reduce hunger pangs in a big way.
Bake your own! From zucchini bread to carrot muffins, you can make a variety of fast and delicious veggie-packed treats that you can pick up on the go or savour at your leisure. If you really want to turn your snack into a way to reduce meat intake and increase vegetables, add a scoop or two of green superfood supplement to your recipes. It tastes phenomenal, too.
So, there are three simple ideas that don’t require a major lifestyle overhaul. Get your superfood supplement and try a month of less meat. You’ll surprise yourself. In a good way!
