I want to give you a simple method that you can use to make plant-based meals without a recipe! You may have heard the phrase "hitting your macros." This mostly applies to weight loss, healthy weight gain and fitness-minded folks who are trying to hit certain macro targets to achieve their fitness goals. But, if we take the simplified version of this concept into consideration, we can easily & quickly build some really delicious plant-based meals. So here we go: Step 1: Choose your carbs eg. sweet potatoes, rice, quinoa, squash, oats, etc. Step 2: Choose your protein eg. tofu, tempeh, beans & legumes, quinoa (it's a complex carb & a complete protein!) hemp hearts, etc. Step 3: Choose your fat eg. avocado, olives, coconut, hemp hearts (these are packed with omega 3), nuts & seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, olive oil, etc. Step 4: Choose a few of each of these ingredients and build your meal. Add some extra seasonings to suit your taste. Eg chili flakes, hot sauce, fresh or dried herbs, seasoned salts, infused oils, etc. Some meal examples: Breakfast: Overnight oats with hemp milk, chia seeds, nut butter & fresh fruit Lunch: Burrito bowl with rice, beans (rice & beans eaten together make a complete protein source) roasted sweet potato, avocado & salsa Dinner: Spaghetti bolognese with lentils, fresh basil and drizzled with olive oil Give this a try the next time you’re stuck on what to eat. After a while, making meals like this becomes second nature and you won’t have to put too much thought into it. Just keep this simple method in mind and don’t worry too much about mastering recipes, if you’re just starting out. We all start somewhere and the most important thing is simply getting started, so don’t let overwhelm keep you from hitting your goals and living your best plant-based life! Be Intentionally Well!
