Many meat-free recipes are full of flavor, high in protein and offer a healthy alternative to your typical ‘’meat and potato’’ dish. In addition to being delicious, going vegetarian regularly can also reduce your risk of chronic conditions, including diabetes and heart disease. Jump on the meatless bandwagon a few times a week with some of these veggie-filled recipes.
