The popularity of Meatless Mondays proves it: Vegetarian meals aren’t reserved for people who never eat meat. 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.
