What types of meals should you eat on The Flexitarian Diet?


Flexitarians are predominantly vegetarians, but they will still enjoy a steak from time to time. You'll specialize in adding five food groups to your diet: the "new meat" (tofu, beans, lentils, peas, nuts and seeds, and eggs); fruits and veggies; whole grains; dairy; and sugar and spice (everything from dried herbs to dressing to agave nectar sweetener).

In her book "The Flexitarian Diet," registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner provides recipes aplenty. you will be digging into pumpkin-spice oatmeal with hazelnuts, a meatless barbecue Baja burger, veggie enchiladas, cilantro-peanut stir-fry, sweet-cocoa yogurt, and apricots dipped in bittersweet chocolate, to call a couple of.
