Easy Lunches for ideas.
Next, you can start working on veggie dinners. Try one or two per week and then
build from there. First thing you know, you will be making grocery lists with
no animal products at all !
Planning As you
develop your own menu plans for an average week, try to plan a variety of types
of dishes - for example, one pasta dish ( spaghetti), one rice dish (quick
risotto, vegetable fried rice), a mock meat dish (Salisbury veggie burgers), a
stir fry, an exotic meal (e.g. vegetables with a spicy Thai sauce), a tofu meal
(Tofu Cacciatore), a truly vegetable meal ( veggie pot pie), a "fun" meal such
as nachos, pizza or quesadillas, a weekend meal (Cashew Nut Roast with Herb
Stuffing), a hearty soup and salad, a tempeh dish. You will soon find that you
have more variety than you did when you were an omnivore ! See our

Vegan A few of
the recipes include eggs and dairy products. The commonly used definition of
vegetarianism includes eggs and dairy products (ovo-lacto vegetarian.) A vegan
does not consume animal products at all. If you are starting from an omnivore
diet, you may want to go through the "ovo-lacto" stage (as this web designer
did), even if your eventual goal is to become a vegan.
