Your Meatless Menu For June!
It’s told to us from as soon as we’re old enough to feed ourselves at the dinner table..
“Eat your vegetables!” and with good reason! Vegetables remain the number 1 source of low calorie, high fiber, high vitamin & mineral sources on the planet! Whether you eat them raw or cooked with your favorite assortment of spices, herbs and accoutrements, vegetables are always a good (and affordable) choice!
With this in mind, we’re leading the charge in helping to make one #meatless meal a week as easy as possible for our fans! Many choose to join in the fun of #MeatlessMonday, but any day is a great day for one of these delicious meat-free meals!
Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
Made with red bell pepper, cashews and cilantro, this recipe combines tangy Thai flavors with sweet bursts of pineapple! Prepared on a stovetop (with a wok if you have it), the steps of this recipe go quick, so have your ingredients at the ready! For a dish that’s ready in less than 30 minutes (when you use prepared/leftover rice) it’s a fantastic flavor-filled, meat-free & satisfying lunch or dinner for any day, any time, any time of the year!
Grilling season is finally here and we couldn’t be happier! Described as “a total roundhouse kick to the taste buds”, these veggie burgers are packing chickpeas, oats, jalapeño, bell pepper, onion, carrot and green onion with lots of hot sauce and spices that bring it all to life! The best part? All it requires is processing the chickpeas with the oats, sauteeing & seasoning your veggies then mixing it all together. All in all they take 25 minutes (not including cook time) to prepare and we can’t wait to give them a try!
With lots of chia seed puddings to choose from out there, this one is unique because of a special ingredient – quinoa! And apart from cooking your quinoa beforehand, the recipe doesn’t require anything labor intensive other than mixing the ingredients together. The combination of quinoa, chia seeds and hemp hearts provide a great amount of protein in 1 serving, a total of 13 grams! This, with the sweet flavors of vanilla, cinnamon and even stevia or maple syrup makes this a great choice for breakfast, lunch or a no-fuss dinner!
Hailing all the way from Australia, this recipe is one the whole family can get excited about! With indulgent amounts of cheese mixed into macaroni & cauliflower with spots of peas and parsley, we’re sure a serving will do you good and then-some! With lots of protein coming from the combination of cheese and peas and plenty of vitamins & fiber from the cauliflower, this is one M.A.C. recipe you can feel good about.
