Okay, I get it – the word vegetarian can elicit some pretty strong feelings. Or, maybe it’s just me.

I suppose it all depends on who exactly is taking it in.

To me, it’s always come across as so … extreme. So all or nothing. Right or wrong.

But, I’ve always been on the outside looking in. A meat and potatoes sort of gal, with a side of veggies for good measure of course. Thing is, I’ve always considered us to be pretty healthy eaters … at least in the realm of what’s typical.

But, thanks to a cold Winter’s night curled up on the couch and a scroll through Netflix, I came across a documentary that completely changed the way I thought about food.

I won’t get into the details here, that’s not what I want this to be about – I don’t have any intention of trying to convince anyone that my own choices might be right for them. I will say that I found so many of the messages it shared about a plant-based diet really resonating within me.

Here’s the thing though – I’ve never really been an all or nothing, right or wrong, black or white sort of girl. I believe everybody can make a difference, whether it be to the world, to another person, or to their own self, with even the smallest of changes.

I’m also not a big fan of labels. I don’t think things are always that simple, that black and white. And so, I’ve chosen not to use one here.

Instead, we’ve chosen to eat less meat, which for us, means a plant-based diet in our home. But, I’m just not ready to swear off animal products completely, so I let myself enjoy the odd burger when we’re out, completely guilt free because I don’t think it needs to be all or nothing, we don’t need to be vegetarians at all times to make a difference.

All this to say that we’re eating more vegetables around here.

And, just in case you’re looking to add a few more to your own plate too, I’m sharing a few of my favourite vegetarian cookbooks that have made this transition to eating more veggies a delicious one!

  1. Hi Kristi, I love all cookbooks and these look fantastic. While not a strictly ‘veggies only’ gal, I do try to find meals that will be veggie only from time to time. And I’m always looking for more great ideas. Thanks for sharing them.

    Hugs, Lynn

  2. I absolutely love my veggies… I’d eat them over fruit any day! I bet theres many yummy recipes in these books!

  3. Looks like someone watched Fork Over Knife, or something like that. I just watched it yesterday. Pretty powerful studies. Thank you for the suggestions.

  4. My husband and I have tried to be more conscious of eating foods with more nutritional value, and this year I want to find new and interesting ways to prepare vegetables and expand beyond steamed green beans and adding zucchini to nearly every dish I cook 😛 I definitely want to check out some of these cook books! (Also to your point about considering another perspective – we watched a sugar documentary last year and it blew our minds! Definitely made us think more about what we’re consuming!) Thanks for sharing this with Merry Monday this week!
