Hey…do ya know that it’s World Vegetarian Day? Don’t know ’bout ya, but I love my veggies.
Now, I have nothing against eating meat, I happen to eat it myself. But, I tend to be picky about the meat that I do consume. It needs to be humanly raised (pasture raised).
I do however perfer to eat a non animal protein meal, it’s just tastier. I love salads, veggies, hummus, fruits, etc.
Here’s two quick easy recipes for a vegan lunch. Enjoy!
