2. Your Plant-Based Options Galore!
When it comes to going plant-based, the options are truly vast! Multiple plant-based diets exist to suit anything from aspiring vegan athletes to those just looking to give their health a boost. Here are a few of the choices:
- Vegan: Vegans completely shun animal products, including meat, eggs, and dairy, and instead focus on nourishing their bodies with plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, and grains.
- Vegetarian: Vegetarians subsist dietarily on plant-based foods, but allow for the occasional egg or dairy product.
- Flexitarian: Flexitarians are largely plant-based, but do enjoy meat or animal products in small amounts.
Most of these diets have variations, too. For example, pescetarians include fish and other seafood in their diet, while whole food vegans focus on consuming whole foods only. And these are just a few of the various plant-based diets out there.
3. A Look at the Classic Chicken-Free Sandwiches
When it comes to classic sandwiches, meat is always a key ingredient. But just because you don’t eat meat, you don’t have to miss out. Here are three classic chicken-free sandwiches guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds without any animal products.
- Egg salad: This decadent combination of boiled eggs, mayonnaise, and seasoning is a classic lunch option. Add in a sprinkling of cracked pepper, a dash of paprika for a bit of smokiness, and freshly chopped spring onions for a lingering kick of flavour – delicious!
- Bean and Chorizo: Skip the chorizo to make it vegan-friendly, and enjoy the flavours of tomato, garlic, and olive oil in this hearty combo. Serve with avocado for extra creaminess and crunchy lettuce for a taste of freshness.
- Grilled Cheese:This old-fashioned classic is easily transformed into a vegan option, using plant-based cheese and a grilled slice of bread. Add in tomatoes and spinach for a nutritional boost, and some paprika to give it a spicy edge.
