Why Meatless Mondays?…
Introducing more plant-based meals into your diet can help you maintain a healthy weight if you have some weight to lose then adding more plant-based meals has the benefit of removing foods from your diet which cause weight gain.
Plants are high in fibre…this means by introducing more plant-based recipes to your diet that the health of your gut improves so you are better able to absorb the nutrients from your food… you will be eating foods that support your immune system and reduce inflammation.
Fibre can lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar and it’s great for good bowel management…
How is introducing more plant-based meals going in your kitchen… Going well or meeting with some opposition?...
This week …it’s French Toast and Pancakes why French Toast because I am aware that some of my readers don’t eat eggs either because of allergies or because they are Vegan…I have two recipes for eggless French Toast one I have tried and the other I am hoping one of my vegan readers will try and let us know as it contains nutritional yeast which I don’t have or use …
French Toast (1)
- ½ cup milk, regular or dairy-free
- 1 tbsp corn starch…I used rice flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp cinnamon, optional
- 2 slices thick white bread
- 2 tbsp butter or vegan alternative, for grilling
- ½ cup sliced strawberries
- Maple syrup, for serving
- Powdered sugar, optional
The other recipe is one I came across on a lovely blog written by a lady called Mimi…Her recipe for pancakes with leeks and mushroom filling with cheese sounded delicious and it was…I made half the recipe as is the norm when I am trying a new recipe and all my testers loved it…
