There are many paths to success when it comes to transitioning to more plant-based meals.

Check out this printable infographic all about making the switch!

Option #1: Try Copycats

There are many products on the market today that offer a plant-based alternative to popular meat dishes. Try a few and compare how they stack up in terms of taste, cost, nutrient quality, and ease of preparation. For example, consider...

  • Soy Dogs
  • Veggie Burgers
  • "Better Than Chicken"

Option #2:  Consider a New Invention

Combine a few elements and invent a whole new food!

  • Think: cronuts
  • Sushi donuts?
  • Unicorn rice burger?
  • Bruffins?

Option #3: Consider the Other Elements of a Meal

Is it possible that it's the "fixings" that surround a meat-based meal that actually pack the most appeal?

  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Steak Fries
  • Fried Coating
  • Onions

Option #4: Go for a Grander Scale

Presentation matters -- make your plant-based meal pretty!

  • Use a variety of colorful plant foods
  • Salad Bar
  • Poke-Style
  • Bowls

Option #5: Use the Plants

This one may be my favorite -- seek out plant-based meals that stand on their own.

  • Ethnic Foods (many of these have delicious stand-alone vegetarian options)
    • Mexican
    • Asian
    • Middle-Eastern
    • Indian
  • Soups
  • Chilis
  • Nuts and Nut Butters
