Vegetarians enjoy a diet full of whole foods and fiber in the best-case scenario. But when you’re a vegetarian, it can be a challenge to create balanced meals that are satisfying and delicious. One way to increase the odds of getting in all the macronutrients you need is to meal plan.

Vegetarians may find it a little harder to eat on the fly because oftentimes the veg options on the menu aren’t the most creative or flavorful. If you’ve ever been forced to have a condiment sandwich for lunch, you know what I’m talking about. When eating out, look for menu options that include fiber-rich whole grains and vegetables alongside satiating protein sources like beans, eggs, nuts and seeds.

If you’re cooking all your meals at home, this sample day combines some of MyFitnessPal’s best recipes for a healthy 1,800-calorie day.
