Many people think a plant-based lifestyle means you eat “only plants” — but that’s not necessarily true. You don’t have to be a vegan or vegetarian to eat with a plant-based focus. For example, the Mediterranean diet as a foundation is plant-based, but it also includes fish, poultry, eggs, cheese and yogurt a few times a week (with meat only occasionally). Including more plant-based foods in your diet such as whole grains, legumes, nuts and more can help crowd out less nutrient-dense choices and improve overall health.
By starting your morning with more fiber-rich plant-based foods and lean proteins, you’re more likely to have balanced blood sugar levels and set your day up for success. The following tasty recipes contain mostly (if not all) plants and up to 20 grams of protein to keep you full and satisfied all morning long.
