Nutrition: A VEGETARIAN MEAL PLAN

vegetarian-plate

 As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are focusing on cancer prevention in our cooking demos, I was inspired to create a sample vegetarian meal plan.   The American Institute of Cancer Research recommends a diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans , legumes, lean animal protein sources, nuts, healthy oils, seeds, alcohol in moderation (if ever) and absolutely zero tobacco use.  I know this may be a stretch for some, but you could simply take one meal per week and make it completely plant-based or try an entire day of lacto-ovo vegetarian (including eggs and dairy).  The sample plan will include the use of eggs and dairy but will not have the caloric information; however, nutritional balance is there…
