- It helps humankind. Did you know that our world has a growing population? The population of the earth is supposed to reach 9.1 billion people by 2050. That is a lot of people to feed. It takes us much less energy to produce vegetables than meat. We can supply more people with vegetables.
- It is healthy! I am not going to sit around and tell you not to eat meat. I eat meat. I eat meat more than once a week. But adding more vegetables, nuts, seeds, and healthy grains is just right for you.
- It will help you raise adventurous eaters. Introducing your kids to ingredients like grains, beans, nuts, seeds, and various vegetables early will help them make better choices when they get older.
- It’s Budget-friendly. Serving a meatless meal at least once a week will help decrease your weekly grocery budget. The cost of serving meat for dinner can add up fast. Adding veggies to a rice or potato dish is a filling way to serve your family a complete meal.
All of these meatless dinner ideas I am sharing today will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Your kids won’t be asking you where the meat is when you serve these delicious meals. These are also great ideas for you to serve if you avoid meat during lent. Vegetables contain a lot of protein, so eating vegetables in the place of meat at dinnertime is good for you!
