Want to Eat Less Meat?
Published: 10/22/2013

I have long advised people to eat less animal protein as a way to avoid environmental toxins. If you need some ideas to get your family or yourself started on a lifestyle that reduces or eliminates animal protein, try the following: 

  1. Use meat as a side dish, not as the entree.
  2. Prepare familiar meatless meals such as bean burritos and salads.
  3. Go meatless gradually. Start with meatless breakfasts and then incorporate meatless lunches as well.
  4. Substitute fresh vegetables for meat in recipes. Vegetarian chili can be just as delicious as the meat-based version.
  5. Try meat substitutes. Tempeh and whole soy products such as tofu or edamame can be as satisfying as meat, and are good sources of vegetable protein.
  6. Try new types of cuisine. Many ethnic cuisines offer meat-free dishes; you may not miss the meat when you have new flavors to entice you!
