If you’ve been following along for the past four weeks, you’ll know that today is week five of our Meatless Mondays six-week challenge! Of course, if you’re new here, it’s not too late to get started—just check out our first post to learn about how eating less meat can help the environment and your health. Avoiding meat even just one day a week can make a huge difference.
Not sure what to cook for dinner? As always, we’ve got you covered with a delicious three-course dinner that will satisfy even the biggest meat-lovers at your table.
Salad: Autumn Salad
This restaurant-worthy salad embraces the best of the season and even uses Canadian maple syrup—a healthier sweetener that’s packed with nutrients—to give it an extra kick. Make the dressing in advance and store it in the fridge, or make extra to use throughout the week.
Entrée: Roasted Yam Fajitas
Fajitas, one of the perfect dinners for a busy family, get a twist with this vegetarian recipe. A winter veggie staple, yams are packed with fibre, vitamin A, potassium, and even heart-healthy essential fatty acids. They mix with the tangy-spicy sauce to create a mouth-watering combination.
Dessert: Almond Butter Cookies
Who doesn’t love cookies? The almond butter adds protein and healthy fats to this vegan recipe—the kids will never know it’s healthy!
