NUTRIENT PACKED MEAL
You do not have to be a vegan nor vegetarian to eat a good amount of nutrient rich plants.
A good way to incorporate more vegetables in particular into your diet would be to consume a vegan meal per day or if that is too much start with once per week. The simplest way is probably to always serve a mixed side salad or steamed vegetables with your main meal. Don't be shy with the vegetables either, explore all varieties and have fun whilst doing it. Don't just stick to the usual cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce please!
This salad contains rocket, peppers, carrots, cauliflower (yes you can eat cauliflower raw), avocado, mixed bean sprouts - providing a good amount of protein, tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, green olives, marinated garlic cloves as well as red cabbage and beetroot sauerkraut. I served it with a spicy walnut dip.
