1. Add at least one extra side of vegetables with each meal:
If you like the idea of eating plant based but still feel like you need meat at least once a day, try adding an extra side of vegetables or a grain like quinoa to your meal ( and don’t be wimpy! Make those side dishes a nice and hearty serving size!). Eat the veggie sides first before the meat. You might realize that you feel satisfied without the meat, and this could be an indicator that a plant based diet could be right for you.
