This Saturday (24 October) will be Food Day 2015. The focus of this year Food Day is “Toward a Greener Diet”. The event aims at raising awareness about the critical importance of eating less meat and enjoying more whole plant-based foods as a way to become healthier, to help animals and the environment.
To celebrate this event, and hopefully to inspire you to add some yummy plant-based foods in your diet, here is the compilation of four of my favourite vegetarian, oriental mezze dishes: oven-baked edamame falafels, eggplant dip (baba ghanoush) with walnuts, tahina (a purée of sesame seeds), and the famous tomato-cucumber-onion salad. Dan and I enjoy this healthy meal regularly, even if I sometimes end up having to buy store-bought, frozen falafels when I don’t have time to prepare them from scratch.
You can also be involved and eat green for Food Day this Saturday – or any other day! If you need a bit of inspiration to get you started, have a look at the recipes I already posted for some easy-to-make vegetarian dishes. I also regularly post on the blog some meatless recipes, and specially every Monday for Meatless Monday, so be sure to follow I try to eat healthy on your favourite social media, or by subscribing by email, to stay informed of the new recipes.
If you eat green this Saturday, please let me know!
