When it comes to weight loss and hormone balance, protein is important. It should be a part of each of your 3 daily meals to help you stay full, but, it doesn’t always have to come from animal sources! Beans, quinoa, tofu, shiitake mushrooms, peas, chia seeds, and many veggies are a great source of protein and also provide phytonutrients and fibre that meat, eggs, and fish don’t offer. Want to keep your burger low carb? Go bunless and serve it on lettuce, or use 2 portobello mushroom caps as your bun.
For anyone looking to improve cardiovascular health, including cholesterol levels, to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and lose weight, eating more plant-based foods Is a sure thing.
Here are my favourite plant-based burger recipes from around the web that will make a great dish on a Meatless Monday, or to help you meet your daily fibre goals.
