Vegetarian Meal Prep – What You Need To Know

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll no doubt have noticed the soaring popularity of vegetarian diets amongst the general public lately. The popularity of vegetarian meals have grown so much in fact that recent figures have revealed over a quarter of evening meals in Britain contain no meat or fish at all.

Changing Habits

Believe it or not, but we even have a month dedicated to the meat and fish free lifestyle titled Veganuary where people commit themselves to enjoying a totally vegetarian diet for the entire month of January. With such a surge in popularity, here at Recipe For Results, we recognised the need for a vegetarian meal prep option. Not only that, but we also understand the benefits of one.

Benefits Of Vegetarian Professional Meal Prep

Believe it or not, the benefits that come with a vegetarian diet are many. Combine the benefits of a vegetarian diet with the numerous benefits of professional meal prep and the results you could achieve are unreal. Here are just a few reasons to try our vegetarian meal prep:

1. Weight Loss With A Vegetarian Diet

Switching from a meat heavy diet to a vegetarian meal plan can help shed unwanted pounds effectively. In a 2016 review that was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, vegetarian diets were found to be more effective for weight loss than non-vegetarian diets. This is based upon the fact that animal based foods are often high in calories and fat. Plant based food however, is higher in fibre which can help aid in healthy weight management.

2. It Reduces The Risk Of Disease 

Following a plant-based diet has shown to be proactive in terms of protecting you from a number of different diseases including heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes. Vegetarians, when eating a heavily plant based diet tend to ingest more vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and take on more fibre. This lends itself to lower blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol and lower BMI’s.

3.  Reduced Carbon Footprint

it’s only recently that we have begun looking heavily into our own carbon footprints. A vegetarian diet has shown to help reduce one’s own individual carbon footprint as less meat eaten means less greenhouse gases emitted. A recent study in America has even shown that agriculture contributes to around 6 – 7% off all the greenhouse gases in the US alone.

4. It Is Cruelty Free 

While there are of course a number of farms that provide humane, free-range lifestyles, there are many that don’t. Some livestock find themselves living in cramped sub-par conditions. There’s also of course the fact that eating vegetarian meal prep means no animals were harmed at all. Not eating meat means fewer farm animals suffering as a consequence.

5. Meal Prep Equals Tim Saved

We’ve all been there, attempting our own meal prep plans. Not only do you spend a huge amount of time sourcing the right foods, which means often travelling to one or more supermarkets but it also means spending a solid couple of hours once or twice a week prepping your meals for the next few days. Having a vegetarian meal prep service do it for you could save you hours every week.

6. Cost Effective

It’s no secret that quality cuts of meat are expensive. Opting for a meat free diet altogether could save a lot of money. Couple this with a professional meal prep plan and you’ll find the money you once spent on snacks and drinks is also still there in your bank account at the end of the month. Vegetarian diets save money as does meal prep. Therefore vegetarian meal prep is going to be the most cost-effective solution.

What They’re Saying About Us

I started Personal Training with Recipe For Results recently with a very specific goal in mind, but I had no idea how to achieve it or if it was even possible. When I met Martyn he was very knowledgeable and encouraging.

I started Personal Training with Martyn as I had recently had a hip replacement and I was very overweight and unfit. I had been doing a gentle, boring routine for a while and lost some weight but needed motivation to increase my fitness.
