The Meatless Monday Movement was founded on the idea of cutting out meat for just one day in hopes of reducing meat consumption for personal and planet health. This year I have focused on adding more plant-based meals into my diet to keep it on track and balanced. Here are 26 absolutely delicious and healthy plant-based, gluten-free recipes to help you add more veggies into your weekly routine!
