Whether eating casually or getting together for feasts, food is one of life’s great pleasures. Vegetarian and vegan food is exciting, sexy and the way of the future!

The UK Vegetarian Society has provided this weekly meal plan: 7 Day Meal Plan. The recipes all work for NZ cooks and the plan encompasses all the nutrition needs we have, with tips and links to other resources.

Better Health

Taking control of your health and quality of life starts with a plant-based diet. Vegetarians tend to have better health, live longer and have lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and some cancers. Fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients and are not only your best bet for disease prevention, they can be an easy way to reverse damage already done. Follow the Power Plate to optimal health.
