Meatless Monday is an international campaign to help people reduce their meat consumption by 15% and to improve personal health along with the health of the planet. It’s an easy way to do your part and it makes meal planning for the week easy peasy!
What are some of the benefits of eating less meat?
I made this delicious roasted carrot + spinach bowl recently and I’m definitely keeping this hearty and healthy option in my lunch rotation. Make a big batch at the start of the week and separate into individual containers for a healthy lunch all week.
I prefer a bit of protein with my meal, so add grilled tofu steaks, rotisserie chicken breast, chickpeas or black beans. Sliced avocado would be great too! I threw in some leftover steamed broccoli that I had in my fridge. The taste of the roasted carrots and red onions are so full of flavour that I kept the dressing simple.

This recipe was inspired by a rouge can of chickpeas I had sitting in my pantry for almost 6 months. Since I love curry, I decided to make an Indian Chickpea & Cauliflower Curry to serve over steamed basmati rice or naan bread. Rice works better because the curry is a bit thin and can absorb better in rice.
Serve with a fresh green salad or some sliced cucumbers and you have an easy, hearty and flavourful weeknight dinner. Double the recipe and make an extra batch – because it freezes very well! (more…)
