When it comes to reducing the impact people have on the environment, eating less meat is one of the easiest and cheapest things any individual can do to help. In support of National Vegetarian Week, we’ve put together a guide to easier vegetarian cooking, so whether you’re giving it a go for one week or with the intention of it lasting forever, we’re here to show you that going veggie doesn’t have to mean more time in the kitchen or food with less nutritional value.

Get vitamin B12

Often, people assume that a vegetarian diet is healthier by default. However, that’s not always the case. Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body's nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells – and a meat-eating diet contains a high percentage of it.

But the good news is, you can cut out meat and still get all the benefits of B12 with the right substitute. Two large eggs (100 grams) supply about 22% of the RDI of vitamin B12, and even better, the VonHaus egg boiler takes the guesswork out of cooking the perfect boiled egg.

Also suitable for poached eggs, you can cook poached for breakfast, have a couple of hard boiled in your salad at lunch and a good old runny egg and soldiers for tea. (Maybe not all in one day, but it’s clear that the egg boiler will prove itself invaluable for a healthy vegetarian diet.)

Avoid refined carbs

Pasta, bread, bagels and crackers are a staple of the poorly planned veggie diet. Unfortunately, they have been stripped of almost all their nutritional value and are high in processed sugars, which is why they are not considered a choice of sustenance when it comes to a balanced diet.

In complete contrast, courgette is filled with vitamins and minerals. It contains zero fat and is high in both water and fibre content. So if you needed a reason to try courgetti, this is it. For those that don’t know, courgetti is the delicious alternative to spaghetti. Just get your hands on the VonShef 2-in-1 Spiralizer & Slicer and cut yourself some ribbons of green goodness. Courgetti tastes great with a whole bunch of other ingredients, so create a flavour combination you love and enjoy! (And if you love that, be sure to try butternut squash noodles too.)

Reduce prep time

The one downside to eating more fruit and vegetables is that you’ll need to do a lot of slicing and dicing. Unless you’re equipped with a VonShef Mini Chopper, of course. This clever little tool will allow you to handle meal prep in minutes. Bi-level, stainless steel blades and two speed settings make it ideal for chopping, blending, mixing and pureeing a variety of ingredients in record speed.

So if preparing a salad just seems like too much effort, or cutting onions just makes you cry, the mini chopper is your best friend when it comes to making vegetarianism easy.

Reduce prep time

When you choose to adopt a veggie diet, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice hearty meals. Swap meat for lentils in a vegetable cottage pie and you’ll still get valuable protein without any minced beef in sight. Protein is the building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. Broccoli, sweetcorn and lentils are amongst the top high-protein veggies.

Pack in the protein.
