Vegetarian meals

  • Borrow a vegetarian recipe book from your library or look for recipes online. For example, the One You Easy Meals app (download from iTunes or Google Play) has a selection of vegetarian recipes – click on the “V” icon in the app to get suggestions.
  • Plan your meals before you go shopping so you can mix and match ingredients to avoid wasting leftovers.
  • Make a list to stop you buying things on impulse.
  • Dried, frozen and canned goods often have a long shelf life, so try to always have some basic ingredients stored at home, such as rice, frozen vegetables, tinned beans and pulses, and pasta. This way, you’ll always have the start of a healthy meal.
