You know the saying, “Ask and you shall receive?” Boy, we sure do! When we decided to ask our awesome, incredible, fun and talented readers (yes, you) to send us pictures of their mouthwatering, original, plant-based recipes using the #EatForThePlanet hashtag on social media, we got a glimpse of some amazing food. Like, for real, can we come over to your houses for dinner?
Everyone who participated showed us the supremely awesome and totally delicious ways that you can eat plant-based and still have it be flavorful, colorful, fun and delicious – so, narrowing it down to five was not easy! But, we powered through and selected our top favorites from those who submitted in order to share their genius with our readers. Way to go guys! With its considerably lower impact on the environment (and your health too!), it has never been more important (or wicked cool) to choose a healthy, sustainable, plant-based diet and you guys really helped show just how fantastic it can be.
We absolutely loved seeing all of the creative dishes you came up with and hope that you keep posting them to Instagram or Twitter with the caption, “I made this [name of your recipe] for @onegreenplanet #EatForThePlanet.” Who knows? We might still reach out to snag the recipe and you could see it on One Green Planet!
And now, without further ado, our top picks are…
