It’s NO CHICKEN! 🐣🌱 #veganrecipes #easyveganrecipes #easyveganfood #veganuary #vegandinner

Everyone knows meat substitutes can sometimes be expensive. But what if you could make your own substitutes and know exactly what ingredients are going in for a much cheaper price tag? Check out this vegan ‘chicken’ recipe by @fitgreenmind!

All you need is chickpeas, chickpea flour (or any other flour), vital wheat gluten, water, soy sauce, salt, mustard, and some garlic powder. Blend that all up in a food processor until it forms a rough dough. Take it out and kneed it before rolling it out into a long log. Once it’s long, take it and twist it, then tie it in a knot. Add the knot to boiling vegetable broth and let it simmer.  After it cools down, you can take the knot and tear it into bite-sized pieces. Easy, right?

Reducing your meat intake and eating more plant-based foods is known to help with chronic inflammation, heart health, mental wellbeing, fitness goals, nutritional needs, allergies, gut health, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and more! Plant-based diets have also been found to lower rates and risks for various diseases! Conversely, dairy and meat consumption has been linked to many health problems, including acne, hormonal imbalance, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and more.

You’ve probably heard a saying along the lines of “You can’t pour from an empty cup” or “To best serve others, pour from a full cup.” The gist of these expressions is that when you take care of yourself, you’re better able to take care of others. Thus, the positive effects of a plant-based diet reach even further than the reduction in pollution and emissions. A plant-based diet will make you feel great, which will enable you to care for the planet and those living on it even more.
