It’s a time for gathering with friends and family and enjoying the beautiful bounty of plant-based foods. These Fourth of July Plant-Based Recipe ideas are sure to give you some ideas.
Sharing is a great way to show how yummy and beautiful your diet can be. I’ll bet it inspires some to get on board. Wouldn’t that be great! I know it’s especially challenging for those that have family members not ready to change.
With my friends, the more I served delicious plant-based meals and shared how it was positively affecting my life, the more they got it.
It also helps to have answers for the inevitable questions that come and have articles that tackle just that. Questions like “Where do you get your protein?,” “Are you getting all the nutrition you need?” “What about baking and frying?,” and even “It’s more expensive, isn’t it?“
Share something delicious this Fourth of July and let me know in the comments section what recipes were a hit. Doesn’t have to be my recipes. I love it all.
Also, be sure to check out this 4th of July Vegan Recipes for even more ideas from some of my favorite Vegan bloggers!
