Share your own recipe or share a link to a recipe which is vegetarian or vegan. Try to link to sites that provide nutrition information with their recipes.

These sites provide vegetarian or vegan recipes daily or very frequently

If vegetarian or vegan foods are important to you, don't forget about the HealthyFood wiki! There are two recipes listed per day, one of which is a veg''n option. Almost all of the recipes in our Winter Recipes Calendar (Jan-Mar) are under 400 calories and are also low in carbs.*

My triglycerides are a little high. Along with the other tips provided by my doctor to lower them is a tip to eat more nuts. I love peanuts! Especially the “party” peanuts that are already shelled and are roasted with a little oil. However, there is traditionally so much salt on these types of peanuts that it actually makes my lips “burn.” Have any of you found a brand that has these peanuts with lower sodium/less salt? I’m not looking for unsalted nor am I searching for shells on or dry roasted peanuts. I’m specifically looking for roasted with light oil and less salt. Preferably in the North Texas area. Any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!!

Hi, so I am 37 years old and a very bad eater. I wake up go to work and don't eat for the entire day since I was about 16. Somehow breakfast makes me sick for the rest of the day. If I don't eat att all only for dinner I feel great.

However I want to be healthy and an trying to do some research about healthy food. The problem is that nothing is a fact.

I searched eggs for example. I found different studies that an egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol which is 62% of daily adviced intake. You can eat 3 eggs per day without any problems if you are healthy. And it even lowers the risk of a stroke.

But the problem is that in every single article it adds that it is different for each person. If you have type 3 diabetis eggs are bad. If you have high blood pressure that amount of eggs is bad. And each individual person has a a different reaction to it.

I researched about 10 products now and not one garauntees that it is healthy for 100%. A paprika for example is healthy but they spray a poison on it that prevent the bugs from eating it and make them last longer with the right color. This is a prohibited thing and not allowed anymore. My brother in law happens to work with vegetables and they still use the poison and everyone else also does because it just would hurt sales if they don't, every inspection knows about it and they ignore it for the sake of business.

So how do I ever know if what I am eating is healthy by scientific facts? I just want to make a daily routine of 3 healthy meals a day but after doing research I do think know anymore. Might be better by eating the least amount of food that is possible.

Any advice on this? Do you know any type of food that is 100% good for your body with researched backup and is known to not be sprayed with poison that is not allowed? Or is it all bs and should I just eat what makes me feel healthy? I am confused about this all because I want to be healthy but there is no way to know that if you think you eat healthy you might eat pure poison without knowing it. Like paprika, my brother In law is the most easiest person and likes to eat meat with his meat just like me but he stops eating certain vegetables since he works with it. So how do you know?

I realize that my stomach's chemistry is off because I am semi frequently constipated, I don't really have acid reflux , but occasionally I have had diarrhea and I'm changing my diet from having as much sodium and I wanted to know what other foods are good for stomach health.

Hey redditors! I'm a 15 year old wrestler. With wrestling season starting, I'm looking for foods high in protein and carbs. I've done a few hours of research concluding I need atleast 180g of protein a day, and around 2400 calories. My goal is not to lose weight but to gain muscle. I work out 5 days a week, and 3 out of those 5 I work out twice. I am around 110 lbs with around 12% body fat. I am definantly not eating healthy enough to gain lean muscle mass. I am not trying to bulk up, but gain strong, lean muscle. I generally drink a shakeology superfood shake after workouts, and something light before. I get over 8 hours of sleep, but still struggle to have enough energy for my intense routine. Any tips for daily meals, or pre/post workout snacks/meals that not only fill me up with enough nutrients, but also give me extra energy?

I used to be really into baking and I've recently rekindled my love for it. Since starting back up 3 weeks ago I've made 3 batches of cookies, 3 full sized cakes, 1 mini cake, a few batches of tortillas, and one dinner's worth of homemade ravioli. As you can see it's primarily dessert.

I will continue making the tortillas and pasta (though I seriously need a pasta maker) but I need ideas for other healthy baked goods. What are some healthy baked good recipes or ideas that I can make? Also any kind of healthy dessert idea would help too!

I love eating pretty healthy, but I love it more when I can combine unusual ingredients and have a lot of variety. Unfortunately, I'm in school, so my time and budget is low and I get overwhelmed by cooking all but the most basic things during the week. I'd overcome this by getting a lot of frozen fruits and veggies, but at my new apartment freezer space is almost nonexistent. When I get a lot of fresh produce, it tends to go bad while I'm busy and then I dont have much until I hit the grocery store again in a week or 2. Have yall had this same dilemma? It just feels like options are super limited, especially since I've given up on buying avacados because they're always overpriced and gross here. Sorry this is kind of a vague rant, I'm just frustrated.

Hello! I am a 19 year old trans woman desperately seeking to increase weight and estrogen levels... does anyone have ideas for a daily calorie amount, snacks that are easy and help gain weight, or smoothie recipe?

So I'm usually good with calorie cutting. Once a week though, I loose my mind from hunger. Last night, I ate two huge flat bread pizzas (had about 2/3 lb of cheese!) and 4 bowls of fruity pebbles. I was just so hungry that I couldn't help myself. Again, it is only once a week, but I hate doing this and I feel like bloated and like crap after. How can diet throughout the week while still resisting my temptation to binge eat once a week? I usually eat fish, chicken, eggs as protein source. Always a big bowl of veggies too. Also, I drink over 100 oz of water per day, plus several cups of black coffee. I know water is not the problem. If you have any suggestions to resist the binge that would be great. Not completely cutting out food I like once in a while, but resisting this massive caloric binge. Thanks!

Hey guys!

I just started eating healthily thanks to your suggestions. I have really bad thirst all the time, especially at night.

Did any of you experience a change in thirst when you ate healthy?

So to start off I literally eat fast food everyday and I know it’s bad and unhealthy but it’s a bad habit I can’t seem to break out of and I wanna change my eating habits because I know this will get worse if I keep it up any advice? What kinds of foods can I cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I’m really motivated to change my eating habits.

I am just wondering. They always say that carbs like white rice and white bread is not healthy. But is it the same for white jasmine rice?
