Plant-based eating

I switched to a plant-based diet a few months after I gave birth to my 2nd child. It was a steep learning curve and I had to shift my focus from always including animal-derived ingredients to learning how to prepare meals that rely on plants for all nutrients. Including PROTEIN!!! :lol:

Thanks to Pinterest, I learned to prepare plant-based food for my family. I am happy to report that both my kids eat veggies everyday without complaint. (Gutom sila pag hindi! But they just think that it’s regular fare. Their tastebuds are trained to enjoy eating plants.)

So let’s talk about your shift to a plant-based diet here. What was your impetus for change, what are your favorite recipes? Pls post links to your tried-and-true recipes, lalo na yung mga kid-approved!

Let’s spread the plant love here!


Ey wkt! Hirap kasi mag gulay sa Pinas. Mahal, saka konti choices. Paborito ko spinach, pero mahirap sya mahanap dito. Pag salad-salad, limited dressing choices. Kahit sa mga fast food, wala masyado options (siyempre di ka dapat punta sa fast food for salad, pero just stretching a point).

I lived a year with my kids sa Antipolo. Namamalengke lang ako ng gulay sa palengke. Ok nmn ang selection ng gulay. May nabibili pa akong fresh mushrooms. Mas mura than buying veg sa supermarket.

And because I didn’t buy any eggs, meat or fish, I could buy fruit, which is more expensive than veggies. Pero kaya.

I liked making siguemchi namul, which uses spinach, but because I couldn’t find any in Antipolo, I subbed kamote tops. Pwede!

Tried it for a month. Pumayat ako, pero di ko kinaya

Vegan for 2 years now! :heart: mas naging masipag magluto.

Sali kayo sa Manila Vegans fb group. Nagso-scroll lang ako dun (and on IG) kaya hindi rin nauubusan ng food ideas.
