DALLAS (KDAF) — We already know what you’re asking yourself, “What in the world is a flexitarian?” Well, NationalToday says it’s, “Flex·i·tar·i·an (noun): a style of eating that encourages eating mostly plant-based foods while allowing meat and other animal products in moderation.”

Basically, the diet you follow is a majority of plant-based foods with the occasional meat/animal products included in your meals. Monday, June 13 is Eat Flexitarian Day which means it’s the perfect time to give some plant-based foods you may have turned your nose up at in the past, a try!

NationalToday says, “For many people, a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle can be difficult to adopt because it’s assumed that this limits many delicious foods– like beef, chicken, and bacon – and especially foods that satisfy savory cravings. Eating flexitarian is a great alternative and an opportunity for people to incorporate more plant-based foods that satisfy those cravings, with the option to enjoy meat or fish on occasion as well.”
