Delicious dinners that are healthy and easy to make; my favourite! Easy Meatless Dinner Wraps are a delicious vegetarian (and if you like, vegan) dinner. I especially like to make this meal when I have a large and varied group of people coming over. Half of the meat-eaters don’t realise that they aren’t eating meat and for the ones that insist, it is easy to use some actual ground beef.

Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
