By choosing plant foods we give ourselves a tremendous head-start in both maintaining and regaining good health through all life stages. But establishing a healthy plant-based dietary pattern can be a challenge when it is unfamiliar; especially when we are used to certain dishes, ways of cooking, and the lure of convenience foods.

A few simple swaps can make including more whole foods in your diet so much more manageable. A great starting place is to ‘plantify’ some familiar ingredients and recipes. Perhaps spaghetti bolognese transports you back to your childhood happy place? This is a perfect example of a dish that is even tastier as a plant-based version. Simply sub out the mince meat for lentils (you can check out our lentil spaghetti bolognese recipe here). Adapting pantry staples and favourite recipes will help you establish a repertoire of trusted dishes, and there’s no shortage of recipes you can look to for inspiration and guidance.
