With more than 1,600 vegetarian recipes available to Challenge members, you could enjoy a different vegetarian meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner and for your snacks for the whole 28 days of the Challenge.
6 simple family-friendly vegetarian meals to satisfy you and your kids.
1. Quick and Easy Pizza
Pizza making is an activity the whole family can enjoy and this recipe couldn’t be easier. Simply combine flour and natural or Greek yogurt to make this Quick and Easy Homemade Pizza Dough. The kids will love mixing this up in a big bowl, kneading it, and then rolling it out into the traditional pizza shape.
Make your pizza toppings interesting by adding roasted pumpkin, mushrooms, olives, asparagus or slice potato! The sky is really the limit here, the more vegetables the better.
2. Lentil Shepherds Pie
This is a great vegetarian dish inspired by a classic Shepherd’s Pie, with lentils taking the place of meat.
Using tinned legumes (like lentils, garbanzo beans, or kidney beans) ensures meals are still very satisfying without meat. They are a budget friendly way to add protein to your diet.
Serve in a large baking dish or make an extra one for freeze for those busy nights when you don’t have time to cook.

3. Autumn Minestrone Soup
As the weather cools down it’s nice to tuck into a hearty soup like this. Our Autumn Minestrone is amazing as it features plenty of veggies, is packed full of flavor, and is low in free sugars.
It’s perfect to make in a large batch to enjoy leftovers for lunch throughout the week. It also freezes well if you feel like making a double batch, then just defrost for another family meal when you’re too busy to cook.
Recipe available to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members.
