Meal Plan for a Flexitarian

Flexitarianism is a term used in the USA to describe someone (aka a semi-vegetarian) who follows a predominantly vegetarian diet, but makes the occasional exception for social, nutritional or pragmatic reasons, and will eat meat, poultry or fish sometimes.

For example the flexitarian may eat solely vegetarian foods at home, but when eating out may consume meat for ease; or the individual may be prone to iron-deficiency anaemia and choose to include haem iron-rich meat once per week to improve well-being.

Suitable example meal plans for a flexitarian include Meal Plan for a Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian or the one below, which has been designed for a lacto-ovo vegetarian who includes milk, dairy products and eggs in their diet routinely and the occasional dish based on meat, poultry or fish. It is nutritionally balanced for weight maintenance.

Like all plans, it is merely an example and needs to be adapted to suit an individual's own lifestyle, daily routine and nutritional requirements. Use this to give you an idea of what are healthy nutritious vegetarian foods to include, but don't forget to vary your food choices and to drink plenty of water through the day.
