RP235: The Flexitarian Diet

ReMARKable Palate #235: The Flexitarian Diet

This week, I speak with Dawn Jackson Blatner, a registered dietician and the author of The Flexitarian Diet, a step by step plan for getting healthy by eating a MOSTLY vegetarian diet, by slowly eliminating meat. It’s a relaxed approach which is more pro-plant than anti-meat. I speak with Dawn about some fun ways to adjust the balance.

Dawn has agreed to give away one copy of her book to a lucky listener! Please leave a comment here about one takeaway you got from this interview. Did you learn a tip? Is there something you’re already doing to make your lifestyle more “flexitarian”? Share it in the comments, and we’ll pick one commenter at random to win a copy of the book!

    I just listened to the show about The Flexitarian Diet. After watching The Oprah show with Michael Pollan and Alicia Silverstone, I’ve been eating a lot less meat, and kept hearing this word “Flexitarian.” So now, I’m a vegan recipe junkie. It’s really fun to hunt down these “new” ingredients, such as tempeh and seitan, and try them out. I’ve been cooking at least one new recipe each week, with most being winners and only a few that were not to our taste. My husband grew up on a lot of meat, but even he will gravitate to the butter bean pate if it is there, ha ha! One trick I’m using is that I made a batch of veggie burgers and froze them. While my husband eats his meat, I have one of those and then we share the vegetarian side dishes. I would love to try the black bean burgers you discussed on this show. Thank you. Amanda from Maryland
