Eat More Vegetables Challenge Day 6: Learn the Secrets to Cooking Satisfying Meatless Meals

Put the emphasis on vegetables at mealtime. Pick one day (or just a meal) a week to eat meatless and have veggies be the shinning star on your plate. If you're worried that you'll miss the meat, include chewy, satisfying foods like seared firm tofu, grilled mushrooms and nuts, which feel more filling because they take more time and effort to eat than, say, a spoonful of broth. They also better mimic the way you chew meat-which makes them a more satisfying substitute.
