I see recipes that include chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp hearts, and yeast. What are these for? Flavor? Omega-3s?
I'm asking because I want my family to start doing a Meatless Monday. We eat all veggie meals on occasion so it wouldn't be that big of a stretch. From what I understand, it would have a health benefit, and a budget benefit, ie. all veggie meals are cheaper than a meat centric meal - is that correct?
It would actually be a vegan meal because my husband has a severe dairy allergy so I check labels for sodium cassinate, whey powder, lactose acid, etc. And we don't eat eggs. I worry about him getting enough lipids and Omega 3s, especially since he won't take any supplements unless I hand them to him. Any tips on helping with that?
