Purely Delightful Vegetarian Dishes
Why does meat get all the attention? Sometimes the best dishes are a beautiful mix of vitamin and mineral rich vegetables packed with unbelievable flavor. We’ve put together four of our favorite vegetarian eats that make for wonderful meals and two very delicious snacks. The Slim-Repair® Muffin is a favorite and makes a wonderful chocolate-y treat to start or end the day.
