Strategy #7: Try Tofu
You don’t have to be a vegetarian to eat tofu. Extra-firm tofu is meaty and filling, making it a fine addition to summer kebabs on meatless nights. The great thing about tofu is that it absorbs the flavors of the ingredients it’s cooked with. Try adding it to summer veggie soups, stir-fries, and grain pilafs.

Strategy #8: Be a Vegetarian By Day
Meat can sneak into every meal of the day if we let it, so try going meatless for two out of three meals. Make a yogurt, blueberry, and granola parfait for breakfast. For lunch, have an avocado, tomato, and Cheddar sandwich or a bowl of vegetable soup with croutons. Save the daily meat for dinner.
