Go meat-free any day of the week by adopting a flexitarian diet.

I am Annabelle Randles co-founder of eco retailer By Nature and this is my blog The Flexitarian where I write about food, ethics and the environment. After years spent as a committed carnivore, I decided to turn to flexitarianism and reduce my meat consumption to lessen my carbon footprint. Going vegetarian or vegan was too daunting but I discovered the flexitarian diet and it felt much more accessible.

Flexitarians (aka Flexible Vegetarians) have a plant-based diet with the occasional addition of meat. Some people will have a meat-free meal once a week while others will only eat meat on rare occasions.

The flexitarian diet is increasing in popularity especially with people who do not want to commit to a full vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. It allows them the flexibility that they can adapt to their lifestyle, social life or health conditions.

Whether you have just decided to eat less meat or are already a committed flexitarian, you will find a lot of useful information on our website as we explore flexitarianism through the health, ethics and environmental issues linked to meat consumption.

Browse our vegetarian and vegan recipes to find inspiration or learn more about the Flexitarian Diet here.

In a need to reconnect with our food we are also committed to promoting local, seasonal and organic produce.

Try flexitarianism you will be surprised at how easy it is. It will also benefit your health and the environment.
