15 Plant-Based Stick-To-Your-Ribs Father’s Day Eats
Bait and Switch Barbeque — for a healthy and happy dad on Father's Day.
Did you know that choosing just one plant-based meal a day (instead of eating meat or dairy) can help fight climate change, and make a difference in your health?
Every time my dad used to visit me, he’d stop at Costco and buy a 12-pack of ribeye steaks on the way. He was worried he would starve at my house eating what he called, “rabbit food.” Yet, undoubtedly, he was surprised by how delicious and fulfilling our family meals were.
“This is really great!” he’d say, over and over again, excitedly eating another bite. The point is — old habits die hard, and old dogs have an even harder time learning new tricks (Sorry, dad!).
On the surface, it can be a simple switch. What’s not always so easy? Getting the dads in our lives on board to make healthier choices. You’re not alone. Whether you’re plant-based — or trying to eat more plants — many of us have experienced our families teasing us for what’s on our plates (or what’s not on them for that matter!) at least once or twice.
Father’s Day is just days away, and we’ve challenged our OMD community to whip up a plant-based meal that any meat and potato-loving dad will enjoy.
So what do you say — up to introduce dad to some new eats? Here are 15 “stick-to-your-ribs” plant-based recipes to treat the dad in your life.
