How to Make Vegetarian Meals That are Low in Fat

For those seeking to lower their cholesterol and to lose weight, there seems to be the obvious need for vegetarian meals that are low in fat.

Well, I don’t mean to brag but…being a mucus-lean vegan myself; you are reading an article from a guy who could help you out a lot.

In regards to making such vegan meals, the great thing about these meals are that one need not worry excessively about measurements, calories etc, since most of the ingredients are low-fat.

Even in the case of the use of vegan items like Avocados, Coconuts, Durian, Nuts & Seeds, these substances only have healthy fats with nil cholesterol levels, so they can still be used to favorable results.

Well, with those points hereby mentioned, here are a few of my favorite vegetarian meals that are low in fat content.


"Chocolate" Milk

-10-15 medium dates

-3 ripe bananas.

-1 Young Coconut (I don't usually use the water inside of the nut although I heard it has some benefits, I have tested it on me to a not so good result but again we are all different)

-16 oz cold Water

Blend everything starting with the fruits then the coconut.

Strawberry Delight

-4-8 strawberries

-1-2 Bananas

-8-10 dates

Try these samples out and I bet you they would taste better than any less healthy and more expensive smoothie you could get from your usual sources.


A raw-chef once stated that one's success with a vegetarian diet may hinge on his/her choice of salad dressings. That considered, here are some other favorites.


-2 organic Roma or Hot House tomatoes

-2 big Avocadoes (pitted)

-2 tsp orange juice (freshly squeezed) 2 oz of water

The Real Ranch Dressing:

-2 medium sized tomatoes

-2 young coconuts

-1/2 tsp of salt

-6 organic sun dried tomatoes

-I stalk of Celery

-1 tbs of lemon juice (optional)


Sweet Potato Pie

-Bake Garnet or Jewel yams (or Jersey Sweet Potatoes) in an oven heated to 475 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. -When it can be pierced, allow to cool. -Upon cooling, peel the vegetable and mash with avocadoes and a little bit of sea salt.

This is actually a great simple dish of most tropical countries.

Well, there it is folks, healthy vegetarian meals that are low in fat for tasty smoothies, salad dressing and PROPERLY cooked meals.

Now, these are just a few of my favorites and most were actually made from being creative and adventurous on those time when you want to spice up the simplicity of such a lifestyle as the vegetarian diet.

I hope the recipes above could serve as road-maps of sorts to helping you discover your favorites.
