Flexitarian…Eating for bicep curls? Consuming food that helps you do yoga? Combining breakfast and dinner (brinner!) to twist your way out of a dull meal next to that ‘know-it-all’ uncle who keeps flexing on his infinitely important ab work-out? "Uh-huh. Cool story, Unc. Can you pass the steak pancakes?" 

Flexing your flexitarian food feasts should be a fairly flawless feat. Combine your co-mingled carne con carrots and it’s complete. Being a flexitarian means being nimble, healthy, and appreciating some bio-diverse meals for you, your Future You and even your immensely important steak pancake eating uncle.

To help you “Tie-in flexitarian meals" here’s a simple 2-step process:

  1. Invite people to brinner
  2. Don't serve steak pancakes. (but consider lobster souffle waffles with some type of plant-based food on the side)

In the future, this role not only helps bring much needed bio-diversity to our meals, but wearing the top ‘flexitarian meal tie-in’ moniker becomes almost as revered as the guy who got your uncle to listen, ask heartfelt questions and focus on others, versus his abs.
