The world is a dog eat dog place. But fortunately, we are not dogs. By transcending our lower instincts, we take advantage of the prerogative of being human. Sure, sometimes you’ll find your animal belly wishing for a hunk of meat, but you’re above your baser instincts: you’re a vegetarian. Or you are someone interested in eating a GM diet and living that vegetarian lifestyle, but you want to know more about it first. For both of these types of readers we have compiled a list of our top vegetarian recipes for a GM diet.

We know you health conscious folks out there have rejected all sorts of poisons that the modern world considers nourishment. One of the absolute best ways to avoid all these poisons is to modify one’s diet. Halting sugar intake will greatly decrease risk of diabetes and reduce the body’s overall inflammation. Likewise, cutting out animals is a great way to reduce your exposure to the hormones and other toxins that the animals absorb from their environments.

If you are already on the GM diet and are simply looking to bolster your collection of known vegetarian recipes, then this page is for you. But others will be asking, “What exactly is the GM Diet? Is it right for me?” For those readers, we’ll briefly give an overview of the methods and benefits of a GM diet. 

What Is the GM Diet?

The “GM” in GM diet, stands for General Motors. That’s right, the vehicle manufacturer. No, Detroit hasn’t been hit by a new devastating economic disaster forcing GM to go the nutrition route as a purveyor of vegetarian recipes. Today, General Motors has its fingers in just about every pot, making it no real surprise that they’ve figured out a new type of diet.

What is that diet? Well, it claims to help you lose up to 15 pounds in just seven days of dieting. Only seven? That’s right. You can eat any type of thing for a week. But luckily the GM diet is not all strained prunes and stewed cabbage. In fact, it changes considerably from day to day so that your week of losing 15 pounds will not get boring.

Basically, the GM diet is a set of vegetarian recipes that make up a diet plan, though some meat is allowed later. The diet consists of eating fruits, veggies and starch for the whole of it, but there are other requirements worth looking into. Namely, avoiding alcohol and making sure to drink a lot of water.
