Whether you'd like to reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer or just want to eat fewer animals, there are plenty of good reasons to go vegetarian at least part of the time. But if you're used to relying on steak, pork, and chicken to fill you up, you might find that going meatless leaves your tummy rumbling. It doesn't have to be that way.

"Meats are filling because they're comprised of protein or protein and fat, and protein takes 4-6 hours to digest compared to 1-4 hours for carbohydrates," says Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, a nutritionist, certified trainer, and coauthor ofThe Nutrition Twins' Veggie Cure. "Many meat lovers are afraid a non-meat meal won't fill them up, but vegetarian recipes can be really hearty and satiating—provided they contain both protein and fiber, which keeps you feeling satisfied by slowing digestion just like protein and fat do." 

Here are 11 meal ideas that fit the bill perfectly. (Heal your whole body with )

If you just can't get used to the taste of wheat-less pasta that's OK (provided you don't have celiac disease). Use regular pasta, but top it with a beef replacement like these lentil meatballs to make sure it feels like a real meal.

The peas or lentils offer protein and fiber, while the soup base "provides a lot of volume from fluid so it feels satisfying," says Lakatos.
