These dietary Lent recipes range from meatless veggie burgers to superfood desserts that are both healthy and delicious. Whether you're religious or not, Lent is a good time to give up caloric food or drink indulgences.

From meat-free living to a rationed alcohol intake, many are gearing up for Easter by giving up some of their favorite food vices. Lent recipes don't need to be tasteless thanks to these winning meal and snack ideas.

Recipes like avocado egg appetizers and citrus-infused bruschetta bites are delicious while ensuring that one is getting their daily protein intake. Other meatless recipes from this list include superfood pizza pies that are garnished with avocado and artichoke along with arugula salads that are refreshing and light.

If you're looking to cut down on your alcohol intake but aren't ready to go cold turkey, try a carved cucumber shot glass or a boozy vegetable popsicle.
