A few weeks ago my sister, friend and I decided to go no meat vegetarian for a week. This all started after watching What the Health and we opened Pandora’s Box. Of course , we always knew things like that meat comes from animals and dairy comes from cows and goats. Well…. we know these things, but I don’t think we really grasp the severity of the situation. At that moment I was very conscious of what I was eating . Also, the fact that the restaurant we were eating at, had a limited selection for vegetarians. Now I’m thinking “Is this a good Idea?”
Our week went surprisingly well. I added a fb page , so we could share our meal ideas and get inspired. Also, my sister had been a vegetarian for a few years, so she had tons of tips for us. This made shopping and meal planning a lot easier. During the week I noticed that I was staying fuller longer, instead of grabbing a snack every few minutes. I also noticed that I was getting all of my servings of veggies in each day. Normally , I would get one in if I was lucky. Since, most fruit and vegetables are self-made on the go foods, it was easy to have everything right at our fingertips .
Now, here we are two weeks later still enjoying a vegetarian lifestyle . We all feel great and enjoy what we eat. As a bonus my friend has lost 10lbs so far!
For me , I believe that this is the start to a beautiful lifelong relationship.
Below are some delicious meals that we’ve made over the past few weeks. We swapped our animal meats for black bean burgers, veggie burgers, veggie chicken burgers , veggie bacon and tofu.
