Peter and I are starting the new year off by eating meatless meals for 2 weeks. (Weekends not included- as requested by my meat-loving husband!) This little experiment is to determine if eating more plant based meals and less meat based meals will help us to feel better: less bloated and sluggish, and more energized and satisfied. We are in no way becoming vegetatians but this little trial period might be what we need to get us eating healthier and encourage us to base our meals around veggies and not meat.
Here is my menu plan:
Monday: Potato soup (minus the bacon)
Tuesday: Mushroom and broccoli lentils
Wednesday: Stuffed zucchini
Thursday: Mediterranean quinoa
Friday: Penne with roasted asparagus
Monday: Corn cakes
Tuesday: Lentil tacos
Wednesday: Quinoa with black beans and corn
Thursday: Pasta e ceci soup
Friday: Spinach roll ups
I will give an update and a review of the recipes at the end of the 2 weeks.
