Remember last week when hubby and I decided to be vegans for 1 week?
Well, my verdict for becoming vegetarian is ......
2 vegetarian meals a week is good
I don't think I can ever become a 100% full vegan (I missed beef the most....don't judge), but can certainly cut back on animal sources of protein. However, I did like having all the veggies and trying out different recipes...
1. Roasted Asparagus Salad with Pine Nuts
2. Mexican Corn Stew
3. Vegetarian Pot Pie
....the hardest part that I found was the "preparation". It took longer to cut, chop, slice and mince all different kinds of veggies.
I have to admit that it was very different not having any beef (bison), chicken or fish the whole week but after a while, just like anything, you get used to it. All the veggie flavors were definitely good and I knew I was doing something healthy for me and the environment. I just don't think I can ever keep it up but I know that I can at least incorporate a few vegetarian meals during the week. My philosophy with food is: everything in moderation and as long as you are conscious of what you are feeding your body, your body will treat you well in return.
