Going meatless

We've never eaten a ton of meat during our marriage. In the beginning, we were too poor and I was too cheap. In the last year or so, we had started eating a bit more, partly because I love cooking adventures, but also because Red Chief really likes it. It was still far less than the average American eats (almost half a pound a day, according to this article, or a third of a pound a day, according to this site).

Mr. Mordecai decided he wanted to try going completely meatless for a couple of weeks. Since I have a large repertoire of meatless recipes, this hasn't been hard to do.

Here is our almost-two-week meatless menu:
We will probably continue this meatless eating, at least to some degree, for longer. If you have any favorite meatless recipes, please share! I've also started a Pinterest board for vegetarian recipes that I want to try or that I have tried and liked. Scrolling down the board and looking at the pictures helps me realize how varied and fun our meals can still be.

  1. What fun! We went meatless for Lent last year. We ate a lot of sauteed greens - spinach, kale, and collards. They actually turned out pretty well! We also liked Golden Cauliflower Gratin.
