My family is going meatless on Mondays for the month of April. Mike is not bought into the idea at all, he’s a real meat and potatoes type of guy. I told him it’s 1 day a week for 1 month, a total of 5 days with no meat. He can suck it up and do it! I've read about benefits of Meatless Mondays. It’s better for our bodies and for the environment so I want to try it for a month. If all goes well I’m hoping this can become a habit for our family.
The first week didn't get off to the greatest start. We were out of town for the weekend and I didn't have time to get grocery shopping done so I didn't have a very good plan in place. We ended up eating eggs and a salad for lunch and when Mike went to get groceries Monday afternoon I told him to pick up a frozen vegetarian lasagna. He ended up getting a butternut squash lasagna which I thought was quite tasty. Mike, not so much. He ended up eating PB toast. Thankfully E is so easy going he’ll eat anything. He had no problem with the butternut squash lasagna.
Next Monday I will have a better plan and will be searching Pinterest for meatless meals. I’m thinking something quinoa based. I’m determined to make this successful.
