Low-Meat Eco-Challenge

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m challenging myself to eat me no more that two times per week for two weeks. Well, the next day, my wonderful husband brought home a pizza for lunch. With meat. And I had some pizza for lunch and then again for breakfast today. So I’ve already blown my two helpings of meat for this week! But I have a plan.

Yesterday, I served my family chicken burgers, and I had a Boca “chicken” burger. So that was easy.

I’m eating Weight Watchers Smart Ones meals for lunch, so I just picked meatless meals: Santa Fe rice and beans, pasta with veggie sauce, spinach lasagna.

I don’t normally eat meat with breakfast.

Tonight’s dinner was veggie chow mein. I used onions, carrots, broccoli slaw, a very small amount of fresh broccoli, zucchini and napa cabbage in it. No one even asked whether there was any meat in it, so I’m counting it as a success!

Also on this week’s menu: spinach ravioli with marinara sauce, bean burritos, scrambled eggs with potatoes and something yet to be determined that will be prepared and eaten while camping this weekend.

And thinking about all that? I’m not feeling deprived at all.
