a foodie resolution
A personal goal for this year is to not eat meat every day of the week. I do love vego meals and would like to master more of them. Due to my crappy kidneys it would be better for me to eat less protein so I'm keen to try.
We are unashamed and unembarrassed carnivores here, and our teenage boy doesn't regard a meal as a meal unless there's a meaty element, but I would like to have one night a week off - for me, anyway. There'll be some experimenting to come up with vego and meaty versions of the same meal.
Daughter doesn't like meat much and only eats small amounts so she will be in with me. She begged the meatless day NOT to be Monday - she said "Meatless Monday" sounded like a lesbian theme night at our local very skanky nightclub.
So last night was night one: my husband made his very beautiful pizzas - I normally just have a pesto pizza, but last night had pesto, loads of roasted capsicum strips ( from a jar) and some little pieces of haloumi cheese. It was delicious and very filling. I could only eat two pieces. Interestingly, all the rest was scoffed and some of the meatier pizza was left over.
I'll record my vego meals in this blog. Maybe over a year I can convert all four of us so it's a permanent change.
