Meatless Day?!

Eggplant Parmesean from Clydes:)  I give it a happy stomach:)
Last week, I tried going meatless for a day.... it was Thursday of last week to be exact. Initially, I thought it was going to be a challenge, but it turned out that it wasn't so bad. In fact, I enjoyed it and found that I was so satisfied & even had more energy that day. It was a great experience:).

What's funny is that when I was in college, I went meatless for 2 years and was thick as a snickers (aka overweight) and was unsatisfied with food.

Now, after trying a day, I realize my errors while going meatless in college, in that I wasn't building a satisfying and delicious meal, but was filling my meals with high calorie empty foods. But now, I know that I can:) go meatless for a day, a week, however, long I want and be satisfied and enjoy it:) by trying different protein sources and pairing them with veggies, grains, fruit, etc Have you ever gone meatless?!! What was your experience and what are your fav meatless dishes?

Check out what I had on my meatless Thursday:):

Oatmeal w/ wildberries
Almond bar
Arugla salad w/peanuts, cheese crumbles, fruit
Eggplant Parmesean (from Clydes:) so delicious)
Peach Cobbler w/ a scoop of ice-cream

I think I just might try another meatless meal!!


  1. I think the church use to have fast from meat. I notice differenc but I got real creative with foods. My fav is meatless pasta dishes. ex. baked Ziti:)

  2. ooh what do you do with the baked ziti? what veggies do you add?

  3. The next time you have yourself a Meatless Day, let me know so I can point you in the direction of some vegetarian / vegan restaurants in the DMV that I, a meat-eater, have grown to love. :-)

  4. ooh c. Anderson..yes indeed...actually shout some out now...so i can be ready..i was thinking about making it a weekly phenomenon to go meatless at least once a week

  5. You can add mushrooms, peppers or zucchini. But, it is made with cheese, sauce and pasta. You can add veggie. You can do the samething with stuff shells and ricotta cheese.
