Meatless Week

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was full of impulsive baking that I can't wait to fill you in on. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you an adventure that I'm going on this week. Fellow Pacific Northwest food blogger Lorna Yee (she's also a cookbook author, how cool is that?!) of The Cookbook Chronicles has invited us to join her for a week of vegetarianism, starting Monday, May 24th.

I was a vegetarian in my teenage years for a while, but it wound up being a phase. I've wanted to try it out again just for a short time to see what it would be like as an adult, and Lorna's Meatless Week is the perfect opportunity for that. I highly doubt this will be a permanent change, but I'm excited for the chance to have an increased awareness of the kinds of foods I choose to eat and how my body feels about them.

If you'd like to play along this week, head over to The Cookbook Chronicles and say hi to Lorna!

Hugs,

I'm not a vegetarian but I do favor reduced consumption of meat (I have one day per week for red meat, one day for fowl, and the rest vegetarian) so I look forward to both more people trying this, as well as vegetarian recipes.

It's crazy you've posted about this today. Last Friday I realized I'd only eaten meat twice the entire week. Which lead me to think I should make an effort to go a whole week with only vegetarian meals.
A couple years ago I would have thought that was impossible, but now that I know more about food and nutrition I know I could totally do it :)
I don't think it will be this week, but I know it will be soon.
