#MeatlessMonday For Everyone

November 28, 2016 , ,

The fad of #MeatlessMonday is a trend I happily embrace. My home is meatless every day, and folks sometimes ask me how to become a vegetarian. I always reply that by slowly converting, finding meatless meals that satisfy and please, anyone can eat less meat. I know that plenty of people view a meal without meat as a sacrifice. This is where the #MeatlessMonday fad shines brightly. The great display of recipes on display every Monday clearly demonstrates how tasty and appealing vegetarian diets can be.  #MeatFreeMonday is the UK version.  I have been trying vegetarian recipes in my kitchen since 1969, and every week these hashtags yield new ideas for my menu planning.  I appreciate the recipes from around the world and the new uses for ingredients I eat frequently.  This is my favorite living cookbook, appearing weekly on twitter.

I use Pinterest to store recipes and keep them in order.  Although I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, I have a board that is vegan because we go lightly on the dairy and eggs.  Most of the food we eat is vegan, but we still include the dairy and eggs for variety.  My partner eats meat when he is outside the home, which does not bother me.  His consumption of meat is extremely low, and has no ill effects on my health or happiness.  His meat eating situation is between him and the animals he eats.  He is happy to take a vegetarian lunch with him to work every day from home.  I know sometimes he brags to his work colleagues about how they would never know his chili, or lasagna, or other dish contains no meat, and he makes them try it.  His coworkers share the meat dishes in their lunch boxes with him , so I guess it all work out in the end.

What is your favorite vegetarian dish, gentle reader?  I could not possibly choose just one.

I love this!~ I did a vegetarian lasagna for Thanksgiving because my daughter is a vegetarian. I got tired of cooking 2 entirely different meals so I cooked only 1.. and I cooked a lot of it too!
