Meatless Monday.

I go meatless everyday, but would you be willing to do it once a week? My family are all onmivores and I'm happy that they are willing to eat much less meat than before because of me. My husband usually eats about 50-60% vegan but had a meat-ful weekend of steak and sausage pizza and bacon etc that he woke up this morning saying "I'm not eating any meat this week. I feel horrible!" Of course this made me happy but I would still be happy if he had said that he would cut out meat once a week which is what made me think of "Meatless Monday". What a difference it would make if everyone in this country, in this world gave up meat one day a week?

Tonight's meatless dinner was something very simple as per request of the husband. Baked potato, beans, steamed broccoli and salad. The beans are Heinz beans that we get from a store that sells british foods. Not the fanciest dinner in the world but cheap, delicious and filling.

Since I announced that we'd be cutting back on our meat consumption, I find that my husband will be more vocal when he wants a lighter dinner (read: if he's eaten too much meat in recent days.) It's nice to have an impact.
