Granted, we are nothing close to being vegetarian, but it’s not a bad practice to eliminate meat from your diet on occasion. There are a lot of compelling reasons to eat less meat these days, but the shift to a totally or even partly vegetarian lifestyle can be easier said than done for many beef, poultry, and fish lovers. So within this past year we instituted “Meatless Mondays,” broadened our culinary horizons, and have come to enjoy the challenge of researching and creating vegetarian meals. Eating a little (or a lot) less meat can be simple, healthy, and totally delicious!
There’s even a Pinterest site called Meatless Mondays for some visual inspiration:
…a non-profit health initiative, encouraging people around the world to go meatless one day a week for their health and the health of the planet! http://www.facebook.com/MeatlessMonday
One recent dish was Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice with Spinach Stuffed Peppers. We found the recipe in another one of our favorite cookbooks “Around My French Table” by Dorie Greenspan.
