Be The Change #31 – Change your diet (week 4)

I’m just finishing week four of my experiment with eating less meat.  I estimate that I cut my meat consumption at least in half over the course of the 4 weeks.  I have to confess that it’s getting harder, though.  My meals are starting to feel repetitive.  I’ve asked my daughter and son-in-law for a vegetarian cookbook for my birthday later this month.  They’ve both been vegetarians for years, so I have confidence that they’ll select something good for me that will help me to keep this going.  I also think it will get easier when fall comes.  Al and I love soup and risotto, and we have many vegetarian recipes for both that we enjoy.

I confess ahead of time that I am taking a business trip in September and a 2-week vacation in Canada in October, and will probably eat a little more meat than usual on both of those trips. 

This will be my last blog post on the topic of flexitarian diet.  Overall, it was easier than I thought it would be, and I think it is healthier both for me and for the planet, so I will continue it. 

Here are this week’s menus.  As before, I am happy to provide recipes for starred items upon request.  Vegetarian Experiment Week Four
