Meatless Mondays

Happy 2012!  I hope you all had a fun and enjoyable New Years filled with friends, family, food, and of course bubbly!  I mentioned in my 27 at 27 post, I am not the biggest New Year's resolution person.  Throughout the year, I am constantly setting goals and making lifestyle changes to become a better person and challenge myself.  However, my latest challenge/healthy lifestyle change just happens to coincide with a new calendar year.  I have decided to do "Meatless Mondays" in 2012.  (side note: while I hate making exceptions to things, I will be attending Dinner in the Dark on Monday January 16.  Therefore, January 17 will be Meatless Tuesday).  I am looking forward to trying new recipes and the potential challenges of dining at some of my favorite restaurants and having limited options.

So I have to ask you, what are your food related New Year's resolutions?  Here's to a healthy, happy, and not so hungry 2012!

Until next time...follow your heart, fulfill your hunger!

  1. I think you'll be surprised to see how many vegetarian options are available these days. Obviously, I'm a vegetarian so I encounter these kinds of challenges everyday, but for the most part, I feel like the majority of restaurants in CLE either offer vegetarian dishes or will make something up special if you ask nicely.

  2. One thing that I do for a meatless meal is to roast an acorn squash with stuffing in it. It's really filling and nice on a really cold day.

  3. I am trying to eat more vegetarian foods although I'm not doing meatless monday yet- I usually just eat veggie when I feel like it haha! Eggs and kidney beans/chickpeas are my go to vegetarian foods :D

    Good luck on your journey :D
