Something I've been up to this week. Meat Free Monday's ...Almost there.

Have you heard of Meatless Monday?


It's kinda like, that whole 'Movermber' thing.

Only, like, giving up bacon instead of growing a sweet 'stache.

I've been on board for two weeks.



My first attempt at a Meat Free Monday was last week.  It started out beautifully, until I walked by a little  nosh plate, picked up a lovely little piece of cured salami and mid nibble realized that I'm an idiot : 'Mmmm, this is really good-oh-my-god-it's-meat-I-failed'. 


Yep.  It happened just like that~ out loud, and pretty much verbatim.

Delicious?  Yes.  Gormet pork?  Sigh, yes.  Shit.  I was so close to one completed day.

This week, I was ever more conscious and I planned out every meal the day before!

I made it!

The whole day!  Yippy skippy!

I've also now found a way to make brussel srouts taste NOTHING like the brussel sprouts your mom used to make. Really smokey and almost a bit crispy.


I'm going to try really hard to keep myself accountable, but no flaunting your cured meats around in front of me for a while.

Are there any other bloggers out there going meatless on Mondays?

Oh. And today is Thursday, not Monday...

And my In N' Out #2, 'animal style' was pretty darn delicious.

It's all about balance, right??

  1. Well, since our little household is struggling .... we have more than one meatless day to our week. After reading this I guess we can consider ourselves lucky not being able to purchase meat (and other foods)so we can stay healthier.

    Happiness to all.

  2. Just wanted you to know I awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award I really enjoy reading your blog!
