I started thinking awhile back that I wanted to stop eating meat of all kinds. But I kept thinking of never eating a steak again or a big juicy burger and I didn’t think I could do it. I’ve been playing with it for the last two weeks. I had a steak last Sunday but no other meat for the last two weeks. It wasn’t difficult.
Today I made chili, with meatless meat. Guess what it was good, it tasted like the real thing. The hardest thing about making this choice of no meat is thinking about what you give up. Being able to make something that is part of my old way of eating but better makes me proud. I think I could serve this to my family and they would not know the difference. I worried a lot about not being able to eat with the family, that I would always be making the kids one thing while I ate another.
I need to pick up some more meatless crumbles soon I’ve got a casserole I think I can convert and the kids will never know. I love spicy bean burgers too. This feels good and feels right, yey me!
