We survived four straight days without meat, a first for either of us! We liked the idea of it and had always wanted to challenge ourselves and it definitely worked. Robert even said it was easy and he would like to do more weeks with purposeful days of eating no meat. The Indian spiced bean soup was our favorite by far and will probably be a regular household meal. I even threw together chapatis for that meal, surprising Robert since he never knew I learned how to make them in college years ago.
A few things we learned:
- breakfast and lunch are relatively easy without meat, we often eat meals that are naturally vegetarian at those times
- eggs are amazing, cheap, filling protein
- we can pressure cook a lot of beans and eat them all in a week too
- we ate a lot of carbs to stay full without meat.
