Meatless March Update

We've been meatless for 2 weeks now.  While I can say that I have not had any major craving for meat (we have been eating fish), I can't say that things have been going smoothly.  As I had initially feared, finding good recipes has been a challenge.
The food prepared has been good, and some have actually made the repeat list.  The problem though, is that most of the meals are prepared with either rice or pasta.  I can't afford to be eating rice or pasta everyday.  My kids already pat me on the butt everytime they pass by me.  Carbo loading is not for me. 

So while I am not ready to throw in the towel, I am a bit frustrated.  Finding meals aren't getting any easier.

  1. Haha, that's funny about your kids and the butt pat! My family doesn't eat meat, we haven't for about 6 months.
    Check out and These are more of a vegan website, but they have a lot of recipes, and you could twist it to suit your family!
