Eat your vegetables

If you have Netflix you have access to a plethora of documentaries about food.  We have watched several of them over the past few months the most recent of which was Forks Over Knives.  After this last one we decided to eat less meat by having more vegetarian meals.  We are a couple of weeks into this and I am pretty satisfied with it.  I feel better after dinner when no meat is involved.  We’re also eating vegetarian the right way and actually getting more veggies instead of more Cheetos.  This part is important because some folks don’t do it the right way and end up feeling like crap.  So, if you don’t eat Cheetos what do you eat?  Here the meal plans from the last two weeks:

Week 1                                                                                            

  • Roasted portobello mushrooms with goat cheese, roasted red pepper & a salad
  • Stuffed bell peppers
  • Potato and leek frittata
  • Chicken barley soup
  • Baked potato with broccoli, cheese and green beans
  • Veggie pizza and a green salad

Week 2

  • Roasted portobello mushrooms with goat cheese, roasted red pepper & a salad
  • Chicken enchiladas
  • Spaghetti
  • Veggie pizza and a green salad
  • Orange chicken, sugar snap peas and brown rice
  • Baked potato with cheese and green beans

Speaking of meal plans, I like the one here.  There are lots out there to choose from if you poke around the blogs.  I really want to find a rad quinoa recipe.  I am not finding a lot in my usual places so I have some more research to do.  I also need to do a better job eating veggies in season. I tried beets. They are gross. I love sweet potatoes and butternut squash but D will not eat them.

What is your favorite vegetarian meal?
