Sure, sometimes Henry and I eat what she is having. There are many good recipes and plans out there that allow children to get enough protein without meat products. I'll even go so far as to admit I feel better (less heavy, more fulfilled) when I have a meal without meat. But it is so hard to cancel out years of pro-meat conditioning when raising a child. (I grew up in the middle of America where you eat meat with every meal. Literally.)
So I've decided to commit to Meatless Mondays for the whole family. One day a week of thinking outside the box. (Well, thinking inside my veggie box, but that is a bit too cheesy for this post.) One day of offering Henry with protein alternatives and reevaluating what I was taught as a kid.
I wasn't the clever one to dream up MMs. For a great intro to the movement, check out:
It's a bit North America-centric, but you get the point. They also have a great list of 'why go meatless'
So anyone else up for Meatless Mondays? Anyone else already doing this and want to share about your experience?
Check back every Monday for recipes and posts! Jess xx
