There was a bit of a breakdown in the daily blogging/photo posting towards the end of last week. Life, as ever, got in the way but we still successfully stuck to the meat-free diet for a full week. I will still post up the photos/recipes for the Jamie Oliver BBQ Baked Beans (OMG these were amazing) and the Chickpea Stew with Cous Cous. Needless to say, I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking with it!
Throughout the week I noticed that I was most definitely less bloated, my recent stomach pains/cramps had mostly stopped and I felt quite content with my meals. I didn’t miss the meat and, when I had my first bite of meat this weekend, I didn’t have some beautiful moment of epiphanous rapture. I was simply eating.
So what next? Are we vegetarians now?
No, we aren’t. BUT we are planning for the majority of our meals each week to be vegetarian. Tonight? We’re having a veggie meal. And there are 3 other veggie meals also lined up this week. I think that’s a pretty healthy balance for us for now. That’s not to say that down the line I wouldn’t go veggie… I would definitely give it some serious thought.
