From hot-mess to homemaker

Meatless Meal Prep Monday

I have noticed lately that there has been a increase in the amount of people who have started to embrace a meatless diet, specifically in the black and brown community. A good friend of gave up meat (except fish) earlier this year for health reasons. We give her hell for it at times, but I started looking into the benefits of it, and long term, it’s actually a good thing more than likely. I decided to try it for a week to see how I like it and if I will maybe continue it, or at least cut down on the amount of meat I consume. My love  of bacon and ham runs deep, and they are considered the worst for you, but I feel like I could give up the rest without much fuss.

Meatless Week Rules

  1. No chicken,beef or pork
  2. Eggs and Fish are ok
  3. No cheating
  4. No calorie counting

I wanted to give myself some wiggle room. This past weekend I went to my favorite local farmers market, as well as Sprouts to stock up on food for the week. We meal prepped last night and here’s what I came up with. I am also planning on monitoring how I feel this week as well as my weight to see if I notice any differences.

Meal 1: My Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe and 2 eggs

Meal 2: Smoked Salmon Bagel with capers and cream cheese

Meal 3: Indian Saag Aloo, curry Potatoes Brown Rice, and Roti Bread

Meal 4: Chili with beans and lentils and green beans

Wish me luck! This is new for me, so I am taking it one step at a time!
