Going Meat Free on Mondays

Gaithersburg, Md

Editorial by:  Alex Stavitsky-Zeineddin

Today is the first day that my family and I are consciously not eating meat on a Monday.  I packed my boys mushroom pizza slices in their lunch boxes along with a yogurt, tangerine and fruit rollup. I plan to eat a butternut squash soup I made for lunch and then cook a Spanish omelette for all of us for dinner tonight.

My boys reminded me today that it is Meatless Monday, so they are on board too. I just left a message on my husband’s cell to remind him not to eat meat today too.

Vegan food coach Caroline Cherry provided an African Stew recipe today and Denise Clark, a friend and excellent cook, shared a Confetti-Stuffed Buritto recipe.  They are listed under Recipes on the right margin of this website.

Please let me know if you too tried to eat meat free today and what you cooked. Please share any vegetarian recipes by emailing me at founder@greengaithersburg.com.  I will post your recipes next Monday.
