December Vegetarian Challenge – December 1st
Well it was the first day and I can’t say it was difficult.
Why, because we eat vegetarian at home all the time, so it was a matter of keeping that in mind as I go through my day.
The toughest part is at night. While we don’t keep meat in the house, nor do I cook meat in the house, there have been occasions where I’ve had deli meats around. But my big thing was/is keeping cans of chicken breast and tuna so I can whip up a protein laden chicken salad when it’s late and I’m hungry.
I made a very concerted effort exhaust my chicken supply and wouldn’t you know it, the growlie tummy wanted my chicken salad.
It wasn’t hard to resist, there’s no chicken, but I expect I’ll continue to have cravings and they’ll be satisfied with other things (that night, I had peanut butter and cream cheese on crackers instead of chicken salad).
We’ll see how this goes!
