It’s not necessary to be vegan or vegetarian to appreciate the health benefits and tastiness of the cuisines. Why not incorporate meatless meals into your menu from time to time? Here’s an idea: Designate Tuesdays and/or Thursdays as meatless meal nights (that’s what I do). It’s fun to come up with new dishes and it’s much more interesting than the same old routine. To kick things off, try Gail Roddy’s Vegan Mac and Cheese (pictured).
My husband usually joins me and loves it. But there are times when he prefers meat as usual and that’s when we each do our own thing in the kitchen. I don’t make a fuss about that. I’m setting a healthy example and over the last several years, he has adopted a number of good eating habits and is now a solid 50 pounds lighter. Yaay!
