I realize I never really addressed this on this blog, just on my freewebs page, but for Lent, I decided to give up all meat, with the exception of fish. I am not a very religious person, but I have toyed with the idea of going vegetarian for some time. A lot of the meals that I eat are vegetarian as it, and I usually only have meat at most once a day, and usually less frequently than that. So, I’d been thinking for a while that giving up meat for Lent could be a great test to see if I can do it and how it makes me feel. I had a super indulgent weekend before Lent began, so I actually began a week ago today (one day early). I have to say I am feeling really good and think I should be able to stick with this pretty easily for at least the full 40 days. I am excited because it’s going to force me to venture out a bit more with dinners with my boyfriend, because he has a little bit higher demand for “meat like” things than I do. I’ve made Spicy Lentil Tacos before which he loves, but I want to take advantage of this time to try some new recipes and get some new staples into my diet. I am not sure exactly where this will lead, and whether I will go back to eating meat once Lent is done, but I’m enjoying it for now!

Eats for today so far:

Fage 0% greek yogurt, an XL Toasted Almond coffee from Dunkin Donuts with skim milk, and a banana. I love yogurt for breakfast and prefer greek to regular, but this is my first time having the Fage because I found it yesterday on sale at the grocery store. I must say, it was goooooood. Plus I knocked 4 of my GHG’s out because I have my multivitamin with water after eating breakfast! 😉
