I hadn’t given it any thought until I was going through my emails and saw the subject on one from Morningstar Farms (hey, wait a minute…do you think they have some kind of interest in making sure people eat vegetarian fare on Mondays?). As I thought about what I’d eaten over the course of the day I realized I’d had a meatless Monday without even trying.
My protein for the day consisted of peanut butter at breakfast, hummus for lunch and Swiss cheese for dinner…yes, yes, the fat content for the day was high (especially so when you consider I ate avocado with my Swiss cheese this evening), but I sure didn’t miss the meat. I’ve never been a huge meat-eater anyhow, so it’s not like going without meat is a struggle for me. I am eating more vegetarian meals though…and fewer fast food meals…can’t hurt, right?
On another note, I’ve still been doing that little push-up/sit-up challenge…nothing too difficult yet. I’m thinking I’m recovered enough from my cold that I may hop on the exercise bike or treadmill for a bit tomorrow (saw my doctor again today and got a guarded clean bill of health…still have a cough and temp was on the low side…hey, it’s cold here in Indiana, what can I say?). We’re also starting that fitness challenge (company wide) next Monday…the 10,000 steps a day challenge. The girls at work are getting excited about it…not sure if they’re more excited about getting fit or the prospect of winning prizes! It’ll be fun, whatever they’re excited about.
So…do you eat any vegetarian meals? What’s your favorite?
