This week I am proud to say that Darrick and I gave up meat for a week (starting slow). I had this idea to try the Daniel Fast after seeing someones picture on Instagram. I talked to Darrick about it and he thought it would be good idea as well. Sunday we prepped for our fast that we were going to start this week, but once we got in the store and realized everything we would be giving up we decided to start slow and just go without the meat in our diet for a week. We are doing pretty good, I have cooked everyday this week so I am done for the week because we have plenty of left overs…
- Monday: Spaghetti with Sauce, Black Beans, Corn, Mushrooms, and Zucchini
- Tuesday: Sweet Potato Fries and Panko Covered Asparagus (All Baked)
- Wednesday: Sweet Potato Fries (only because I grabbed the wrong thing at the store) and Veggie Burgers…I also made a small casserole of Veggie Crumbles (like ground meat but its meatless), mixed vegetables, potatoes, and cream of mushroom soup
- Thursday and Friday: I’m not cooking because we have a lot of leftovers, and Friday I usually pick dinner up
This week I cooked basic stuff, next week I plan to try to work with Eggplant, and a few more recipes. I know this week we had a lot of potatoes so they wont be in next weeks menu. My plan is to be more creative next week with my menu and have us try a few things that we don’t eat on a normal basis! I don’t think this is a permanent plan for Darrick and I, it was really to kick start us to eating healthier. However, I have realized that it gives us more options for us during the week. And instead of cooking meals that all have meat in them I can switch up with some meatless meals!
