I respect the goal of eating vegetarian, for the sake of the planet, and for the sake of the animals. And I am truly glad to have a few vegetarian recipes in my repertoire.
When I first adopted this goal, we knew that something in my husband’s diet was not right. We thought that vegetarianism might help. Later on, we found out he has celiac disease, so it is wheat, barley, malt, and rye that he cannot eat. Eating meat or not eating meat is not relevant to his condition. So I’ve been feeling the lack of commitment to this goal for some time.
Another of my goals is reading Good Calories, Bad Calories. Reading this book has changed my opinion about eating meat.
So I am crossing this goal off of my list as an “I give up.” 3 years ago

I made falafel (Far East) pita’s with a side of tabouli. Hummus is a staple in our household, but didn’t make it to the table for this meal, though it could have fit in well. The Tabouli was also from a box, but I added lots of veggies, like cucumber, fresh parsley, chopped spinach, cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper and a small amount of feta. I also whipped up a yogurt condiment with garlic, chopped cucumber, dill and black pepper to top the falafel. I’m not into boxed meals, but we attempted making falafel from scratch several months ago and it was a big ordeal that turned out funky. However, I bought some bulgur wheat and from now on, will make my own Tabouli. Awesome meal, but had great pains convincing my son to eat it. 5 years ago

Last night: Butternut Squash and Pear Soup (recipe from The New Vegetarian Epicure) served with black bean and quinoa quesadillas. Everything was delicious! 7 years ago
I did two more over the weekend – a grilled onion and mushroom sandwich (yum!) with a sweet potato side and a black bean/avocado/tomato mixture in a pita (yuck!). 7 years ago
I cooked a vegetarian dinner yesterday. The main entree was good, the roasted vegetable side dish sucked. 7 years ago
The goal (for me) is to learn to cook ten good vegetarian meals in addition to the ones I can cook now. 7 years ago
