Meatless Monday (and Tuesday…)

verduelria4I have become a little turned off meat from the meat obsession here in Argentina, even though I was already eating very little meat, just a small piece here and there. On Friday I finished two meatless weeks, had some steak, and started again yesterday. I have the benefit of spending six days a week in a hotel that happens to have a long-term guest eating almost all plant-based, whole foods, so that means I have easy access to lentils stews and the like. So I will try to do another two weeks, and see how it goes! I have also  been trying to cut down on sugar, mainly in the form of choclate. To me, that is much harder than not eating meat!

Since early January I have been obsessed with avocado and tomato sandwiches on whole-grain bread, so that is my new staple breakfast. I think that for me, eating rich flavors like avocado, caramelized vegetables in the oven, and lentil stews make it easy to cut down or out meat, cheese etc. I am sure I will be back to eating some meat, and chocolate, but the chocolate I could definitely benefit from leaving for Saturday only (growing up in Norway, all candy was strictly for Saturday evening only.) Wish me luck!
