Meatless May Recap

I know how into my blog you all are, so surely you remember that May was declared “Meatless May” ’round these parts.  I also know that you’ve been just dying to know how it went- right?

I’m happy to report it was a resounding success. Once we got over the idea of “depriving” ourselves, it was really, really good.   We didn’t feel like we were missing anything (really).  We got back into our habit of eating a lot of veggies and fruit and that is a really good thing. 

We all ate better and more balanced meals.  The girls don’t really like to eat meat- especially Birdy.  By paying more attention to alternate protien and balanced meals, I think they were actually better off than when they would just eat some fruit and bread for dinner. 

Suprise! Birdy loves corn on the cob!

The meals were no easier or harder to prepare- lots of veg prep that was traded for meat prep (thawing, trimming, etc).  We didn’t lose any weight (boo) but we didn’t really excersize more.

We liked it so much that we have decided to flip our eating habits- mostly veggie with meat about once a week (or when we go out).
