My Meatless Monday

I am not a vegetarian by any means.  I do prefer vegetarian foods, and after a long-winded “kick” of cooking my own chicken my senior year of college, I don’t like to make it myself (turkey burgers being the only exception).  I have always been intrigued however, by the concept of Meatless Monday.  I knew it was a “thing,” but little did I know it was a movement!  I browsed the website for a bit, and I want to check out more later, but I found it to be very interesting and a very good resource for recipes.

I was disappointed to discover that fish was not included on the Meatless Monday menu.  Before I could give myself a pat on the back for participating today unintentionally, the salmon that I had for dinner sadly does not fit the bill.  I read and acknowledged their reasoning, but part of me still considers myMonday meatless (or pescatarian to be exact).


OO with 1/3 c oats, 1/2 c coconut milk, 1 T chia, 1/2 mashed banana, cinnamon, blueberries, almond butter blob, and rest of the banana sliced


Green salad with tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, cukes, Ellwood’s sun-dried tomato lentil burger, goat cheese, O&V


Salmon (marinated in this dressing), sautéed spinach with EVOO and garlic powder, baked sweet potato

and a glass of wine for good luck!

OK, that might only apply to birthday candles, but I need some luck in my life, so why not…?

Workouts of the day:

  • 60 minute walk this morning as it started to rain (#dedication)
  • Barre class this evening

Was your Monday Meatless??



  1. Yey, I am so excited to have won the giveaway, thanks for hosting it!

    I have no desire to go veg either but I could easily be pescatartian just because I love seafood so much! Growing up on the coast of Fl there were so many days where I realised I ate seafood three meals a day without meaning to!

  2. […] I specifically asked for vegetarian fare, which contrasts to my non-vegetarian disclosure from yesterday.  But the more I thought about ordering turkey, ham, or what have you, I found it to be […]

  3. […] My Meatless Monday if I do say so […]
