Meatless Monday menu 8-23-10

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 8:46 am

Because of the BIG BLOG CHANGES that are coming next month, I’m moving our food discussions to Mondays.

Which brings me to my question of the day: Do you participate in Meatless Mondays?

It’s a nationwide trend to cut down on our consumption of meat.

Our household usually does go meatless on Monday. Not because of the trend, but because if we do eat meat, it tends to be on the weekend. As a general rule, we try to go meatless every other day and we only have red meat once every week or two.

For dinner tonight we’ll be having either eggs or a tuna melt.

For lunch we’re having a Quinoa and Chickpea salad

which is similar to this recipe…although I use shallots instead of garlic, lime juice instead of lemon, I don’t add the extra salt, I use roasted almonds, and it’s being served over mixed greens…and I don’t measure anything and I added a handful of chopped stringbeans to the mix. Yeah, just like that.

Okay, your turn. What meatless meal will you be eating this week?



  1. We don’t do Meatless Mondays but there’s usually a day, sometimes two, during the week where we don’t eat meat at all. But it’s usually not planned, it just happens.

  2. So awesome – we have quinoa and no idea what to do with it. Now I do. Thank you! I used to do meatless almost every day, but I don’t eat healthy proteins outside of meat, so I kinda have to or I feel yucky. We’re going organic, though, and we buy cafe-free eggs. For me it’s about the care and treatment of the animals.

  3. Jenny — But what kind of meatless meals do you eat?

    Joann — Quinoa is an excellent source of protein (which is why I started eating it). Oh, and I am QUEEN of the typos so pls know I’m not making fun of you, but I’ve got to tell you that “cafe”-free eggs had me imagining chickens locked out of a cafe….

    • LMAO – that is one awesome typo. I’m quite proud of it, actually.

  4. We love Chinese food and we’ll often get an order of stir-fry veggies with veggie spring rolls and veggie fried rice. We also eat a lot of sushi.
    Ladies: What, there is no such thing as cafe-free eggs? I was just about to google it… I thought I was missing out… 😉
