I am almost finished with my first week being Meatless in May. As far as eating goes, this week was easy. I planned out my meals as usual, bringing several meals to work, and enjoying the rest at home. I never felt deprived, or hungry, or tempted to slip. Perhaps it was because I was so focused on my nutrition final and a new project at work, but the transition seemed almost too smooth. And I had fun trying a few new recipes, like this Sunflower Seed Pate.
This coming week will be far more challenging. I am going to NYC on Saturday, my sister’s house on Sunday, and meeting friends for dinner on Wednesday. There will be plenty of vegetarian options wherever I go, but I expect it will be different when I am not in complete control of my meals. I’ll keep you posted!
