After reading "Goop," Gwyneth Paltrows' blog the other day, I got thinking and decided that my family would follow Sir Paul McCartney's lead, and stay away from meat on Mondays. For more information pop over to Goop for a short explanation, and a few recipes.
Here in the United States there is "Meatless Monday," and if you visit their site there are more recipes to be had. One step at a time...if we each make one little change in our lives it can make a huge impact, not to mention the health benefits.
SO! On the menu at my house tonight...I will put away that nice organic chicken for tomorrow, and am going to open a can of Trader Joe's Cuban Style black beans...saute up some garlic and onion, and add it in for extra flavour. Grate some sharp cheddar cheese, heat some tortillas and make bean burritos! I'll top them with some shredded cabbage, fresh salsa and avocado.
And there you go...relatively pain free (thanks Trader Joes...these beans are the best!), delicious and meat free. I am going to be researching some more creative meatless recipes for next Monday...
