Meat Free

I just realized I have been almost  meat free for about a month.  I have had chicken twice in the past 5 weeks.   The most recent during a work lunch when we got free lunch.  I am still eating cheese, fish, yogurt and eggs.  I made these choices to expand my diet.  I did not do this for any radical reasons.  In fact, I would still eat chicken occasionally.

Rather than chicken or turkey, I have beans.  We make a delicious bean dish filled with eggplant, zucchini, red pepper, chickpeas and kidney beans.  We then top it off with homemade tomato sauce.  I pair this either with pasta, rice or couscous and have a very filling meal.  I also tried to take a salad a few weeks in a row.  I topped this with quinoa.  Again it was great and filling.

I feel great.  I have no adverse affects to my running. 

Which food have you stopped eating completely or cut back a lot from your diet?
