Trying to be meatless and low carb!
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
My hubz is going animal protein free fr 6 weeks per Dr's orders. Ok not really a big deal since I have done this before. The trick is getting him to eat the things he needs too. My vegetable stir fry over brown rice got a smirk and a "You're trying to starve me" comment.
I have no problem replacing meat protein with nuts, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and eggs. He just isn't content with that.
So I spent a good portion of yesterday looking for recipes without meat (we don't eat fish or seafood either). I was able to come up with a lot of pasta dishes and bean dishes. The next task is using these recipes is switching him to an all wheat mentality.
I have to keep reminding him that it's always easier to be bad vs being good. And since we're both not wimps or quitters we can face the good!
