Veggie Month-Week 2

Well friends, we’ve made it through another week! We had one obstacle this week but I’m proud to say we overcame it! We had a wedding to attend on Saturday night and had chosen our meals prior to deciding to do veggie month. We tried to get our orders changed to vegetarian but it was too close to the date of the wedding. It would have been easy to just ignore the challenge and eat the meat we ordered, but instead we planned ahead and made a delicious vegetarian curry to eat at home before we left for the wedding. Then we just ate our salads, rolls and vegetable sides at dinner, along with some candy from the candy bar :)

We also went to the Farmer’s Market with my in-laws this weekend and stocked up on delicious produce!

So what have we been eating this week?

Thursday: Black Bean Veggie Burgers with Grilled Potatoes

Friday: Happy Hour dinner- Margarita Pizza and Parmesan Risotto Balls

Saturday: Veggie Curry with Potatoes and Green Beans (I made the sauce pretty much the same way as the Bean & Mushroom Curry but with an extra scoop of red curry paste)

Sunday: Black Bean and Mushroom Enchiladas with Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup and Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Monday: Salsa Omelets and roasted poatatoes (The salsa had corn, black beans, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno and avocado in it- perfect omelet fillings if you ask me! Hubby is the expert omelet maker and he made one giant one for us to share. He added a leftover black bean burger and brown rice, and some fresh mozz as well!)

Tuesday: Asian Style Wheatberries (It was just as good as the last time I made it!)

Wednesday: Another curry! We just can’t get enough :) This one had tomatoes, potatoes, green peppers and onions. Hubby made the sauce a little thicker by adding less broth and a bit a cream cheese!

 And for lunch:

Quesadillas with black bean burgers, hummus & veggies
Egg & veggie scrambles with wheat toast
Buckwheat crepes with greek yogurt and fresh fruit
Buckwheat bread with peanut butter

Some things I’m thinking about for next week:

Barley & Veggie Soup
Pesto & Veggie Grilled Cheese
Veggie Pot Pies
Another tofu experiment! Any suggestions?

We’ll see what happens! What’s the best veggie dish you’ve eaten this week?!

  5. Though I’m a meat eater myself (mostly chicken and bacon – ha!), I really admire you and your husband for doing this challenge…in fact, it has inspired me to eat less meat. I am trying to get only one serving per day if I can manage it. After I finish up my large containers of sliced turkey from Costco, I plan to do a “no deli meat” policy after that and go from there to slowly cut back. Would love to read about how going veg has made you feel physically!

    • thank you!!! i’m so excited to hear about your challenge to yourself!! i can’t wait to hear how it goes for you. i’m planning a post at the end about how i’m feeling but so far i feel like in general i have more energy!

  6. Wow, these are some great meatless ideas! You are really on top of keeping it all interesting :) I think that’s the only way to stick to something.

  7. Good for you for not cheating!! I’m impressed. My boyfriend totally would have gone for the meat. But I also don’t think I could get him to go veg for a month :)

  8. I love the sounds of a pesto grilled cheese :) And nice job on the wedding improv meal. I need to remember tricks like this at holiday parties.

  9. Your pictures make your veggie-diet look so delicious! It’s always tough for me to figure out what I can eat and things like weddings and other catered events – and you did exactly what I do, eat a small meal before, and then snack on sides (& dessert) when I get there!
