Veggie Month-Week 4

We did it, friends! A successful veggie month. In the words of the hubby, “it flew by!” And it did!

So what did we eat during week 4? Hubby was out of town over the weekend so we had some different meals.

Thursday: Lentil & Veggie Pot Pies with puff pastry tops. So good! The veggies stood out more than the lentils to me and I loved the puff pastry top. I didn’t really follow a recipe but I did refer back to my last pot pie post for some guidance! (Hubby had Boca Burgers, veggies & veggie dip, blueberries and chips and salsa).

Friday: TJ naan topped with homemade hummus, scrambled eggs, black beans and avocado. (Hubby had a vegan Indian Buffet for lunch and veggie stir fry for dinner.)

Saturday: I made some pasta with veggies but just wasn’t feelin’ it…i ended up eating some hummus and chips, a smoothie and some cereal. (Hubby had a portabello and grilled cheese sandwich).

Sunday: Nachos with black beans, red & yellow peppers, corn, tomatoes, avocado and cheese.

Monday: Hubby made another delicious Chickpea Curry!

Tuesday: Black Bean Burgers and roasted sweet potatoes. I topped my burger with walnut butter and it was DELICIOUS!

Wednesday: Leftovers

For lunch:

Lots of leftovers. I made an extra pot pie to eat the next day and the batch of curry fed us for about 3 days! We also enjoyed fresh peaches and blackberries, smoothies and some watermelon & chickpea curry. Oh, and who could forget some wb &j with my new fav nut butter!

Don’t you love it when you have a really good dinner and there’s still enough left for lunch?!

The hubby says he’s not ready to stop the veggie lifestyle. We both feel good about eating more natural food, it’s saving us money on our grocery bill, our energy levels are high and we’re having fun with it! I plan to incorporate some fish back into our meals and continue eating eggs and drinking milk. We’ll take it one day at a time from now on and see where life takes us!

    i’m so impressedwith you and your hubby for going veggie for a whole month! brad’s getting a little better about eating meat-free meals, but every now and then he’ll say “hey love, don’t you think we could add some chicken to this”. ahhh.

  7. I’m totally interested to hear about your perspective on your “veggie” month – is it something that you’d consider for a semi-permanent lifestyle change? Over a year ago, I tried a vegetarian diet for a month, just to see if I could, and I enjoyed it so much I, I made a complete transition. That doesn’t mean that I never eat meat, just only when I really want it!

    • i’m not totally sure at this point! for now, we’re really enjoying it and are going to keep it up…but i can’t say for sure that we’ll never eat meat again. i like your approach of only eating it when you really want it!

  8. It’s so awesome that you guys are sticking with veggie!!! I feel so good on a vegan diet, plus I have some pretty strong convictions about why I do it. Your eats sound delish!
