I've had to be quite creative sometimes when planning meals. I've fallen in LOVE with quinoa. This amazing grain, dubbed a super food by experts, is super high in protein and is quite filling. Through this whole adventure I think that has been the hardest part: finding enough things to eat to keep me full. Couscous is another great option for a hearty grain with great nutritional value.
At the beginning of my veggie summer it was really, really hard. I had to be super conscious of what I was eating, especially when going out to eat. Buuut, I've liked it so much that I'm making it permanent--with a few adjustments. Meat is good and I need to make sure I'm getting enough protein. So it's more of a flexitarian diet, as a friend called it.
flexitarian (n)- someone who rarely consumes meat
I'm thinking once a week. That's how I did it this summer and I feel great! I have so much energy, my skin looks better, and my fridge is filled with color fruits and veggies :) It's like a mini farmers' market in my fridge.
