Time for a change

17 December 2012


I know that most people will start making New Years resolutions soon. I never make any of those. I try to make goals every day/week/month. So here's the start of one of my new goals/adventures...

I have been changing my eating habits these last few weeks. So this week I decided to try to not eat any meat. I knew this would be hard because there is no way that my husband is going to eat no meat with me. He's a carnivore! So therefore I will still have to buy meat and cook meat for him.

I decided to purchase some BOCA and Morning Star meatless items. They are soy based and have a meat like texture and taste but there's no meat in it at all. They tasted pretty good to me. I had some ribs, chicken nuggets, chicken fingers and hamburgers. All of these items were meatless. lol. My husband had the real meat while i ate the imitation meats.

The meatless meals made me feel a little hungry when I was done eating them the first few days. After Day three I'm assuming my body had adjusted to this no meat thing. I started to feel full when I was done with my meals.

Here's an example of what I would eat for lunch:
BOCA Meatless Chicken Nuggets (I had a small amount of sweet and sour sauce with these)
Sweet Potato Fries
Serving of Fruit(banana or strawberries)

I plan to review some of the foods that I ate. I will probably post my reviews on Tuesday and Wednesday. I also plan to upload a Youtube video on all the items that I have incorporated in my meal plan for this week.

  5. Hi Leisure,
    I love Boca products. They are great, but I am like you: My husband is a meat-and-potatoes guy. He could eat it 7 days a week. My oldest daughter claimed just before Thanksgiving that she doesn't want to eat meat. She's 3. He was having no part of that. It does feel better when you cut down on red meat. Good luck.
    Thank you for linking up to the Thumping Thursdays blog hop.
