Skinny Love – Who needs meat? Me!

skinny love blue heartI’m about half way through my month of no meat and so far I have not succumbed to temptation but it’s hard. Mostly hard to remember ‘not’ to eat meat, especially this weekend where I have had a few meals out at restaurants and I automatically go to the meat dishes first and then I’m like ‘oh, no meat for me!’ and then I choose something else. Unfortunately some of those choices have not necessarily been the most health conscious and I need to empower myself to order meals how I want them – example, last night I had a fish meal – the fish was crumbed and grilled so it was fairly healthy but it also came with fries, tartare sauce, and a salad. To make it the healthiest I could I should have asked for no fries or tartare and asked for a side of grilled tomatoes and an egg. I guess this is all part of the learning process.

However, just because I am not eating meat does not mean there has been no meat in the house as Mr 8 is a meat eater and I can tell you cooking him his dinner has been hard! The smell is so delicious and I can’t wait to tuck into a good ol’ steak at the end of the month, but in the meantime I am down 2.8kgs for the first two weeks however I’m not sure I can contribute that directly to the no meat as I am also VLCD again to bust through this plateau I am on.

Next recipe make over is next weekend and I think it’s going to be one of Nigella’s. I’m doing some research now and will no doubt make myself very hungry lol.

Enjoy your Sunday!

I'd love to hear your thoughts
