Meat-less Monday Revisited
Although it has nothing to do with art, I want to share my family's new change in eating to help get us back on the healthy track. After all... healthy body = more energy to make art!
Today I am re-starting a family money-saving and health-conscious dinner plan - Meat-less Monday.
Meat-less because we are using less meat or no meat at all. In a house of mostly carnivores this is a change for the better for at least one day a week. Meat is expensive and very calorific. Especially ground beef which is one of the meat that get the most action in our house.
Tonight's dinner will be Stuffed Red Peppers, with at least half of the ground beef replaced by vegetarian crumbles. I change the rice to instant brown rice and use tomato sauce instead of soup. I am also going to add some shredded yellow squash to the mixture for a little extra healthiness and color.
Here is a recipe from Allrecipes which is similar to my own. Just make the substitutions and you are on your way to a healthier body and a thicker wallet!
Your Turn: Got any recipes or healthy secrets to share? Post them! I need some encouragement to make healthy changes. How about you?
To your health! ~ Jaime
