Snow White announced last week that she had decided to become a vegetarian. After the initial SHOCK wore off, I realized that she was serious, and that it was my job to ensure that she still continued to get all of the protein and vitamins that she needed. I'm still not sure how the spawn of two happy carnivores ended up a vegetarian, but I'm determined to make it work...for her sake.
As a result of this epiphany, I have been focusing more on using fresh veggies, peanut butter, eggs and beans of all varieties in my cooking. For dinner the other night, I fixed a delicious brown and wild rice dish with diced tomatoes, black beans, feta cheese, lime juice and cilantro. It was AMAZING, AND healthy! Of course, CB and I had baked chicken with ours. We ALL had a fresh spinach salad:) YUM!
It's true that little changes add up to big results, and I think my whole family will benefit from this slight shift in eating. CB and I will continue to eat our beloved chicken and fish, but perhaps the veggies will begin to take up more space on our plates.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, LADIES!!
