So far, so good!
I haven’t even noticed that I didn’t eat meat the first half week. I even went out to an in prompto dinner with a group of people, and it was a breeze. The Hubs is doing well, too. He went out to lunch to a “mom n’ pop” pizza joint with coworkers and had veggie pizza, which he likes anyway. It does look like he’s going to have to travel this month for work, and he has little say in the meals since many of them are provided and he’ll be in a group. But I think that while he and I are home and making our own meals or eating out at places where we have choices, we are making a huge impact on our health and the environment, even though we eat meat one day a week.
Hopefully, we are playing a small part in paving the way for more choices and mainstream acceptance of eating less meat, since we’re “voting with our forks.” While, this challenge (experiment) is probably a little more of a committment than the average person would undertake, it wouldn’t hurt anyone to fill up their plates without using meat one meal a week.
