After watching Food, Inc. a couple of times (a must-see!), we decided to change a few things about the way we shop for/cook/prepare food for my family. First, we started purchasing grass-fed and organic meat; and to curb the cost we simply cut our intake in half. For example, if a recipe called for 1.5 pounds of meat, I added just 3/4 pound. As a result, our grocery bill stayed the same, and our meals tasted better. Second, I added a couple of vegetarian meals to our weekly menu. It took me awhile to find recipes that were delicious and hearty, even without meat, but I finally have a little collection of vegetarian recipes that I really enjoy.
Today I am sharing my recommendations over at the Zupas blog. Feel free to pass along your own vegetarian meal ideas. I'd love to hear them!
