meat-free/man-free wk5

February 14, 2011

Another meat free week. Considering how little groceries I had in my buggie I was shocked when it totalled $30. But over the years I have noticed groceries going up and up with no end in sight. Oh and after this past weekend of Valetine Dating, pizza date with the parents, and Mom and I making Pioneer Woman Sliders with fried onions and potato logs....don't think I have had no meat what-so-ever. I eat a bit on the weekends, but week days are totally meat free.

Now for what I am eating this week.

Whole wheat toast w/ pumpkin butter
Odwalla Chocolate Protein Shake

String cheese
apples w/ caramel sauce (70 cal per serving)
dried apricots
Flan (I had a calorie splurge issue)

Pasta Salad- carrots, red bell pepper, green onion, corn, peas,(sauce) ranch packet, 6 oz nonfat greek yogurt, 2 oz fat free mayo, whole wheat pasta
**yes I know mayo has egg in it...but you really can't get completely away from the mayo taste without missing something in pasta salad.

Raisin Bran w/ Almond Milk
Boca "Chicken" Sandwich w/ baked sweet potato fries

After eating a 1/4lb of cracklings again this weekend it became very apparent that I could never be more than a week day vegetarian. However, today for lunch I ate an entire Kashi vegetarian pizza all by my lonesome...but I didn't eat breakfast so that explains the hunger. Oh & I think I should clarify...if it doesn't have a face I will eat it during the week. Eggs in my flan and mayo mean nothing to me since I don't eat much of them. I am basically just cutting out animals that had legs. To date I've lost about 6 lbs just by cutting out meat 5 days a week.
