What a full meatless monday looks like

Standard

Happy Meatless Monday everyone.  I wanted to walk you through my meatless monday last week as a good example of what you can do to plan out your day so you are not eating meat for one whole day a week.

Breakfast:

first start by cutting up some veggies (every thing is better with some color).  This is yellow and red bell pepper, green onions, and a couple of pickled mushrooms that I got from the farmers market.

Then add some good fresh eggs to the pan with a little coconut oil so they don’t stick and vuala.  You have a protein packed, nutrient packed breakfast without meat (or wheat).

Lunch:

I stopped by Paradise Bakery and got one of their new broth bowls.  This is lentils, quinoa, spinach, kale, red peppers, and topped with a hard boiled egg and lemon slice.

Dinner:

Guess what more veggies! I had dinner with a few friends and it came out amazing.  We did three different dishes: Quinoa salad, sautéed broccolini, and Stir fry veggies (onions, squash, and kale).  This is my plate about half way through (forgot to take a picture at the beginning..oops)

Notice the size of the plate, its the size of a salad plate.  The bigger the plate the more food you tend to put on it.  You can put the same amount of food on a big plate and your brain tell you that it is not enough food.  If you use a small plate it will satisfy your brain and your belly without getting way to much food or calories.
