Pescatarian January – The Final Week

That’s almost it, a whole month of not eating meat.

Overall, I’ve enjoyed the month, it’s been challenging at times but I’m happy with the experiment. I’ve definitely eaten a lot more fish than I normally would but I’ll be honest, I don’t think it’s changed my view on meat in the longer term and I will continue to eat it once February rolls around. That said, I’ll make sure I cut down on the amount of meat I eat and want to start incorporating at least one vegetarian and one fish based meal into my week to help redress the balance. It’s been an interesting experiment though and one I’d be happy to repeat again in the future!

This week is looking extremely busy and it’s going to be really hard to stay healthy! Last week we failed at almost every point to stick to the meal plan. Wednesday we ended up running late home and had cheese on toast for dinner and this weekend we ended up going for a curry with friends.


We have a meeting at 7:30pm which makes it difficult to fit a healthy dinner in. I made some vegetable soup last night so we’ll eat that with crusty bread before we head out to the meeting. 


We’re booked in at The Swan in Mountsorrel for their Bistro night – it’s Korean so of course Dave is super excited. I’ve reviewed them before – read it here.  The menu looks great – what do you think?

I’ve got an urge for jacket potatoes – they are a faff because they take so long but sometimes you just can’t beat them – I think I’ll probably go simple too – just beans and cheese. What is your favourite topping?


I’ve got the day off work! Not for any particular reason other than I fancy it. I’m planning to spend the day blogging and cooking! Bliss… Dinner will probably be something in the slow cooker or maybe a vegetarian lasagna! Here’s one I made earlier  -I’ll replace the meat with lots of veggies! 



Most likely leftovers of whatever I make on Thursday. The other half is away so I’m looking forward to a n early night in front of the TV with my cats and a bottle of wine (Bridget Jones eat your heart out).



I’m off to the Olive Branch in Clapham with Matt from Great Food Club on Saturday which’ll be really lovely and a proper treat. Other than that, I’ll be eating healthily and giving my house a big spring clean. I feel a feng shui style clear out coming on!

Sunday – I’m having a break from cooking so maybe dinner at my Dad’s. I quite fancy a bowl of his awesome curry and bombay potatoes. I’ll start dropping hints now!

For the final time this month, I’ve joined with Mrs M’s Meal Planning link up. Go and have a look for more inspiration for your weeks meals.

    Lovely plan – and that Korean menu sounds amazing. For me, beans and cheese is the ultimate j-pot topping, although I love tuna as well. I prefer to think that I'm classic rather than boring! x

    Lovely plan, I've never eaten Korean food before… I hope it proves to be a good menu! 🙂
