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.

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.
