I think I may give up meat for a while; since I’ve completely missed the boat on lent, it would seem my efforts are in the name of, well, giving up meat. Not quite as much fanfare but still a worthwhile cause.
Although there are many who give up meat, and claim to be healthier for it; I know, and have known, many a vegetarian or vegan who was far from it. There are a whole host of unhealthy foods that have not one animal product in them.
Legumes are an excellent way to offer variety to a vegetarian diet; and they offer a great deal when it comes to satiety. Simply put, they fill you up and have the ability to taste great! Lentils are one of my favorite legumes, as they find themselves well placed in so many meals; from brownies, yes brownies, to curries, lentils are an incredibly dexterous kitchen staple.
