So far…so good!

Well, how have I fared after 5 days as a vegetarian?  Pretty well actually. Have I craved any meat?  No, but I nearly grabbed a slice of ham by accident.  Not because of a craving, but because of sheer habit of what I have eaten for the past 40 years.  They say it takes at least 21 days to break a habit…we’ll see!

I don’t seem to have too much trouble finding alternatives for breakfast and lunch, but dinner is a different kettle of fish altogether.  Speaking of fish, I have agreed with myself that I will have fish once a week.  I have allowed myself this to start with so that I don’t fail this resolution altogether.

I tried black beans in a wrap tonight for the first time as an alternative to beef.  I have to say I didn’t really miss the beef, but as for falling in love with the beans, we may need to have a few more dates before I fully commit!

I have always enjoyed spinach and ricotta pastries, but I have never made any myself.  That will be my task tomorrow, so I’m anxious to see if they will become part of my new repertoire!
