Some Carnivores ♥ Meatless Mondays

Sometimes it’s an uphill battle to expand my family’s idea of what healthy eating looks like. My husband and four sons are adamant in their contention that there are but two food groups: meat and potatoes. Three if you include baked goods. Four if you include ice cream. Several years ago I got some recipes from a local Weight Watchers group and instituted Meatless Mondays. Some groaning ensued, but I found two staple recipes that my family enjoys any day of the week. However, I’m not sure my youngest son, Sam, 14, grasps the concept. When I asked him what his favorite meatless meal is he replied, “Pepperoni Pizza Pasta.” “Pepperoni is meat,” I explained. He scratched his head and offered another choice, “Chicken and Rice!” It seems I still have some work cut out for me, but since many folks give up meat during the Lenten season, I thought now would be the perfect time to share the two recipes that have received an unqualified thumbs up from the Hval clan: Linguine & Fresh Tomatoes and My Best Potato Soup/Cindy Hval, SR. More here.

Question: How often do you eat meat?
