I guess vegetarian cooking inspires me!

Today is day 1 of my week without meat. One of the reasons is that I'm just plain tired of chicken! I don't generally eat read meat so I'm basically cutting out chicken and fish. In the past my body has responded positively to meatless days so I'm going to try it for a week and see how I feel. This won't be a long-term change but it could be a good jumpstart for my metabolism.
One of the benefits today is that I was inspired to put together the beautiful meal that's pictured above. I made a spicy black bean and quinoa burger from scratch, topped it with cheddar cheese and also made a Srirachi mayonnaise sauce. The sides are baked sweet potato chips and grilled asparagus. My total meal was under 450 calories and I feel great!
Did anyone else have an inspired meal today?
