Welcome!

You don't have to go get "weird" ingredients to incorporate some more meatless meals into your lifestyle. Or to make meals with less meat. Most of the recipes people have shared in the recipe section here use pretty easy to find ingredients.

Canned and dried beans, eggs, and dairy products (cottage cheese is particularly high in protein) are all very common ingredients that any small town store should have that can form the basis of a wide range of vegetarian meals. Or meals that still include some meat, but less - like changing up a chili recipe to have less meat and more beans.

I've lost about 35lbs and gone from slightly over "obese" by BMI to just into "healthy"!

And I can now run for over 5k!

#1 rule about losing weight:
It's about making progress, not being perfect

Casandra emoticon I've only been 'flexitarian' for two wks and its wonderful discovering new foods and new tastes - have fun and experiment.

Maybe you could have a word with the local shops and see if they are able to stock what you need, we did this in our village and once it started, the sales became so popular, we now have our own organic health food shop!

No quitting, No Excuses.
Just RESULTS

Hello, everyone! I am so glad I found this group! I am so new at trying to eat and cook less meat! I live in a very small town, and even finding ingredients to cook with at home is difficult.If anyone has any tips or suggestions, please let me know!
