I never did understand people's obsession with having meat in every meal. Drives me nuts. A lot of my friends are Orthodox Christians and they have to go through Lent every year being really strict about what they eat - not quantity but food types. No meat, no dairy, limits on oil and fish and stuff. But boy do they find good recipes!

I've been vegetarian in the past. My brother and his wife and daughter are vegetarians now and I just enjoy eating this way mostly. However, I find that I do want to include meat still, so I guess I want the best of both worlds. Always looking for good vegetarian dishes though!

Energy and persistence conquer all things.

I agree it is so cool to learn more about what we eat (and all the hidden surprises within).

Nuts/seeds are good. Also just learned that there are like 15-17 grams of protein in greek yogurt...who knew?

I signed up to this team because, well, I eat just about anything - so can't call myself a veggie! - but actually seldom eat meat. I believe that it isn't good to eat too much animal produce, for all that I love it in moderation, and am convinced of the health benefits that come with temporary abstinence. Since signing up to SP I am struggling to meet the recommended protein intakes, despite getting much more protein than usual, so I figured looking at your posts might give me some ideas for how to manage that. One thing I have noticed, though, since tracking food, is that there is as much protein in a slice of wholemeal bread as in a sausage. Trop cool! I never knew that before :).
