~Michelle Macari in St George UT~ Lifestyles of the fit and meatless! What is it that should trace the insuperable line?… The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? —Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832) A dead cow or sheep lying in the pasture is recognized as carrion. The same sort of carcass dressed and hung up in a butcher’s stall passes as food. —J. H. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUMUvYLC5iM White Phoenix
Good morning everyone! I am embarking on this journey again, trying to reach my fitness goals and maintain a healthy weight. What I'd like to try and incorporate into my diet is more fruit and vegetables and less meat. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love meat! The problem is I enjoy fatty meats such as fried fish and chicken, barbecue ribs, ham hocks to season my greens or string beans, and for breakfast...I can't think of anything better than sausage or bacon to go with my home fries. My plan is not to totally eliminate the foods that I enjoy, but to learn healthy alternatives and limit those less healthier selections.
I know that my children would be on board. My daughters ages 19, 10 and 8 are active in sports and do enjoy eating most vegetables. In fact, the only veggies to get the sour face are peas and asparagus. So, I don't think I will have a problem doing a meatless meal once or twice a week. Looking forward to interacting with you all and discovering/sharing some tasty recipes that will make truly make my veggies the star of the show more often.
