I started as a flexitarian but liked my vegetarian meals so much I just stopped eating meat. Most of my meals have beans as the starting point, so I keep my crock pot running. Last night I had split peas. Yum!

I like the idea of going to the produce market and using what is available to make some instant meals. Great idea.

I've always liked everything produce.
Years ago I gave up all meat, chicken and fish. Did this for 9 years.
It was a slow transition which made it easy.
Since deciding to create a healthy lifestyle all meat products are getting less and less again.

Twice a month I make veggie stews and freeze portions. Yay for instant meals.
It starts with a trip to the produce market to see what is in season, fresh and cheap.
Then I will decide what combination to use.
This saves lots of money and produces surprisingly delicious inexpensive meals.

There isn't much conversation about dried peas and beans on SP.
Would like to see more.
I soak dried beans overnight, drain and sprout before cooking.
This increases their nutritional value and cooking is faster.

I am glad to find this team. I've been watching a number of videos about the health benefits of changing to a plant based diet. They were very convincing and so I started eating more veggie style the past couple of months. I haven't given up meat completely but might like to get to vegetarian in the future. I would like to limit the amount of meat I eat since when I eat it often, it upsets my stomach.

I'd also like to eat more veg style b/c my doctor suggested it some years ago for other health reasons. I definitely felt better eating that way so I'm working my way back to much less or no meat. For now though I'm a Flexi b/c I can't resist all of it just yet - don't know if I ever will. I might just become a Flexitarian for life. emoticon
