Since I am not a vegetarian, but trying to give it a shot for a few weeks, adding eggs sound like a good source of protein. That was a worry for me, thinking where I would get some protein, but thought some fish would be ok if I had to, tho my daughter wants to add chicken, then it would not be vegetarian, but at least I would not be having beef at all for several weeks and several meals with no meat at all.

This post isn't so much "recipes" as it is food ideas, ok?
- sauteed cabbage (put onions, peppers and carrot in it too) - baked potatoes with veggie toppers - sauteed onions & mushrooms, steamed broccoli. - baked sweet potatoes. - a pot of bean stew, good veggie stock brown some onions, peppers and garlic, also saute some celery and maybe add a can of tomatoes. I make a pot every 10 days and serve it over rice and like a soup/stew. DH loves his beans. Also make a pot of lentils with lots of stock veggies and try some new spices. - bean/lentil burgers. There are a lot of easy recipes on line. - try a red lentil and sweetpotato dish. We love them together. - remember, breakfast can be a good dinner too! omelets w/lots of veggies, whole grain pancakes with fruit. The occasional evening oatmeal is very satisfying.
OK, that's it for now. Hope it helps.

I am trying an experiment for the next 3 weeks, I am eating vegetarian, so I need some recipes. Easy to fix and no soy or tofu please. Just simple stuff, tonight I am fixing a stir fry in the wok serving over brown rice, so today is taken care of as I has a nice salad for lunch and will have a all veggie soup for tomorrow for lunch, but well I can not do stir fry every night for 3 weeks.
