This is my first full week without meat and it feels good - I don't think I'm going to miss it that much. I still have some fish in the freezer (and some canned tuna) still to use up - but otherwise I am making progress being a veggie.

I stocked up on a lot of ready made 'meat free' dishes to help with the transition, but I'm hoping to phase those out. I don't think there's any real health gain using them. I did a huge batch cooking session last weekend to have soups, stews and curries on hand - and that has helped. I'm going to add in some chilli and veggie sausage casserole too (which will obviously contain TVPs, but still it's progress).

It's been fun reading all the books and the different blogs that are available. Post Punk Kitchen (http://www.theppk.com/), http://ohsheglows.com/ and http://fatfreevegan.com/ are all looking good to me.

But really I need to get in to green smoothies to start my day, I think.

I did without meat until last night when I made chicken Caesar salad for everyone. I didn't even realize it until I was about 2/3 through my meal. I'm not telling anyone in my family that I'm trying to go vegetarian right now. They just eat what I cook them. It's strange that I didn't even realize I was eating it. Duh! Maybe because I was so hungry and I was rushing around doing things.

I am slowly transitioning into being a vegetarian.
The less meats I eat the less I want them.

Hi R0B1ND,

Congratulations on your choice . I personally find it easier to plan out my meals ahead of time, it makes it much easier to stick to a plan. just my 2 cents worth.

have a great day

You're worth so much more

Here we go... Here's my official day 1 into my journey of vegetarianism! I'm starting off with a meatless Monday. Tomorrow is another day and I'll deal with it when it comes.
