Oh, I get so bummed when a recipe doesn't turn out.

I made this simple red cabbage slaw frugalhealthysimple.blogspot.com/201

that was a big hit with the family. And my DH's grilled veggies are always gobbled right up. :)

I made a summer pasta salad that has too little lime juice and a sweet potato salad that had too much lemon...hmmm...I didn't fare well. LOL Maybe I should mix one with the other today...

I love this idea. I have found that when we go to BBQs if we take things like veggie kabobs to grill so that I have so thing to eat (only vegan in group) we always have to make extra. If I don't they will disappear before it can eat. Most people will eat veggies like these if we make the available

Well, my take is that many aren't ready to jump all in at first. So, I like to welcome all, including those who are still in the investigation stage, or those who will never commit to all all veg diet but are eating less meat.

It's not about labels but about making the best choices for yourself - for some the environment is the top reason for plant based eating, for others it's health. And as you know animal welfare is a main reason for change, yet, realistically (and yes, to our chagrin), this just doesn't work for all. But I will gladly support anyone who would like to eat less meat on any scale.

Who knows, maybe those currently just going meatless on Monday are tomorrow's full on vegans.

EDIT:
Plus, holidays are a great time to make vegetarian versions of traditionally meat based dishes that may get newcomers to give it a whirl!

Hmmm, I'm not so sure about that. I agree about the learning part though but for me either you are or you aren't.

This is a Vegan / Vegetarian Forum. Why are we having a "Meatless" Challenge?

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and as the kick-off to Summer we often end up at BBQs, picnics, cookouts, potlucks.... I so look forward to it!

But I can really overdo it with a smorgasbord of foods right under my nose. So let's make a simple challenge for the weekend of making good food choices.

Some ideas:
- Make and bring a healthier option of a traditional dish
- Choose a vegetarian option over the meat version.
- Watch your portions.

Post here to let us know how it went. I'd especially love to see some recipes and/or photos of y'all having a great time and being healthy. :)

Have a great long weekend!
Heather
