Meatless Mondays

I’ve become a vegetarian…on Mondays only. :-)  It’s not like I eat a HUGE amount of meat all the time, but Korean cuisine is definitely meat-centric.  And I’m not complaining, because the food is so good. 

I just figured that one day out of the week, I’d make sure and eat something that wasn’t chicken, pork, or beef.  So yeah, technically I’ve become a ‘pescatarian’ (meaning seafood is ok).

One caveat to my mission:

  • Lunch doesn’t count.  I don’t have any choice for my school lunch since I eat cafeteria food.  But school lunches usually have a very minimal amount of meat anyway.

I’ve been practicing Meatless Mondays for over two months now and it’s going great.  I actually find myself inadvertently going meatless on other days as well. 

And since we live so close to an open market, it’s very easy to pick up a good variety of fruits and veggies – and it’s soooo cheap.

I’ve done tofu stir fry, salads, seafood soups, rice dishes – it’s been pretty easy.  The one challenge is usually…MICAH.  See, this is MY thing…not his.  Micah loves his meat.  And he has absolutely no desire to partake in my one-day-a-week meat strike.  So, most of the time, he just cooks some meat on the side and then adds it into whatever the main meal is. 

One more caveat:

  • Vacations don’t count.  We’ll be heading out in about a month to Hong Kong, the Phillippines and Singapore – and one of the things I love most about traveling is eating all the different foods.
