Menu Plan Monday Vegetarian/Flexitarian Edition
It’s been a bit of a crazy month around our house, with one toddler birthday and a host of health issues for me, we’ve being doing things a bit differently. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 20 years, but I’m in a bit of a dilemna now due to my health. Maybe some of you long-time vegetarians can help me out. I’m thinking about changing our family (currently a blended eater family with me, a vegetarian, and my omnivore husband and our two undecided kids–one who leans toward veg and the other toward meaty) to a flexitarian family. All that basically means is that, instead of doing all vegetarian meals at home, we’d be mostly vegetarian with a bit of meat now and then (currently the meat-eaters only eat meat when we eat outside the house). It would certainly make mealtime a lot easier for everyone, but I’m not sure I can make myself do it.
I’ve always been a vegetarian more because I don’t like meat than for any philosophical reasons, but I’ve always considered those “bonus reasons” to being a vegetarian. So, it’d be hard for me to commit to a flexitarian lifestyle. But, with anemia and other concerns, I’m wondering if it may be best for my health to, ahem, suck it up. :) For now, we’re still, mostly, vegetarian, at home. But that may change in the near future. Any other flexitarians out there? What are your thoughts?
