Meatless Monday

 

This New York Times article gives a great tip for starting your “meatless” journey. Instead of making meat the star of your show/meal give it a supporting role. Start by altering your portions. Rather than buying thick porkchops try a skinnier cut or try a smaller portion of steak. Build your meal around side dishes; veggies, grains, beans salads or a fruit dessert.
