I hope I don’t step on any hooves when I say this, but it’s been suggested that one way to reduce the wear and tear on our planet is to eat less meat. The reasoning is that the amount of land, grain, water, and other resources to produce one hamburger is huge. We can alleviate that usage by reducing our consumption of meat.
Now, we are some of the biggest carnivores I know and my freezer has regularly stored a side of beef over the years, so please don’t read this as a militant command to go vegan. It’s not.
(Please pass the tri-tip.)
But, what I am saying is that it is okay to reduce meat in our diets. It is, certainly, a more frugal way to go. Some nutritionists would say it’s a healthier way to go. And our green friends would suggest that it’s gentler on our environment.
So this week’s Ultimate Recipe Swap will feature Meatless Main Dishes. Come on Thursday and share a favorite menu that does not contain meat. (Dairy and eggs are allowed.) Read the URS Guidelines here.
Sorry, friends, no dessert, no breads. Another time.
