Easy Ways to Go Meatless Monday!

Filed in Boomer, Important Stuff!, Our Planet, Reviews! by on May 1, 2016 18 Comments

It isn’t that difficult to go without meat, at least a day or two a week. I’ve gone from being vegetarian to eating meat/fish/chicken only 2 or 3 times a week. When I do eat meat, I try to eat grass fed, cageless, no antibiotics, no steroids, sustainable. We cannot always be perfect, but we can try!

There are plenty of places online to get vegetarian recipes, but I do want to share with you a few ways to painlessly not eat meat!

Yum yum yum! I love it!

One of my favorite meals is spaghetti with meat sauce. I make it with a meat substitute, and my favorite is Beyond Meat. This brand is somewhat new to me, but what I have tried, I have loved! Meat from plants is a great way to get your protein, and I agree with their Mission Statement: “We believe there is a better way to feed the planet. Our mission is to create mass-market solutions that perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein. We are dedicated to improving human health, positively impacting climate change, conserving natural resources and respecting animal welfare. At Beyond Meat, we want to make the world a better place and we’re starting one delicious meal at a time.” Find a store that stocks it near you!

I also am a fan of Morningstar Farms. They make all kind of meat substitutes, and the Good Guide, which rates products 1-10 on Health, Environment and Society (how the company treats employees), gives MorningStar a good score. They have all kinds of substitutes, including burgers. You can buy MorningStar in almost any grocery store.

  1. I love taking a break from meat at least once a week. One of my all time favorite things is Soyrizo from Trader Joes, the spice is so good and when added to eggs, makes a great Sunday brunch!

    I hadn’t heard of Beyond Meat, thanks for the tip. 😀

  2. I will usually go meatless for breakfast and lunch but have some type of protein in the evening. It’s not always easy when you live with a meathead.

  3. Well, as I was reading your post, I was eating a leftover piece of steak! I don’t mind meatless meals – as long as the flavor is good. I have not tried these meat substitutes though. Will have to take a look at them.

  4. I often go meatless several times a week. I’ve never tried the meat substitutes before, but they do look rather appetizing. I can think of a different recipes that would be perfect for the “Beyond Beef” in the beginning. I’ll be on the lookout.

    I am not a vegetarian but I do not eat meat very often. I make vegetarian meals several times a week.

  6. It’s funny – I don’t eat meat, and because of that, meat substitutes don’t appeal to me since they try to take on the taste of meat…know what I mean?

    My daughter is a devoted vegetarian and has been for years now. She brings lots of goodies at home for us to try. I like Morning Star and we eat that brand a lot. We hardly eat meat these days…well..maybe once or twice a week mainly chicken. Thanks for sharing this. I’ll have to check out Beyond Beef too.

    More and more I have been making meatless meals. I am interested in tasting your meatless suggestions. Thanks for the information.

      You bet! Of course, don’t eat a steak one day and a meatless burger the next, it won’t taste as good. Don’t eat red meat for a few days then try it!

    I’m vegan so meatless meals are my norm. My daughter is vegetarian. Not eating meat is good for us and the environment. thanks for sharing this info!
