I ATE Meat Today


So WHY!! do you ask that I am blogging about this? Because I dislike meat very much and this is a big deal to me. But my dislike for meat isn't because I'm anal about dead animals, (although, seeing a dead dear hanging in my garage waiting to be gutted and cut up does nothing to whet my appetite!) nor am I a vegetarian, or anything like that! I simply don't like it!! My dear husband is on me all the time to take in more animal fat through meats and not just cottage cheese and eggs which is where I get my animal protein from. So to prove to him that I did indeed have my months supply of meat I snapped a photo of it to show him. He has been out of town all week until this Saturday so he misses the opportunity to pat himself on the back for his perseverance!! If I could "talk" to him I'd tell him, but he is way up north by the Canadian borders on a high adventure with Aaron and there is no phone reception. I was missing him so I thought I would do something nice for him. That's why I ate meat!!

I stir fried small bits of organic beef with garlic, onions, mushrooms, and red pepper in olive oil. I added a bit of sea salt and served it with homemade whole wheat tortillas. It wasn't half bad. So now I can say that I have my fix for a few months!!

I went for a time without eating meat. Now I just fill my plate with salad or veggies and have a smidgen of meat. We both know that a smidgen is all your gonna get in a big family anyway!

Good for you. I too don't like meat much. But I do eat it once in a while.

I don't think I've heard of anyone who doesn't like meat. Either they choose not to eat it for dietary reasons or animal rights....but to not like it? You are the first for me.

Now, I can definitely enjoy me some steak, ribs, grilled is best.... yummmmmmy! Ha ha.. :)

I don't eat much meat, I prefer fruit and vegetables. I wonder, sometimes, if I'm getting enough protein. In the summer, though, a good grilled steak tastes good to me, has to be medium rare.

Sounds tasty to me! I'm glad you ate your meat. You do need your protein!
