How often do you eat meat a week?
One of the first things I noticed when I came to the US is that American's tend to eat meat with every meal. We only eat it 2-3x a week for dinner, and pretty much 1-2x a week for breakfast or lunch, examples for me and my toddlers (Hubby is usually the same but he might make him self something else) breakfast: steel cut oats, w/ a little 100% maple syrup, and brown sugar cinnamon, a piece of toast w/ peanut butter, lunch: grilled cheese, tomato soup, and dinner: cobb salad w/ some hard boiled eggs for added protein, veggie and rice noodles with some tofu and stir fry veggies on top, (liquid aminos, healthy version of soy sauce), and dairy and flour brownies for desert,,, this was what we ate today. Whats your favorite veggie recipes? Do you or your husband feel they need meat everyday to feel full?
We like a simple tossed salad, sweet potatoes and cinnamon or cabbage salad for veggie dishes.
I think we would say we feel fuller when meat is a part of our meal, at least for the most part.
