So I wasn't as good as I had hoped at the whole not eating meat thing. We had the twins birthday party on Sat and we had a cold cut platter and I had a ham sandwich. Not too bad you might say, except I also had bacon and shepard's pie on Sunday. The only good thing is that these were food items I had in the house so if I didn't eat them, I probably would have thrown them out and that would have been wasteful. I am planning on keeping my resolve to not really eat meat. I have little to no desire to eat any type of meat on a regular basis. I will have to eat some things with meat though, because I have a family that likes to eat meat. We will continue to eat less meat and more beans, and if possible, eat meat that is treated in a humane safe and healthy way.
