Meatless Monday Continues


Happy Monday everyone!!  Today is a Meatless Monday and I can’t wait to try this next Cooking Light recipe.  Will and I try to eat clean & healthy for the majority of the work week and then splurge on the weekends.  Well……..the past couple of months we have been splurging more and  eating healthy less.  I would say we eat vegetarian 2-3 times during the week and Will loves his “Meatless Mondays”.  We both have found that eating healthy on Monday helps us start our week out and we tend to be more conscious of what decisions we make the rest of the week. I am so excited that we are using tomatoes and zucchini from our garden and if you have any home grown veggies you need to use up then feel free to throw them in!
