Eating Lower on the Food Web

This month my Green Life Action has been to change my eating habits to reduce the amount of meat I consume. I've been following Veggie Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Directly depending on plants which transform the sun's energy into calories reduces the amount of resources you use. It has been easier than I thought. On a rainy day like today, a corn and roasted pepper soup with a salad is an easy and satisfying meal.

Dinners are harder. But now that my husband has committed himself to Veggie Tuesdays and Thursdays as well, meal planning has become a joint effort. Michael had a great idea and we are having roasted vegetables with tofu meatballs over pasta and stuffed mushrooms on the side.
