Today was Day ONE of "No Meat for 30 Days".
I grew up on an all Angus cattle ranch in Kansas. We basically had steak for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have never had a great relationship with meat though. Everytime I would eat any form of meat I would feel completely tired and heavy. I'm also not a fan of the taste (beef, pork, lamb or chicken) of most meats. So, I finally decided to take a month off and say "NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!" to meat.
I am hoping to shape new habits and uncover exciting vegeatarian recipes. More than anything else, I am looking forward to healthy digestion and sounder sleep. All of my hopes and dreams might not be answered within this time frame...but hey! Letta girl dream. ;)
Tonight I drooled over Pesto Pita Pizza.

Today I completely organized all of the holiday decorations into color coded tubs so I needed something quick and easy to fix for dinner. This was defintely it.
Pesto ALWAYS rules, but when you mix in fresh veggies it is super YUM!
