For those observing Lent and practicing abstinence, today is the first no-meat Friday. And to that, I’d say right on! Not that I’m religious or anything, but anytime I can cut down on meat consumption, especially red meat, I’m on board.
I’ve been trying to introduce more plant-based meals to my family and myself, and I have to say everyone is cooperative so far. We still eat meat, obviously, but I’ve been able to reduce the portion by offering more plant-based sides.
Dare I say, we’re actually starting to prefer eating this way.
So for dinner tonight I’ll be making Tuna Poke Bowl, similar to the one below but with even more vegetable options for toppings. I think I’ll add marinated tofu cubes and shelled edamame beans to the lineup.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?!
I hope the husband will not turn his nose up at the tofu and edamame. He’s the most resistant to non-meat proteins. The last time I made veggie burgers, he ruefully observed that they would have tasted even better if ground beef and/or bacon were added. That man!
Now let’s look at these:
“I love the look of this black rice and beans! And you can’t go wrong with rice and beans – they’re comforting, filling, and nutritious.” — Angie
“There is nothing, a slice of sweet pie can’t solve.” – Jhuls
“This Sataras is perfect for a weekend brunch. So much better than your regular plain scrambled eggs! Such a pretty name for a dish, too.” — Angie
“I love this low-carb meal – filling and satisfying.” — Jhuls

Thanks again for hosting. IT’s a pleasure to be here.
You’re welcome. So happy to see you here again! XO
Hi, Angie; getting more vegetables in our meals is exciting, and you are right, after a while it becomes a preference. Thank you for hosting another great party and also for featuring my Yucatan Style Black Beans with Pork; this week I am sharing #30 Chocolate Covered Corn Flakes. Have a wonderful week!
You’re welcome. I’ve bought dried black beans so I can try your black bean recipe. I normally use can beans but maybe that’s why the rice doesn’t get as dark.
I truly appreciate you for taking the time each week to host this wonderful party!
I brought BAKED SOUTHWEST PORK CHOPS, HOT CHOCOLATE SOUFFLES and PINEAPPLE RAISIN DESSERT TAMALES with ORANGE BLUEBERRY JAM. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.
You’re welcome. It’s my pleasure! XO
