So how is a ‘foodie’ expected to survive during the season of Lent? Having given up meat myself, I have had to find interesting and creative ways to satisfy my appetite. Believe me; it’s not as hard as you think. Of course we all love the chicken, the beef and oh the ‘beloved swine’. However, for a short period, our bodies can enjoy a meatless diet that is fulfilling and fun!
How about tacos with veggie mince or perhaps pasta in a light tomato and parmesan sauce?…both sound good to me.
You see, going meatless for Lent may seem challenging at first, but with a little creativity and planning, I guarantee you won’t starve. In fact, maybe going meatless can become a lifestyle change – or not. But trust me when I say… there are waaaay too many recipes to keep your forty days and nights full of flavour.
Give it a try!
