In fact, if you're not on a diet of some kind, you might be the anomaly.
Here's a question for you. What do you know about eating meatless meals? Aside from the health benefits offered by a vegetarian or meatless diet, going meatless for one or more meals a week might even save you money.
Where to find out more information? Check out Meatless All Day by Dina Cheney.
This beautifully rendered and illustrated (with color photographs so realistic you'll want to reach right into the picture and pluck out the produce or finished product to taste yourself!) cookbook is also a comprehensive guide on eating more meatless meals.
In addition to mouthwatering recipes for every meal from breakfast to dinner (supper) and in between, you'll find expert wisdom, tips, recommendations, and resources, as well as encouraging and easy-to-follow directives on cooking basics like how to scramble eggs, what roasting actually means, and how to play with meat-like flavors and textures in your otherwise meatless offerings.
And let me be the first to reassure you that going meatless for a meal or two, or more, each week doesn't mean starvation. Far from it, in fact. For breakfast, pick from egg dishes packed with vegetables, sweet or savory pancakes, scones, and more. For lunch, think salads with delicious combinations of unexpected ingredients, while dinner could be anything from pasta to meatless meatloaf (yes, it's possible!).
If you'd like to try your hand at the meatless diet, whether full-time or just once or twice a week, pick up a copy of Meatless All Day for user-friendly recipes and an author whose voice of experience will set you immediately at ease.
