February is nearly upon us. Pink & red adorn our calendars. Hearts decorate the stores, and love is definitely in the air. Right now, I’m feeling the love, but I’ve really been feeling it toward our furry (and feathered/scaled/naked) companions.
It’s no secret that I love animals. The problem is, I love them out roaming forests of the wild, but I also love them on the grill. I know, I know… please don’t hate me.
In an effort to show animals some love, I’m going vegetarian for February. I will also try and limit my consumption of other animal products, but I’m mainly focusing on meat. I did this last February (before I began blogging), and it went so well that I have decided to do it again.
I’m not doing this for weight loss. (Though if a few pounds decided to fall off, it wouldn’t break my heart…) In fact, it will probably be even harder for me to not “carb-out.” It’s still going to require the same willpower to keep myself on-track.
Kevin said he’d participate as well, but if he’s out with the guys or at a work function, steak is definitely still on his menu. Isn’t he awesome? This gives me the freedom to cook as much quinoa, lentils, beans, and veggies as my little heart desires.
Last night, in an effort to rid the house of some tempting turkey meatballs, I made this spaghetti squash dinner:
Other news from yesterday, I hit the pool after some pilates in the morning. My joints would prefer that I swim more often. Today’s workout will be a 30-minute run and the full body routine I outlined last week.
- Seeing how it’s sort of the month of love, what are you loving this month?
