I am not a vegetarian.Filet mignon cooked medium rare is my dream dinner. But, a few years ago, I started learning about the environmental impact of meat production and decided our family needed to do its part to reduce that negative impact on the earth. When I made the goal to "eat less meat," I admit I felt intimidated. I was venturing into new territory and wasn't sure how well I could stick to the goal. In the end I discovered that cutting back on meat was actually easy! Our family never felt like we were "missing" anything because we were able to still enjoy meat by using it in a more thoughtful and resourceful way. Here are the things our family did to make our "eat less meat" journey doable and enjoyable!
