So Steve and I went vegetarian this summer.
shhh don't tell my Dad...or my Grandfather
I may be disowned.
we did it because Steve wanted to lose some muscle mass before his triathlon
his biceps were just too huge
we figured if we cut down the protein in our diet...he could cut down his muscle
something about being more aerodynamic....or something.
To be honest, I was a little worried
I'm a home grown, cattle ranchers daughter, meat and potatoes kind of gal
this was going to get tricky.
but I have to say...it was much easier than I thought it'd be
and I actually kind of liked it!
Quinoa and Greek yogurt were basically my best friends.
oh yes, and lots and lots and lots of fresh salads.
like this one:
mixed greens, baby bell peppers, mini heirloom tomatoes, gala apples, avocados, blackberries, honey goat cheese, with a homemade honey balsamic vinaigrette.
I wasn't super strict. I may or may not have had a burger...or two.
but for the most part, I was good
and it helped me get even more creative in the kitchen this summer!
P.S...picture overload from yesterday with my Mom and sisters. I'll update soon!
