Meat-free lent, week 1

We have successfully completed almost 2 weeks of our "no-meat" Lenten season. So far it has gone really well. We have found that some dishes are more filling than others; waking up hungry at 3 a.m. was a good reminder of that for me last week. Note to self: 1 1/2 eggs just doesn't add enough protein to a salad to keep me full all night.

The weather was really nice today, despite some pretty strong winds. As C and I went for an afternoon run we caught a few whiffs of grilling season starting up. Something tells me these people weren't grilling tofu and vegetables. I guess we'll keep our grill wrapped up for winter until after Lent is over.

Here's what we ate this past week!

Sunday: Baked Sweet Potato with leftover Vegan chili on top

Monday: Stir-Fry veggies with tofu and brown rice

Tuesday: Grilled avocado, provolone and pesto with tomato soup

Wednesday: Salad with hard-boiled egg

Thursday: Couscous with chickpeas, fennel, and citrus (recipe to come!)

Friday: Sauteed onions, peppers, fennel, and black beans over quinoa
