We hope you’re not tired of hearing about wellness in the new year, because we’ve got our last Meatless Monday recipe coming at you today (check out the first two here and here). You can’t say you never wake up on a Monday morning, after a weekend of debauchery, and say to yourself, “This week, I’m living on green juice and blueberries.” Of course, if you’re anything like us, the resolution lasts until about lunchtime, and then you’re back to your old devices. That’s why we teamed up with Gardein for a realistic goal for the first three Mondays of January; simply making them meatless. Gardein is the brand that dishes up meaty meals and snacks made simply from plants. With taste and texture that makes even us carnivores think we were still eating meat, Gardein has made us converts.
Don’t worry, us potato-heads are here to help. Up today are a personal favorite of ours – fish(less) tacos. Because what better way is there to deal with a huge snowstorm than to pretend you’re on a beach somewhere? Yeah, that’s what we thought.
