Meatless Monday: Trying New Things

One of the main benefits of switching to a vegetarian and then plant-based diet has been the extra motivation to try new things. I have checked out books from the library to try new recipes.

I have a new appreciation for tofu, and I made my first tofu scramble on Saturday (recipe from Happy Herbivore). I made a big breakfast taco that reminded me of the ones at "Aguas" in San Antonio. I paired the tofu with salsa and some crock pot refried beans from 100 Days of Real Food. I did not eat scrambled eggs often, but I still wanted to try out this quick recipe.

I have been getting more active and am now tracking my steps with a Fitbit. I like the small size and being able to see my steps on the screen. My current goal is to take at least 200,000 steps by the end of March, and I aim for at least 10,000 steps a day. I am usually more active during the week since I help at Alex's school. I find it challenging to stay on track with both healthy eating and activity, but I will keep trying.

What new things have you been trying? Have a great week!
