It might have been a Monday, but meat was eaten. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without turkey, sausage meat stuffing, pigs in blankets – or in my case naked pigs as I don’t like bacon.
It’s not been the best kept secret that Christmas falls on a Monday this year, so I’ve had a few extra meat-free meals during December. I’ve decided this gave me a get out of jail free card to deploy on Christmas day. I’m not really sure this is how such a dietary choice should work but in the ethos of reducing protein content, I think I’m still net positive on this one.
I think I’ll continue with the Meat Free Monday trend into next year unless there are any other food fads you’d like me to try. Let me know in the comments and I’ll see if I can grant that as a Christmas wish!
