No meat, please.

Hi all! So, on Thanksgiving day, I spent a few hours in the emergency room where I presented for chest and neck pain. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing serious. My dilemma is, since that day, I have not wanted to eat a single bite of beef, chicken, or turkey. I will eat seafood with no hesitation but the thought of eating anything else makes my mouth water in a not so flattering way.

In case you’re wondering if it was something I ate on that day, the answer is no. I, actually, had not eaten anything that day except a chocolate almond milk, peanut butter and banana smoothie (delicious). The night before, however, we did go to Wendy’s. Normally, I get the grilled chicken asiago sandwich but that night I opted for the crispy chicken. I don’t know if that was the cause but I will never eat it again. I am emotionally scarred.

Since I have no way of knowing if this will be a permanent way of life for me, I am seeking ideas. If anyone has any tried and true recipes that I can take a shot at, please feel free to share. For the record, I have tried and love the spicy black bean burgers and chik’n patties and nuggets for quick fixes but that doesn’t compare to actual meals. I made a vegetable lasagna that the kids loved but trying to get my husband to eat anything with spinach is like trying to get the 41st president to eat broccoli…won’t happen, cap’n. The face he made looked like one a baby would make when fed pureed peas after giving him a taste of pureed banana.

So, yeah, any recommendations that will trick the picky palates in my home would be greatly appreciated.
