I'm hoping to do some cooking tomorrow, something I haven't had the energy for in a while. I am still grappling with some kale from my Freshbox, so I thought I would try a tomato pie made with kale pesto and lots of cheese. Recipe here. The recipe is from a site that promotes "healthy" recipes, but it seems to have genuinely good stuff rather than just being about calorie counting.

I also have a fuckton of carrots, so I am planning to make a few batches of curried carrot soup for lunches.

Just as I was making all these plans, of course, I was hit with a sucker-punch of indigestion (why now? I haven't had any of my usual trigger foods all week) so I'm not sure if I am going to get to actually do all of this. We shall see.

As you can probably tell from the above recipes, I have been eating less meat lately. I tend to go through phases where I really crave it and phases where I don't, and right now I'm in the midst of the latter. I'm guaranteed to get a pretty solid dose of animal flesh once a week at my mum's, and I usually like to have a burger during my time of the month (I tend to get low iron) but right now I'm not really feelin' it apart from that. It probably also has to do with the weather warming up--my body doesn't feel like it needs to eat so much anymore.

(Lest you think I am in danger of being seduced by the Diet Monster, I am at this moment scarfing down a giant bag of peanut butter M & Ms. ;))

I think it's the season. I tend to crave meat less in the spring and summer too. Also, eating less meat and more plants is good for you and also delicious! Diet Monsters are no match for the Doughnut Monster.

Thanks for the recipe - I had a farmer's market trip planned today, and tomatoes were already on my list, so I added kale to it as well and am excited to whip this up, hopefully tomorrow!
