Omnivore/Carnivore/Herbivore - what's for dinner?

Omnivore/Carnivore/Herbivore - what's for dinner?

I posted this for everyone and for the semi-vegetarians as well...those of us who might occasionally give into a s couple of slices of bacon or use real chicken broth in a soup, stuff like that.

I could borrow the line from food network and say meat on the side, but I'm not good at returning things so I usually don't borrow them.

I've never been an "all or nothing" sort of guy, so I can't actually define myself one way or the other, hence the title of the thread.

And...I'm out of dinner ideas too.

Nigel ......silly question what do have for us to work with.

Last nite I made smoked apple wood chicken breast w/ a mango salsa, smoked roasted veggies
( eggplant , baby bok choy & cauliflower) and garden fresh lemon cucumbers, sun sugar tomatos, bibb lettuce salad.

It was so good Nigel.

Today I don't know yet but I am making that kale dish w/ nutritional yeast. I'm a big foodie.

Umm, that sounds really good.

I use a lot of faux meats and cook them like the regular meat recipes.
Like faux chicken breasts, diced chicken, burgers, sausage, etc., so about any recipe will work for me--I'm adjustable. lol

Okay, I didn't think I would get a big response to this, but there are some people on here who eat very little meat...so...what's for lunch or breakfast or a snack then?

Today, I'm grilling...boca burger for me and real hamburger for the wife and she wants smashed sweet taters...I am having green beans as I haven't learned to like sweet taters as of yet.

Anyone else eating today?

Honey do weekend for me--fixing up the sewing room and the dog house...not my dog house..lol

Weellllllllllllll - since I'm a confirmed carnivore, I haven't really posted in your thread here, Nigel - BUT I will, because I'm doing an every other day potato hack, which means on alternate days, I eat - POTATOES! DH too. It's working nicely.

But on the UP days - I eat my MEAT!

I gave up on the soy products years ago - but I used to LOVE those Boca Burgers and TVP and the like. My sister is hypothyroid and it does seem to run in families, and there is evidence that soy can aggravate such conditions, so I just chose to avoid it from then on.

I was vegan for 21 years, and during that time we ate the most wonderful meals ever. I actually "reformed" when I was told by my naturopath nutritionist that all of the soy products I was eating (tempeh, tofu, miso) might actually be detrimental to my health as I had Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. Still, eating lots of beans, especially low glycemic ones like chana dal, will work for protein, and of course tons of high water, low starch vegetables will work. Although I eat chicken, fish, shellfish, and the occasional beef or port, I still love basing my diet on veggies and legumes!

Thanks everyone.

Charski, you can post your meat or even potato recipes if you want.
My wife eats everything, so I generally make 2 separate entrees, so all ideas/suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated by me.

Bummer about the soy.

I'd love any bean recipes. I pretty much make pinto beans a lot. I need to expand my horizons and try some other types of beans.

Sounds good. I could live on tomatoes and cucumbers straight from the garden. All I seem to get is cherry tomatoes from my plants, but I'm not complaining.
