It’s recently hit me just how expensive meat is. At the grocery store, it’s pretty much the highest individual cost item we buy (aside from ice cream bars 😉 ). And you don’t have to finish a Michael Pollan book to hear the horror stories about how it’s produced. Meatless Mondays is an interesting campaign and I’d like to try it for a little while, to get a feel for how difficult it is to go vegetarian in America. We keep hearing about how it’s getting easier and there are so many recipes out there… but it’d be interesting to actually cook vegetarian for a bit.
