My wonderful, beautiful daughter (age 9) saw something about the way slaughter animals are treated and decided to go 'Veggie'. Now, she will still eat dairy and fish (for the time being).
Actually, this happened 13 months ago. I told her that I respected her beliefs and would support her. But I just thought it was a passing phase ~ she was only 8 after all. Well, I've been feeding her exactly what we get and just taking out the meat and adding a nut patty. I've given her some protein shakes and all my kids get vitamins.
So the other day, she says to me that she is concerned that she isn't getting enough protein in her diet. Honestly, I really didn't think she would be this committed and I have to respect that.
Can someone recommend some good cookbooks? My husband is a dedicated carnivore, does anyone else have a 'blended' family? Does anyone have any tips about making that work?
PS - I'm a working mom, so I can't spend hours making dinner.
Thanks a TON!!
