If you turn on the TV these days (which I do) you may have noticed all of the news about meat and its awkward pink slime phase, not to mention the latest sticky treat, meat glue, which isn’t really a treat, but something that meatpacking companies have developed (and never mentioned) to help otherwise unusable cuts of meat hold a specific shape. The kids love it.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a preachy post trying to talk you into being a vegetarian. I haven’t even talked my own kids into being vegetarians. This is America (or another country with access to the Internet), and you are free to eat whatever, or in this case, whomever, you like. However, in light of all the gross meat-related news out there I thought you might enjoy some meatless options to tide you over until your stomach settles.
The following vegetarian meal and snack ideas are so tasty (or fun) that even the biggest veg-haters will enjoy them. Actual kids may vary.
Most of the above photos were found on Pinterest. We still have Pinterest invites if you are interested!
