Meatless Monday is back baby! It never actually went anywhere, I just kept forgetting to blog about it. In my quest to get healthy and lose a few pounds before my 20th anniversary trip in April, I have been testing out a plant based diet. I keep going back and forth on whether I want to include fish in my diet. I am thinking of limiting it to once or twice a month. While I decide, I am loving some of the vegetarian dishes I have made. For lunch yesterday I made a polenta pizza. . .a grilled slice of polenta topped with a slice of heirloom tomato, shredded mozzarella, garlic and basil.
This chili will knock your socks off. Not only is it healthy, it is a flavorful and spicy bowl of vegetables, beans, chiles, spices and wine. You can easily serve this to the die-hard meat eaters in your house, and it will be gobbled up.
This chili is also vegan, which means it contains no dairy products. If you are not into the vegan thing, feel free to top your bowl of chili with sour cream and sharp cheddar. The chili is quite spicy. As you see it has a jalapeño AND a chipotle chili. If you would like a more mild version, use half of the jalapeño with the seeds removed. Try not to cut back on the chipotle because it adds a deep, smoky flavor.

There are many ways to go about reducing your carbon footprint, but one of the easiest ways is to participate in Meatless Mondays.
Although forgoing meat also helps fight world hunger (and the issue of obesity), it's also proven to be kinder to Mother Earth, even if you're just skipping out on animal protein one day each week. To learn a few of the environmental benefits of going meat-free once a week, keep reading.
If there's one food that we dream of bathing in, it's probably hummus: the silky-smooth chickpea and tahini puree is one that seems apropos for any eating occasion, whether it's as a dip for vegetables or a vehicle for a warm sandwich. But let's be honest: this beige dip seems to appear everywhere in the same iterations, from roasted red pepper to sun-dried tomato. As much as we love it, we're ready for something new.
If you're on the same page about this, then look no further: we present you with five totally unconventional takes on hummus, from kabocha squash hummus to a lentil variety. Grab some pita chips and keep reading!

We really like where CheesePlease's head is at with this gourmet grilled cheese sandwich.
Grilled cheese with roasted red peppers, portobello mushrooms, and smoked Gouda. These ingredients taste amazing together! My advice — roast your own red peppers!
