First, I've been eating some amazing foods and really enjoy the process so far - I'm on end of Day 18.
I just made a tomato based sauce with ground turkey to eat over spaghetti squash. The sauce wasn't very flavorful and the ground turkey had a really strong taste. My first question is - does ground turkey usually have a strong taste or was I eating bad ground turkey? Last time I made it, I don't remember it being so memorable....but, perhaps I wasn't paying attention. The sell by date isn't until 8/17 and I only bought it 3 days ago. It's been in my fridge since I bought it.
So, this was possibly the first dish I made on my whole30 that I didn't really enjoy. Normally, before Whole30, if I was making a tomato sauce I would not have added meat. I would have had it just with pasta and maybe a little cheese. When I was a little turned off by the meal I made I thought of this and started to feel a little tired of meat all together...
Does anyone take a break, even for just a meal, from eating animal protein? What other options are there? I haven't read about what vegetarians do on whole30, because I am not one, but what will happen if I have a vegetarian meal every now and then?
