Minimizing Meat

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I just started the Whole30 and we're very excited! One concern I have is that the challenge calls for eating a lot of meat proteins including beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish. I would eventually like to build a diet that reduces the amount of animal meat I consume in a week. If I reduce the animal proteins in my diet, how can I still get the protein I need without eating lentils, beans, and so on? I'd be willing to still eat wild fish but no shellfish. I'd also still eat beef and chicken a few days ago but what do I do on those other days?

Eggs are really the only non-meat protein that's completely Whole30 compliant. If you can, we'd recommend doing 30 days with totally compliant options -- eggs, meat, fish -- and then you can do careful reintroductions and see how you do with legumes or dairy so that you can then figure out what works for you for the rest of your life.
