The weather here in Michigan was absolutely gorgeous this past weekend, with both Saturday and Sunday playing host to mid-70’s temperatures and sunny skies. In honor of such beautiful weather, I decided to try my hand at making a cool, refreshing drink. So I decided to search out a recipe for Sangria and give it a shot, and came across a recipe for Peach Pineapple Sangria on AllRecipes.com. And since this is the first time I’ve ever made a Sangria, it makes a great addition (and new recipe category) for my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Meat-Free May

Posted by Anthony on May 1, 2015 in Tidbits

While I’m presently working on my 50 in 15 Challenge, I decided to give myself another challenge and devote one month of the year to being a Vegetarian — a challenge I’m calling “Meat-Free May”. This challenge isn’t for any specific health or dietary reasons, but rather so I can gain a better understanding of a Vegetarian diet. One big part of this challenge is also to become more aware of hidden and/or otherwise nebulous ingredients that aren’t Vegetarian, like gelatin and rennet.

During my “Meat-Free May” challenge, I’m planning on taking it a step further and going Vegan for a span of one week. I think this will be a much more difficult challenge, thus why I’m only going to do it for a week.

In the end, I think I’ll have a much better understanding and appreciation for both Vegetarian and Vegan diets. And I also have a sneaking suspicion that I’ll be able to add a few Vegetarian/Vegan recipes to my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Here’s to a challenging and meat-free month of May!
