Cutting back on meat, is it for you?

During the summer when it's super hot I tend to not eat a lot of meat; I'm not sure what the reason is, but I prefer salads, vegetables and fruit. I stumbled upon a post from GOOD Magazine talking about their goal for the month of June, 'go vegetarian for the month'. I know I'll never be able to do that, as a kid my nickname was carnivore, but sometimes cutting back on meat can be a good thing. Here are a few of my favorite meatless meals and sides.

Please check out the other recipes on my site under fish, dinners and seafood,  I cook with a lot of fish and shrimp.
