Eastern Right Catholics always begin their First Day of The Great Lent on Monday, rather than Wednesday.

The Roman Catholics have until Ash Wednesday, for The Great Lent to begin.

This period of 40 days, ending on Easter Sunday, calls for an increased spiritual awareness, humbleness, and meatless meals on Fridays, and optional on Wednesdays.

Those who love meat in their daily diets, might find it challenging to prepare meatless meals, even if it’s only once or twice per week.

Have no fear, Suburbangrandma is here to offer TWENTY FIVE meatless meals suggestions, plus a link to another post with few more…such as Avocado Egg Salad, Gluten Free Varenyky, Zucchini and Goat Cheese Fritter...etc.

    Thanks for the list of meatless dishes.. I did observe the dairy less and meatless day on Monday.. A great day for reflection for me.. my day start with black coffee which I quickly switched to tea as I am a latte coffee drinker! then the rest of the day of fast was not a hardship, sushi for lunch then Fish Taco for supper, garlicky coleslaw with a spicy guacamole was a great topped for the fish!
