Eastern Rite 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 increased spiritual awareness, humbleness, and meatless meals on Fridays, and optional on Wednesdays.

Cooking meatless meals a few times per week might sound challenging for those who are used to cooking with meat most of the time, hence Suburbangrandma is here to offer TWENTY-FIVE meatless meal suggestions with pictures and links to the corresponding recipes.

PLUS,  this link to another post with additional meatless recipes with pictures……such as Avocado Egg Salad, Gluten-Free Varenyky, Zucchini with Goat Cheese Fritter...etc.
