It has been a practice among Roman Catholics to abstain from eating meat every Friday during lent, and the entire holy week. It is not recommended to eat pork, chicken, beef and other types of meat during this time of the year.
However, you can always consume vegetables and seafood. Since lent is a time to reflect and focus on spiritual health, let me help you a bit by suggesting some dishes that you can prepare for this week so that you can concentrate on more important things.
The original article suggests 12 dishes; I added 8 more dishes and provided the links for the recipes, for your convenience.
May you find inner peace and be able to reflect on your relationship with our creator.
Here are the (12 + 8 more) Filipino food that can help nourish your body for this season:
Steamed Fish or steamed lapu-lapu (grouper) is one of my favorites because it is tasty and the dish does not taste too fishy at all. It might be because of all the citrus blend that was added. It is simple and good!
Here are the additional 8 that I hand-picked for you:
Have a blessed lent!
