Healthy vegetarian meals

Welcome (back) to my blogspot! If you’ve been following my blogs you probably know I have recently started being a vegetarian. I must say I have been doing quite well and I have not had any cravings for the last month. I feel strong and healthy as usual. 🙂 So here are some of my favourite vegetarian meals:

  1. Vegetarian curry and rice with tomato soup and tea. I love curry and I make mine with 1/2 onion, 1 sweet potato, 1 carrot, some buttersquash and tomato sauce. I use a variety of spices, such as, medium curry, salt, pepper, paprika, ginger, parsley, garlic and thyme. I usually add greated cheese on top.  6tag_031116-212738
  2. Roasted sweet potato with cheese

  3. Vegetarian alternative (Quorn) gammon steaks with salad. To be honest I was dissapointed with the gammon ‘steaks’, however I highly recommend the Quorn mince meat alternative

  4. Vegetarian soup – basically add 1/2 onion, your favourite vegetables, your favourite spices, 1 vegetable stock cube and have it with some toast 🙂 Cures all colds, I tell you!

  5. Vegetarian burger – I love using a large flat mushroom which I fry in a pan without any cooking oil – just on its own. Then I put it between a bun with some tomato pesto or hummus, some feta cheese and some kale, wild rocket or lettuce. Perfectly healthy!9a6c16437740e3c41b7346788905226c.

10 things about me

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. My  dissertation has really taken over me and has consumed most of my social life. Additionally, recently I couldn’t find anything to vlog on or write about.

I have changed myself once again…this time I’m determined to stand my ground. I’ve decided to stop eating meat again. Becoming a vegetarian has always been something I wanted to do for the last 2.5 years but the only reason that failed me along the way was the social clash with my friends, family and husband. I didn’t want to upset them and cause them worries. However, this time I have firmly made my decision and can proudly say that I am vegetarian. I don’t want to share extensively the reasons why but mainly for the sake of the animals which suffer, the planet’s environment and even my own health.win_20160929_102732

So here are the 10 things you most likely don’t know about me:
