28 days Crave Veggies (Day 3)
26 March 2014
Time for a Food Change
For the next 28 days I will be turning to a vegetarian diet to help myself become a healthier and ‘feel better’ me – I’ve called this my 28 Days Crave Veggies Challenge. Before the challenge, I had been feeling sluggish and thought this challenge would be just the boost my body needed, I was also concerned that too many of my meals, whether it was eating out or at home, revolved around meat and I wanted to find out was meat really necessary? This challenge (I hope) will be a fantastic food experience of discovering new satisfying (new) meals packed with vegetables, whole grains and more. I’ve kicked the ‘habit’ of eating meat and giving the veggies a chance to take centre stage for a whole month – wish me luck!
Vegetarianism kicked off the morning with the best of 3 London worlds; cuppa Fernandez & Wells Coffee, a Vital Ingredient meat-free breakfast roll & bought some nakd raw food bars.
A lunchtime run to Pret for a quick ‘pick me up’ drink and snacks. Lovely @PinkLittleBean’s mum (Jane) also nipped down to London and it was great to catch up over coffee and Nordic cinnamon rolls. Delicious!
Dinner this evening included a delicious Quorn Chicken & Leek pie served with creamy (combo) potato & sweet potato mash and onion gravy. This tasted delicious, and mashed sweet potatoes made the perfect side dish. Versatile and a great source of protein, quorn is a blank canvas and proves that there’s no need for meat when it comes to cooking.

It’s not so much about the label ‘vegetarian’ as it is about challenging myself to be more conscious of what I eat and how it impacts me physically. I’ll keep you updated daily on this blog and twitter on what I’m eating and how I’m progressing during the challenge. Bring on Day 4 – thanks for reading :) – Cindz
