For the next month I will be turning to a vegetarian diet to eat to help myself become a healthier and feel better me.
I’ve been feeling sluggish lately and think this is just the boost my body needs, plus I was concerned that too many of my meals revolved around meat – was it really necessary? This will be a new food experience that I’d like to take myself on to discover satisfying (new) meals packed with vegetables, whole grains and more. I’m kicking the ‘habit’ of eating meat and giving the veggies a chance to take centre stage for a whole month!

Huge bowl of ‘sunshine’ porridge made with soya milk, 1 whole fairtrade banana, cinnamon & swirled in natural honey.

Working lunch: fresh mozzarella with spinach, tomato & green pesto bagel. Juicy Mirabelle plums from Berwick Street Market – FOUR for a £1.00! Great fresh produce value again from the markets!

Stir-fried vegetables (beansprouts, onions and red peppers) served with fluffy boiled rice. Chinese style vegetable stir-fry, made with a soy sauce-based sauce is a quick and simple vegetarian and vegan stir-fry with a distinct Asian flavor. You could add tofu for good results and extra protein, and vary the vegetables as well. I love creating stir-fries with plenty of sauce, so that I can serve over rice or noodles. Delicious!

Misc Snacks
Weetabix cereal bar. Nakd raw food bar.

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 9 – thanks for reading :) – Cindz
