28 Days Crave Veggies (Day 11)

Time for a Food Change
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 porridge made with soya milk, cinnamon & swirled in natural honey. Vital Ingredient Create Your Own breakfast bowl.
Marks and Spencer’s Rice and Lentil salad with Aubergine. White chocolate cookie and bottle of fruit smoothie.
1 very ripe banana.
Veggie comfort meal of fried onions, chunky sweet potatoes, peppers & mushrooms with lemongrass, chilli and coconut sauce served with boiled rice.
I also took up Yoga this morning – giving ot a try for the first time. Someone told me that Yoga is based on self-reform, self-control, and self-adjustment, and surprisingly I really enjoyed it! Finally, thank you Keith Donegan for my super stylish red water bottle – keeping hydrated in the summer, on the Tube & during my (new) workouts by drinking LOTS of water!!
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 12 – thanks for reading :) – Cindz
