{be inspired} The Veggie Mama

I’ve been having some very interesting conversations in the staff common room at lunch lately.

Everyone marvels (and sometimes gags) at the foods I bring in for my lunch… which seems odd to me, because I don’t think I eat anything that strange.
After discussions about food,why I choose not to eat meat and how easy it is to do, I’ve been directing them to the Veggie Mama.

Stacey became a vegetarian at 26, makes “veggie dishes be so awesome nobody misses the meat” and is not sad to have “cut out an entire food group in my culinary adventures”.

A woman after my own heart, I’ve been perusing her recipes of late (current favourite – Roast Pumpkin and Haloumi Salad) and decided to inspire you today too.

With yumminess like Lemon Coconut Slice, Vegetarian Shepards Pie and Baby Beet & Feta Salad, there’s bound to be something to tickle your taste buds.

And like I’ve been telling everyone at school – going meat free is not going to turn you in to a crystal loving hippy.  In all seriousness, with just one meat free night a week you’ll be saving money, reducing your environmental impact and living a healthier life.

Are you inspired?

      Thanks for finding and sharing all those recipes Stacey! I’m determinedly making my way through them, depending on what the tastes buds are telling me I’m feeling like. And equally determinedly sharing them with non-veggie types 🙂
