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.
