Hola world - and veggie lovers (meat lovers, it’s ok, you’re people too).
Life has been so busy, food blogging has somehow fallen by the way side:(
I have continued to eat veggies (plant based) almost exclusively - with a weekly relaxation of the diet as it were. I am 6 days on, 1 day off - on the day off, just making best decisions. And what they say is true, meat, dairy, etc loses it’s appeal - I find myself eating less and less on my off time - but I think it’s important to give myself an out from the strictures - just so I can live feeling normal whilst dining with others on rare occasion if there aren’t any veggie options on the menu. But let’s face it - there usually are options, and for certain relatively healthy ones, if not purely veggie - like fish or egg whites. Dairy is actually easier to avoid than you might think.
I have tried to keep taking snapshots of food as I concoct new things - although there have been a couple in the last couple weeks I have missed - that’s ok, I’ll be making them again soon I am sure - and eventually I’ll get around to posting my fave new recipes - in the advent that you see something here that looks yummy - shoot me an email and I’ll scribble up a recipes;)
I have lost about 6 pounds on the year - nothing massive but progress with out doing anything dramatic lifestyle wise - I really need to develop an exercise regime tho;)
Anywho - onto the food… Here’s some images from the yumminess in veggie food over the last month -

…and that’s it for now. I did just make a delish veggie pesto macaroni casserole - that had kale, spinach & basil - so tons of greens, almond meal, hazel nut milk and just a little veggie margarine and nutritional yeast, and vegan cheese - blended up, with then some soy sausage sauteed with sundried tomatoes in red wine, brocolini, with brown rice elbows, topped with a sprinkling of crushed calamtta olives and panko bread crumbs - it was yummy - but I forgot to take a picture! Until later - hopefully will get to blogging a few of these pics as featured recipes soon!
