A few years back I set myself a challenge – going Vegan for 12 months. I wanted to see how well I could discipline my body and curve my cravings.
I’m back on the wagon...the vegetarian wagon that is! I got a little lazy, busy and my head was so full of what I had to get done that I didn’t have time to consider what I was filling my fridge or pantry with and too often I would just grab what I had and cook. It was healthy but not always meat free.
Quite possibly many people have grown up with meat being the foundation of their meals and just a little bit of greenery on the side.
For some it may have been bangers with mash and maybe a serve of beans or peas; for others it could have been roast lamb, lots of potatoes and a little broccoli. And as I write this, I can hear my son in laws cheering for the concept of consuming lots of meat morning, noon and night!
