This past week saw me knock yet another item down! Take that number 10!
I’ve always enjoyed a meat-free meal from time to time. There are so many ways to be creative with your veges and grains. What I’ve never actually done is tried to maintain a meat-free diet for a whole week, and hence the self-challenge pre-30. (For the record, I classify meat-free as no red meat, pork, chicken or seafood)
One of the highlights of the week was dinner at my uncle’s restaurant Harvest…
…tell me you don’t feel hungry after seeing these tasty morsels! Even Mr. DMD can vouch for the fact that a complete vegetarian meal is very tasty and filling…and who can complain when their sticky date pudding arrives with not 1 but 2 scoops of ice cream to sweeten the deal :-)
After a week I felt well-nourished, and never felt like I was limited in my choices. I even managed to eat junk food in the form of vegetarian pizza and vegetarian laksa. There is alot to be said for simplicity and flavour in a meat-free meal, and the light ‘not bloated’ feeling after eating. I think I’ll try and eat mostly vegetarian lunches from now on.
P.S. If you’re interested in vegetarian cuisine, the Harvest Vegetarian Cookbook is available to purchase online and at Dymocks in Australia
