Sorry for my disappearance this week. It was my birthday last friday and honestly, I was enjoying bludging around doing close to nothing on my last week away from work. Surprisingly, the week before my birthday I had a serious case of the birthday blues. Oh my, I don't think I've ever felt so down about adding another year to my age! After
One of the things I've decided to do is to go vegetarian for a month, starting from yesterday. I'm not 100% sure what caused me to want to do this, but I generally favour vegetables more than meat. I feel that my body responds better when I eat less meat, vegetarian meals instantly make me feel lighter, leaner and fresher - placebo perhaps? Maybe, we'll see. The idea of cooking ingredients that my taste buds have never experienced and my hands have never touched is pretty exciting as well.
I won't be going crazily strict with this challenge as I know that I will break so I'm allowing myself to eat dairy, eggs and seafood. I've decided to make 5 meals a week, enough for dinner that night and lunch the next day. I have a sneaking suspicion that this challenge is going to do good for my wallet.
On the menu this week...
