Towards the end of last year, I started to make a conscious effort to eat more vegetarian meals. I’m not about to cut out all of the meat from my diet, but I want to vary my consumption more, in the hope that I’ll feel better, physically and mentally.
I’ve been aware that I’m not sure what it’s like to feel refreshed. I often feel a constant fogginess and tension in my head, and while I am most definitely a morning person, I’m always low on energy in the evenings and I’d rather not be.
I want to take the time to try different things, and see what kind of impact they can have on the way that I feel. One of those things is to eat more vegetables!
I kicked of with some simple stir fries, and a couple of recipes from Madeleine Olivia’s Versatile Vegan recipe book, but I’m really hoping to get into my stride over the next few months.
Here are some recipes that I want to try out:
Thai satay stir fry from BBC Good Food
Roasted roots & halloumi traybake with courgette tangles from Jamie Oliver
Mushroom bourguignon also from Jamie Oliver
Spanish chickpea and spinach stew from Lazy Cat Kitchen
30 minute vegetable korma from Don’t Feed After Midnight
One pan mexican quinoa from Vegan Heaven
Sweet potato and coconut curry from BBC Good Food
