I’m not sure how many of my readers are already vegetarian or vegan but, whatever your dietary tendencies, I’m guessing that you love your veggies otherwise you wouldn’t be reading my blog 😉

If you’ve been thinking of going veggie, or would like to increase the amount of veggie meals that you eat, then this would be a perfect week to start.  There are lots of activities, events and restaurant deals taking place all over the country.  You can find out what’s happening in your local area by clicking on this link.  Here in the South West, it’s the Bristol VegFest next weekend.

If you’re looking for veggie-related resources, there is a great selection of free booklets from the Vegetarian Society that can be ordered in hard copy or downloaded.  If you’re interested in trying a 100% plant-based diet, Viva produce a range of useful guides, many of which are free to view online.

If you have children and are concerned whether a plant-based diet can meet all their dietary requirements, rest assured that it most certainly can.   The Vegetarian Society and Viva have lots of great resources for parents on their  websites, including free guides and kid-friendly recipe booklets.

Through my blog, I’ve hopefully shown you just how tasty and colourful veggie food can be…

… as well as being simple to make, quick to prepare and cheap.

Today, I’d like to share one of our favourite, super quick, low prep meals that’s perfect for a busy weekday night.  We ate this meal tonight and Lil’ L absolutely loved it.  He’s already ‘bagsied’ the leftovers to take to school tomorrow 😉

Have a great week everyone!  I hope the sun is shining wherever you are xx

p.s. If you have any veggie-related questions, don’t hesitate to give me a shout.  I’m not a dietician, but I’ve been veggie since the age of 12, so I have a fair few years’ experience 😉

  1. Happy Veggie Week, Sharon! I will certainly be celebrating! 🙂 I cannot believe (well, okay, yes I can, because they’re yours!) how beautiful those photos are. What a gorgeous illustration of how delicious vegetarian eating can be. They belong in a cookbook! Thank you for sharing your beautiful food with us and inspiring us to eat beautifully. I must get my hands on some sun dried tomato paste–that pasta dish sounds delicious.

    1. Thank you so much Candy for your kind words. The cookbook has turned out to be far more work than I ever anticipated but I’ve enjoyed the journey so far (even if it has taken a couple of years… and counting!) For the past few weeks I’ve been devoting a lot more time to it, which is why I haven’t been blogging much. I wish there were more hours in the day… I need to borrow Hermione’s time turning watch 😉
