NVW day 7 update

Good morning ย ๐Ÿ™‚

National Vegetarian Week has come to an end but that’s no reason to revert back to your carnivorous ways, a vegetarian diet can provide all the healthy nutrition our bodies need.

Day 7 of vegan week went really well, I had a bagel with peanut butter and mashed banana for breakfast, vegan sausage (red pepper and butternut squash) and the last of my homemade houmous in a sandwich for lunch and vegetable risotto with stir fried spring greens for dinner. ย And a special treat of a vegan almond magnum ice cream, which was incredibly delicious.

So the big question is do I continue?

    Hey Rory, good to hear from you. You’re right, the fish we eat is likely contaminated not only through plastic but chemicals also. Well done on dropping meat from your and Suze’s diet, and if you do move to full vegetarian then that’s great too. I can’t with a rational mind advocate eating anything other than a vegan diet, and there are so many options now that people can make the transition relatively easily.

    Did you see the Panorama on Salmon Farming? That helped make my decicion to certainly remain vegetarian with a heavily vegan bias. If I can switch the rest of the family from dairy milk and cheese then even better and we can aim to be a vegan household (although I accept this won’t necessarily be followed outside of the house). I’ve got a few vegan cheese substitues on order but if they taste good enough then there’s no reason to go back.

    Take care xx


  2. Hey Karen,

    A interesting series of posts indeed.

    I am not a vegan, nor a vegetarian, l am a pescatarian. I haven’t been a meat eater for many years as in red meat, l took the decision six weeks ago, well Suze and l both did to drop white meat from our diets, for a few reasons, 1] the cruelty aspect to animals, 2] the chemicals in meat and 3] because we have been veering away from white meats for the last year or so, so it wasn’t that big a leap.

    So pescatarians we are, however l have said to suze recently that, because of all the plastic shit in the seas, and the microbeads, l very much doubt l will still be a fish eater in 2020, and probably become a vegetarian.

    Good job on your week – but the question at the end of this post isn’t one for us to answer – but you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well done on the challenge! Would you want to continue? Or maybe mix & match a little, have some vegan-friendly days? xx

      I’m conflicted, the more I think about the animals the more I want to but it’s not easy for example today I had to go out for lunch (no kitchen, water or electricity) went to Debenhams cafe – no vegan choices, tried Costa – same, third time lucky at Starbucks.
      I’ll just have to see how it goes, it may be a case of chop and change while I make my mind up!
