I stopped eating meat for Lent but I’m not vegetarian yet

Apart from a two week period when I attempted to be a vegetarian in primary school because I was easily influenced by what my friends were doing, I’ve been pretty happy as an omnivore. I don’t eat meat with every meal, but I’ve also been happy to eat it. So what made me give up meat for Lent and how have I found it?

Recipe: Lentil Chilli

I decided recently that I wanted to try and eat more vegetarian food. Whilst I enjoy meat, and don’t intend to give it up entirely, I don’t feel the need to eat it everyday and I don’t want to take it for granted. There are lots of reasons why we shouldn’t eat meat, or at least not eat it as frequently that have started to make more sense to me. This recipe came about as a result of me experimenting with non-meat dishes.

Recipe: Falafel Burgers

I don’t know about you, but every now and again I find that I get stuck in a rut with what I am eating. I try not to have the same meal too regularly, simply because it gets boring, but somehow each week the same ingredients end up in my shopping trolley. This weekend, simply because we both had a little more time, my boyfriend and I made a point of trying to find something new to make. The recipe books came out, and falafel burgers were what we chose.
