Meat-free: Week 32

After going ‘cold-turkey’ and excluding meat and seafood from my meals in January, I’ve managed to last 32 weeks! I’ve been able to try out foods I’d never usually go for, or eat foods that I thought I hated. Tofu being one of them. Over these months, I’ve learned that I really only miss one…

Mooshies Vegan Burger: A Review

“Vegan burgers? No thanks.” Before giving up meat and fish, I was a huge burger fan. I’ve had fantastic beef and chicken burgers from Honest Burgers, Patty & Bun, The Blues Kitchen and more. I didn’t think that a vegetarian or vegan burger would be able to be on par with, or even better than…

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Before trying out homemade brownies, the store-bought ones were not the best to be honest. I think that’s why so many people I know aren’t the hugest fans of them. I’ve had a few very sickly brownies myself, but that nauseous feeling soon disappeared after tackling these chocolatey treats at home. I mostly used a…

Spinach & Artichoke Pasta Bake

After watching numerous videos on ‘spinach artichoke dip’ or ‘spinach artichoke bread’, I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to make a spinach and artichoke pasta bake. Cheese and spinach I love, so that wasn’t a problem. However, I had never tried artichokes until having this dish. I was a little bit hesitant, but after…

Meat-free: Week 16

I’ve made it to week 16! These last few months have been very interesting. I’ve tried foods that I would have never usually have before: some good, some bad. I’ve also noticed myself leaning towards one particular type of cuisine. Weeks 5 – 8 saw myself going for a variety of seeds/grains/pasta such as: Bulgur…

Banana, Walnut & Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

It’s about time I made a loaf cake. I didn’t own a loaf tin until last week actually. I’ve seen many recipes using 2lb loaf tins, but I went and bought a 3lb one because my family can eat. I do love a banana bread, but I also love to jazz things up. I’ve added…

Quinoa, Stir-fried Vegetables & Feta Salad

I was in the mood for having ”super grains” after having some from the cafe at work a few weeks ago. It was a quinoa, sultana and almond salad. Of course, I picked out the sultanas (it’s a texture thing), and just had the quinoa and almonds, along with some lettuce, onions and tomatoes. It tasted…
