My Daily Diet! (Vegetarian)

I've been promising this post for ages...and now here it is!  I've gotten a lot of requests to show examples of what I eat since I became vegetarian two months ago, and I can honestly say that I've never been happier with my diet.  I have always wanted to go veg, but for the sake of convenience I kept putting it on hold.  I love animals and hated the feeling of guilt I had everytime I ate one.  Most of my family are meat-eaters, which is why it was virtually impossible for me to become vegetarian as a child/teenager.  My husband Jonathan also still eats meat (although he generally sticks to chicken or fish!) and I want to make it clear that although I've changed my diet I have absolutely nothing against anyone who eats differently than me.  I don't intend for this post to offend anyone, I would rather it be a tool for people like me who might want to "take the plunge" but are afraid that they won't have enough options without meat in their lives. 

The transition was not difficult, probably given the fact that I didn't eat a lot of meat before then anyway.  I also don't feel much different physically, but the emotional effects that going vegetarian have had on me have been huge.  I feel SO much better about myself now, my conscience is clear and knowing that I'm doing something to help animals is amazing.  So here is what I generally eat in an ordinary, boring day at home! ;)


Oatmeal with soy milk, 1/2 banana, blueberries & cinnamon
Cup of coffee (black)


Wholegrain sandwich with feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, cucumber & red onion
Cup of green tea with jasmine (not pictured)


Apple & low-fat strawberry yoghurt


Vegetarian chilli with basmati rice (recipe! -- I omitted the beef, obviously)


Orange & low-fat peach yoghurt 
Green tea with jasmine


And right before bed -- a relaxing chamomile tea while blogging with Albi ;)

Stay Stylish!
