Some people eat to live, others live to eat. Many of us find ourselves in the second category which makes switching to dairy free, meat free, healthy vegan diets a serious challenge as, unfortunately, veggie and vegan diets are associated with boring lettuce leafs, lack of protein and a lack in the diversity of flavour. But, let’s be honest, what it really means is that we have to be more ingenuous in the way that we cook and eat, in the food we choose and in the recipes that we try.
Therefore, this article is written with you in mind. You, you beautiful walking sac of liquid, you wondrous speaking breathing organism cornered as you feel more unhappy about the way you eat, and its effect on your body while knowing that your way out is to uproot your habits and change your lifestyle.
And we are here to help. Making lasting change is as much about the process as it is about the end result. We cannot fight forever against ourselves. We must find enjoyment in the journey, in each step. Thankfully there are many out there who can support us, helping us transition from lives that we don’t enjoy into those that we do. For a journey like this, that support comes in the shape of recipes, like these 3 which we think are going to tickle your tastebuds and help you overcome any preconceived notions that eating healthy isn’t tasty:
Burgers are one of those foods that are very hard to give up. Loads of current vegans were previous burgerholics whose meat appetites could not be sated. And the main reason for that is that Quorn never looked as good on the barbecue, no need to knock the vegan burger though. This recipe changes everything.
We love pasta. It’s not raw. But we’ll let that slide. Unfortunately it is not always the best food for you if it is left on its own, as the nutritional content of a bowl of pasta with no accompaniment does not contribute to our health and well being as would a ripe avocado. With the addition of peas and a good green smoothie though, indulging in this recipe will do you no harm. So give it a go.
Citrus Green Smoothie
Not only are smoothies a rapid way to get your core nutrients throughout the day, but they are also a dreamy concoction of flavours that are like a holiday for your tastebuds. Having them on holiday probably adds to that as well, as a clean green smoothie goes very well with headstands and other Yogic exercises. This one especially. Tell us what you think!
We hope you have as much fun as we will making these recipes come to life,
