Mock Meat

I confess to having a liking for the floury taste of mock meat, although I am aware that many vegetarians dislike these. I enjoy eating mock meat purely for their taste, and not because of their so-called resemblance (supposedly to anyway, in taste and looks!) to the real thing!

However, if mock meat encourages non vegetarians to forgo real meat in their dishes then why not?

I actually do not like eating vegetables all that much. The reason I stopped taking meat is for personal beliefs and not for religious or health reasons. Nowadays I try to include more veggies in my diet, in my attempts to be more mindful of my health but the main staple in my diet is still flour! Which is why my cooking attempts shown here are mainly breads!

Vegan Brownies...............Anyone?

I love eating cakes, pastries, buns..... so when I turned vegetarian, it is slightly more difficult to get my favorites..... even more so when trying to find vegan options! So I try to make my own nowadays, where I can be sure I will not be accidentally taking something I should not.

Watch this space for my homemade vegan brownies.....

Oatmeal Bread

Going Meatless

I turned vegetarian more than a decade ago and I have never once regretted it. When I look back upon my carnivorian days, the only regret I have is that I did not become a vegetarian sooner.

I wonder why vegetarianism is not more common in this world; it is very cruel to eat the flesh of other animals, especially the animals farmed for their meat and other products. My question is if we can survive without gnawing on flesh why don't we ? Life was probably very different in the prehistoric days; where carnivorism was a matter of survival but can we say the same about today? These animals have to give up their lives (often in very brutal, painful, horrifying etc ........ circumstances) just to satisfy human appetites.

I do still take eggs and dairy but recently I am reducing my intake and hope to become a vegan.

The process of turning vegetarian will be different for every one; I stopped taking meat one day because of an innocent remark from a bystander. If you find it hard to give up meat altogether start by reducing your intake.

I hope we will have a vegetarian world one day. When that day comes, we will also have world peace.
