So after my #21Earthydays challenge by Earthyandy I am pretty keen to keepup this way of life. I like to live a life of as much freedom as possible andprefer not to define myself as one thing like a vegan or pescatarian, butprefer to eat a plant based diet, staying away from processed foods with a little meat or dairy every now andthen. My philosophy on food is changing and being challenged the more and moreI learn and I love that about this passion of mine.
Plant based is defined by the NCBI as ‘a regime that encourages whole, plant based foods and discourages meats, dairy products and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods.’
I find lunches are the hardest thing to keep up the good habit with. Dinner you have a bit of time and breakfast you can blend a smoothie quickly or make over night oats the night before. So Lunches I like to have yummy things available to add to salads or Buddha bowls like this one.Hummus is a great one to have around and one tin of chickpeas will make you enough to last a few days at least if not more. I have also started keeping wild rice and lentils cooked and frozen so that I can defrost and use it at any stage.
