I’ve been eating a Vegan diet for 11 weeks now and I’m feeling good.

Here are some pictures of meals I’ve enjoyed recently.

1.  A falafel, mushroom, spinach and houmous burger.

2.  Tofu/veggie scramble, fried polenta slices and steamed savoy cabbageImage

3.  ‘Green Museli’ – I chuck in lots of pumpkin seeds as an extra and add chopped kiwi fruit. This one was served with almond milk.

4. And finally, a luscious lemon cake I made at Easter

I’ve also been enjoying trying out some great bodycare products from ‘Lush’ and am completely bowled over by their shower gel called ‘The Olive Branch’.  It’s wonderful.  Here’s a link:-
