My Fortieth Day Of Being A Veggie
April 1, 2012 § 1 Comment
Seriously I can’t believe I’ve got this far. I’ve got like 6 days to go ! Which is just crazy. It’s gone so quickly ! So, for the last week I thought I’d really try my hardest to try new foods and be more open in regards to food that I often avoid… like peppers and nuts etc. Oh and vegetables, but I’ve been getting better with them recently. I suppose I have no choice really…
I working at the moment, so on my lunch break I’ve popped into town. I’ve started going to M&S because I feel all sophisticated when I go in there and plus they do some lovely salad things. I have developed a recent love for M&S.
Anyway today I bought ‘Nutty Grain and Vegetable Salad’ and a ‘3 bean salad’, they were on an offer, like 2 for £3.
It looks slightly vegan like? But how healthy does this look!
So the first salad was a mixture of quinoa, black eyed beans, carrots, peas, broccoli, green beans and then a mixture of nuts (which I picked out… slightly defeating the point of the ‘nutty’ salad’. I then mixed it with the bean salad which was a mixture of flageolet beans (yep, no idea either), black beans, borlotti beans and red pepper and sweetcorn.
I mixed them up so I’ll get a couple of lunches out of them. They actually work really well together. I prefer the beans to the quinoa, just because I found there was not much flavour to them, but I was really interest in trying it as I’ve heard a lot about it recently. It keeps popping up in recipes or articles that I’ve been reading, so I really wanted to try it. But I do prefer cous-cous if I’m honest…
I’m into my last 6 days !!! Saying that, I will be quite sad when this is over.
