I know I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but seeing this week that there now over half a million vegans in the UK (a rise of 360% in the last 10 years) got me thinking, and I want to have a go to see how hard it is – how much you can eat in restaurants, whether I’m tired all the time and how much bacon and cheese I really get through.
I think going straight to being a vegan is extreme for me and the way I eat, so decided to try a week of being vegetarian – mostly out of curiosity, and reassurance that I can still have cheese.
I’m a fairly big meat eater, steak is my death row meal and I find it hard to think of meals that don’t revolve around meat. I’m thinking of it as an opportunity to be a bit creative with cooking my faves, and hopefully discover some new dishes, ingredients and restaurants.
So it starts tomorrow, all vegetarian, no fish, no meat. Wish me luck!
