Eating healthy on a budget

Eating healthy on a budget

As a vegetarian, I heard many times that my food expenses must be high. I don’t agree, as eating healthy on a budget is possible. It’s only that people assume that being a veg*n means eating smashed avocado on toast, eventually topped with quinoa. Which, funnily enough, is not that expensive, only at posh bistros […]

Meal plan - Monday

Meal plan. Updated

I made a meal plan to mark National Vegetarian Week. This is an update on how well the plan worked. I respected the plan almost 100%, so I’m pretty pleased with this. As I took the pictures of the food at different times of the day, the light differs, which was also interesting to see. […]

Meal plan

I wanted to share something else today, but as tomorrow starts National Vegetarian Week here in the UK, I will share my Meal plan for next week instead. At the end of the week, I will update (maybe re-publish) this post with comments and pictures of the food I made. Before now I shared a […]

Things I ate as a child - starters

Things I ate as a child

Today I’m going to talk about Things I ate as a child. This might be interesting for my readers from UK and US, as none of these foods are either brands or packaged. This is because in the 80s Romania, under the communists, there were no Western brands. At most, we had some Pepsi, which […]

9 Favourite Recipes

9 Favourite Recipes

In this post I will talk about 9 Favourite Recipes. Although, more precisely the post should have been entitled something like: Taste the World – 9 favourite recipes from the ones I tried for my Taste the World challenge, so far – but sounds like a mouthful. Of course, all recipes are shared on my […]

Vegan Food Shop

Vegan Food Shop

In a few days Veganuary ends and lots of people will stop eating veggies and will go back to dairy and meat. So I thought this is the perfect time to share my Vegan Food Shop. I’m not keeping Veganuary, but I’m making a daily effort to incorporate as many veggies in my diet. This […]

Baking Along the Bake Off 2019

Another year of Baking Along the Bake Off. I wasn’t sure if I would have the time, but I did. Two weeks I prepared my desserts in the caravan, as I was away on holiday and in Oxford. I was delighted that David won, as he seems so lovely and his bakes were so great. […]

Baking the Bake Off

For the last four years I’ve baked along the Bake Off (if you consider 2017 baking along though). I made round-ups for 2016 and 2015 (links to the posts, pictures are at the end of this post). I didn’t share a round-up for the last year and neither for 2017 (after they moved to Channel […]

Ethnic Foods

Ethnic Foods

I love trying all sort of different foods, so today I will blog about ethnic foods. If you’ve just started following me, you might not be aware that I’m doing a food challenge called Taste the World. That means I’m cooking a dish (or a few) from each part of the world. As the cuisines […]

No Bull Burger

No Bull Burgers

These vegan fake meat No Bull Burgers have been in the Iceland shops for a few months, almost an year, I’ve had them a few times and I do enjoy them. So, I’ve decided to talk about them. As it’s not something I can say I cooked I’ve decided to talk about them here, on […]
