Greggs have done it again. 2020 has brought us the vegan steak bake and this was another crowd pleaser by the sounds of it. I have to say I am really impressed and I enjoyed the pasty very much. It's not something that I go for too often as too much pastry isn't good but it's nice to have an alternative treat to a sausage roll if I visit Greggs in the future.
I have been eating a plant-based diet since May 2018 and I have adapted some of my favourite recipes so they are now vegan. I have cooked this for family and friends and they have loved it just as much (if not more) than a chilli with beef mince in it! I actually prefer the flavour of this chilli and it is full of nutritional goodness! Hope you enjoy. Please let me know if you try it!
I recently subscribed to Gousto which is a food delivery service. They portion all of the ingredients you need to prepare and cook delicious meals from their website/app. This results in no food waste and they are super quick to make as well (my meals only took half an hour each). I will be talking about my meals and the Gousto box service in this post!
This week Deliciously Ella released The Plant Based Cookbook. I pre-ordered it and mine actually arrived Wednesday, a day before the official release. I am really inspired to cook more plant based meals now from receiving these amazing recipes and along with her YouTube channel, app and podcast I've definitely had an overload (in a good way) of Deliciously Ella this week!
It has been almost ten weeks since I began eating a plant-based diet upon my return from the USA. I can honestly say I am very surprised (in a good way) and do not miss anything that I used to eat/drink. In this blog post I will be talking through how my plant-based diet is going as well as where I draw the line with vegan foods and what I now consume. I hope this will be insightful and I am really interested in what you think about plant-based diets.
