Oh wow! It’s the last Monday of the year. Such an exciting 2013 it has been for me. Several years ago, I had a list called 35 by 35 – some outrageous or challenging things I wanted to do by the time I turned 35. I scrapped that list sometime last year and decided to yahoo it. I only managed to complete 1/3 of the list yet I’ve done more than I had set out to do. The essence of the list was to keep myself on my tippy toes, get healthier as well as break out of my comfort zone. Baby steps like exercising in a mixed gym, to running a public race (yes, I was embarrassed about sweating in public and being the last person), to eating healthier. Turning vegetarian was a surprise because I just wanted to consume less meat. Long story short, I’m still avoiding foods with faces and there are many things I enjoy eating. Other than the recipes inspired by family and friends, I’ve also gone on Pinterest for guidance on how to expand my meatless repertoire. So many delicious things to eat! Nibbly things, rich bakes, roasted noms… YUM!
Here are some of my favourites of these pins in the Very Vegetarian board:
- Honey Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts
- Easy Egg Muffins
- How to Make a Rice Ball
- Mozzarella Stick Recipe
- Gnocchi Gratin with Gorgonzola Dolce
- Gabrielle’s Winter Tomato and Corn Soup
Happy holidays! Enjoy eating! And see you in 2014!
