    Tell us what you have eaten today ..

    This is a forum for vegetarians .. So please no meat references ..
    A Vegetarian is someone who lives on a diet of grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables and fruits with, or without, the use of dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish* or by-products of slaughter.

  3. Yesterday I had scrambled eggs and mushrooms for brunch.

    In the evening there was a family Italian-y birthday dinner at my mum's so I made my own spiralised courgettes in Sacla vegetarian recipe pesto sauce, sundried tomatoes, feta and flaked almonds. Takes only minutes to throw together so I wasn't in the way. I also took along a Lidl high protein roll which I had cut into thin soldiers, toasted and rubbed with a garlic clove so I had my own garlic bread.

    For pudding I had made low carb chocolate mousse flavoured with spiced rum, lime and chilli and served in little espresso cups. I may be able to photograph a leftover one.

    And champagne :D

  4. I assume Enclave is including lactos and lacto-ovos in this thread.

    @Enclave or @Administrator - Could it be worthwhile amending the thread title to be specifically veggie? Something like "Vegetarians; What have you eaten today?"

    There's already at least one thread with the current title, and I fear you'll be "contaminated" by enthusiastic omnivores posting their meat feasts.....

    Of course, that's just a suggestion. :)









    I'll get my coat. I have a Sunday roast (lamb) joint to fettle. ;)

    B: Not normally one for a sweet breakfast but experimented with the Coconut/Psyllium Flat Bread by adding Cocoa Powder, Coconut Essence, Vanilla Essence & a little Stevia. Ate it with peanut butter - not too shabby :)

    L: Tomato, olive & walnut flax muffin with avocado & a couple of spinach puffs

    D: Usual Sunday night - 2 Burgen soy & linseed toast with Vegemite, avocado & eggs

    My menus can get a bit same same because husband travels a lot & it's a bit dreary cooking for one but maybe this lovely new vegetarian forum will inspire me :)

  15. I know what you mean @Safi I don't mind cooking for one, but it often means I am eating the same thing for days. My fussy kids wont touch cauliflower :meh:

    Brunch: feta omelette
    Dinner: a portion of red stuff from the freezer - tomatoes, mushrooms, pepper, cannellini beans - on courgetti and topped with Cajun spice, pickled jalapenos and grated cheddar. A leftover chocolate mousse for pudding.

    B: chocolate/coconut flat bread with peanut butter again
    L: cheese/almond bread with chipotle marinated tempeh, 3 spinach puffs & a few macadamias (all a bit random really!)
    D: vegetarian 'chicken' & asparagus salad & an olive/tomato/walnut flax muffin. Had planned to have avocado with the salad but the cheeky thing was all spotty under its skin.
