    well I see now all you veggies have created a spot for yourselves; I could never be vegetarian but I respect anyone who is for following their beliefs - not just talking the talk :D

    Yup, and we'll give you recipes too :)

    I'm having a rice salad with pickled gerkhins and sweet peppers, rocket and peas followed by a sweet and delicious melon.

    Doing it while watching the eager consumption of all sorts of things I won't have ....

    I don't think I would be a good vegetarian because I don't like vegetables ; )

    not even sweet ones like sweet potatoes and carrots? Apparantly some people have taste receptors that make veggies in the broccoli family taste really bitter. Maybe that describes you. So trying small doses of the other sorts might help you change your tastes. Or could you eat them cooked with different herbs and spices? Like in Italian or Chines foods, or curries? Doesn't have to be fatty foods cooked our way.

    You sound like a good challenge :)

    Cactus, plain veggies can be boring but with the right seasoning they're very good. Give vegetables a go;)
    I posted a Vegan bolognese on the vegetarian recipes thread. I think you could give it a go;)
    If you're into fast food vegetarian pizzas can be very good: add some vegetarian sausages for that extra flavour!

    Karen, that shake sounds delicious :)
    I love shakes/smoothies but I rarelly make them because they fill me up the time but after an hour or so I feel hungry again... I think I need solind munchies to keep the hunger away.


    Yesterday's dinner:
    - Whole wheat pasta with mushroom stirfry and cherry tomatoes
    - 1 orange

    Micci, I want your fruit salad!! I never tried dragon fruit (I never saw it around here I think) but the other fruits are some of my favourites;)

    My dinner today was red lentil soup and 2 oranges

    Red Lentil soup
    - 3.5 oz red lentils (dry)
    - 1 cup of diced broccoli
    - 2 cloves of diced garlic
    - 6 oz diced tomatoes
    - salt, herbs and pepper to taste

    Just cook everything together, it's super easy :)
