Monday Munch | Vegetarian Food Diary | Part 5

By Lisagray @juicysatsuma
I’ve been a vegetarian for 9 months now and I finally feel like I’m starting to properly get to grips with it. When i first became vegetarian I was eating a lot of pizza, pasta and chips because they are easy, familiar veggie options. Now I feel like I’m getting to grips more with eating veggie while still being (relatively) healthy.
BreakfastMonday Munch | Vegetarian Food Diary | Part 5  I always find that breakfast is the most difficult meal to vary. Generally I’m in a rush in the morning so I don’t have time to make anything too complex. This combination of natural yogurt, various berries and granola is a nice, quick breakfast option and it’s easy to switch it up a bit by varying the fruit used or the type of granola.
Monday Munch | Vegetarian Food Diary | Part 5  I’ve started taking daily vitamins with my breakfast, to be sure that my body is still getting everything it needs now that I’m a vegetarian. A really good multivitamin like this one from Viridian is a great place to start*!
Vegetarians are more susceptible to a vitamin B12 deficiency than meat eaters as vitamin B12 is ingested through the consumption of animal products. B12 supports the normal functioning of the nervous system, the immune system and red blood cell formation. You can get B12 from dairy products, so I do get some B12 naturally. I don’t eat a huge amount of dairy though, so it makes me feel more comfortable if I take these Viridian B12 capsules*, which combine all of the B vitamins together with high levels of B12.

This wasn’t really a lot to eat for lunch so I had an apple and a banana a short while afterwards. You don’t really need to see a photo of an apple and a banana though do you? No, exactly.
Monday Munch | Vegetarian Food Diary | Part 5 Dinner
For dinner I ate a cauliflower and cheese bake from ASDA, topped with avocado, with a side of sweet potato chips. I love chips and homemade sweet potato chips are a much healthier way to indulge in my craving. I’m obsessed with avocados right now. I love the creamy texture, nutty flavor and most all, how good they are for you! If you’re looking for easy vegetarian dinners then I highly recommend ASDA’s range of veggie burgers and bakes. They are really tasty and varied, and great for busy days when you don’t have time to cook something from scratch.
Monday Munch | Vegetarian Food Diary | Part 5 Snack
I love white chocolate. It makes me feel sick and amazing all at the same time! My favorite white chocolate is Milkybar and my favorite Milkybar product is the kiddies yogurt. It’s the perfect dinky size for a post dinner sweet treat. So, that’s us into July now and in Scotland the weather is still gray and miserable. I hope you’re having better luck of it wherever you are!
