I’m a confirmed sausage muncher but myself and my friend and fellow blogger Becs (Bitsandbobsbecs) will not be eating any meat or fish for the duration of the month of March. We’ve taken the decision to have a meat-free month to try and increase our culinary creativity, eat a healthier diet and to spend some serious time pondering whether we really need to eat quite as much meat as we do. Of course, this should also ensure horse is neigh-where to be found in our food. We don’t expect to be fully-fledged vegetarians by the end of the month, but we do hope to have made a few food discoveries (recipes and restaurants), expanded our horizons, saved some pounds and maybe dropped a lb or two too.
We’ll be detailing our exploits on our blogs – posting updates about everything from vegetarian cookbook and restaurant reviews, staving off sausage sarnie pangs and interviews with vegetarian chefs and we’d love to invite you all to take part with us. It may be that you are already vegetarian or vegan, or you’ve considered going vegetarian for a while and not yet taken the plunge, or – like us – you want to innovate your food routine. Whatever your reasons, we’d be happy to have you on board!
During the course of the month we are planning to set up a recipe exchange where participants swap their favourite vegetarian or vegan recipe with another blogger and then have a go at making it in their own home. This should hopefully provide us all with some inspiration in the kitchen, though we’d also love any suggestions for food or cooking techniques to try, eateries in our areas or beating bacon cravings.
We’ll also be tweeting about our exploits using the hashtag #MFMuk and invite anyone else who’d like to take part to do the same.
