    MY THOUGHTS ON PLANT BASED DIETS

    For the past year, in 2018, I have to confess I ate a lot more than I used to and it was not even healthy meals… too much red meat & not enough fresh food. Although I did start cooking for myself a lot more. When I wasn’t cooking, I was going out for meals with high fat & protein-rich foods, such as steak & beef burgers! Towards the end of 2018, I swapped chips for salad and that helped. This year I want my food goal to cut out or severely reduce my meat-eating down to about 20% or less.

    My journey with food, & beyond.

    I have been musing about what to add on my blog and I thought why not Food & Drink? Let me take you on a journey as to why I love this topic so much… When I was a child I loved going out to places and loved to eat a lot. A favourite place I used to love in Cardiff Bay was a fish and chip restaurant centred next to Techniquest. It was a lovely place and it had some memories I will treasure forever of going there with my dearly beloved nan. Scroll on to 2000s, I was an anti-food snob and barely ate anything but ready meals and…
