Meatless meals

Many people often wonder how vegetarians get enough nutrition and protein. While others ostracise or make unnecessary dining emphasis on the restricted food that’s allowed to enter our mouths. I’ve been a newly convert for almost 10 months now. No doubt it isn’t easy, but don’t be surprised if one of the biggest challenges is having to answer repetitive and disrespectful questions from meat-loving/meat-defending pricks. Just as how people avoid nuts or milk due to allergies or lactose-intolerance, choosing to have a herbivorous diet is not any different. Recently I’ve been struggling to get a balance of protein in my daily intake, and the last thing I want to hear is how meat has the most protein. Remind me to rain all over your parade or shit all over your freshly frosted cupcakes the next time you decide to commit to something new or have a life goal. Very encouraging, gracias~!

Since when did everybody suddenly become an expert in nutrition? Pardon me – I must have skipped basic introduction classes of the ‘Protein-is-best-in-flesh 101’.

And who says vegetarian meal options are not as tasty? Here are my totally tasty homemade meals of past weeks, though maybe they’ll be even tastier if I wasn’t attempting to eat clean. Yes, I love photographing food. Asians will be asians. #AZN

P is for Pumpkin

Came across a graham cracker pie crust the other day at the clearance rack of the supermarket and grabbed it immediately. I knew I needed an excuse to make a pie. This gluten free treat was surprisingly easy to make and I cut up an ugly slice to have a taste once it cooled.  Though I wish I was more generous with spicing it up with a little extra ginger. & because I was running late after, I practically spent the hour-long journey to town with fingers that smelt like cinnamon & maple smelling. Baking woes.
