Mmmm… chickpea curry! It makes my mouth water just looking at it – and I just finished eating a big bowl full!
What more can I say about vegan cooking that I haven’t said already? I feel like one of those hippy stereotypes that talks about drinking green smoothies and spouts off all the advantages of hot yoga (for the record, I don’t drink green smoothies, although I’d love to tell you all about how downward dog and tree pose make me feel…). I admit I am a bit of a hippy – especially when you compare me to my meat-eating family.
I won’t try to convince you of anything, though. It’s everyone’s personal choice what they eat. We all have beliefs – some more extreme than others. My beliefs – especially since my month of being a strict vegan – are that cooking and baking without any animals products is delicious, much healthier, and really did completely change my relationship with food.
I’m no longer a strict vegan. I eat a bit of chicken and fish. And I did have a slice of Baileys cake at my friend’s house the other day. But generally I stay away from dairy, pork and beef. I would still, however, prefer to cook vegan foods. And I love photographing the beautiful colours of the different vegetables, herbs and spices.
