I will admit, that the first time I had authentic Pad Thai, I didn’t like it. I was in Bangkok; it was my first trip to Asia and perhaps I wasn’t prepared for the intensity of the locally prepared dish? Or perhaps as I wasn’t feeling 100%, I’d have been inclined to reject any food offered to me? Perhaps I didn’t like that they had left the tails on the prawns? (Yes, you’re reading a vegetarian recipe, I however am not vegetarian). Whatever it was, despite originally finding it distasteful, authentic Pad Thai has become one of my regular meals. I now find that anything on offer in my home country to be disappointing. For the occasions that I can’t afford a plane ticket, I have developed some recipes for my (now) favourite dishes so that I can enjoy authentic flavour at home.
So, you've decided that you're curious about vegetarianism. That's great!

February 1, 2018. Before I went to sleep, I had two smoked sausages with mustard and syrup on plain white bread, my favorite munchies snack. I woke up the next morning, brushed my teeth and said, “I’m done with meat.” Never thought of it before, never had the urge to quit meat. I was super addicted to buffalo wings, just a regular, everyday meat eater. I do believe some health issues I’ve had came about because of the flesh of these animals you people tend to eat. I wanted to sound a bit snobbish; some people tend to think because I dislike meat that I think I’m better. Guess what, I don’t kill animals to eat them! I am better. I’m kidding, to each their own.
A Latvian and an American once had an idea. One is a carnivore, the other —a vegan. They talked, and talked, and came to a decision. That something new and exciting that fit their shared vision, an idea, an experiment if you will. They decided to go through ups, downs, and thrills. Here is the intro and the day one.
Sometimes I get asked, why are you a vegetarian? At that moment my heart sinks a little. It's like asking someone: Why do you believe in God? Or, What's the root cause for conflict in the middle east? It's not easy to deliver a sound bite in a sentence or two, especially when it's on a conviction of conscience that took months of soul searching to reach. It is for that reason I tend to turn the question on its head and say:
A number of days ago, I created a blogpost dedicated to what a day in my new, vegetarian diet looks like. Because I received such positive feedback on it, I decided that I would share another "full day of vegetarian eating" with you all. Without further ado, let's get into it.
Recently, myself and some colleagues from Therapy Agency challenged ourselves to go veggie for National Vegetarian Week. And to be honest, it wasn’t that hard. As a Filipino who was raised in an environment where eating meat was part of the culture, I thought I would struggle or even give up as soon as I saw a “6 wings and chips for £2.50” sign. Before I knew it, the week was over and I didn’t even realise I was still eating green until someone asked me about it.
I have been thinking a lot about consent lately; it’s become a bit of a buzzword and that’s no bad thing.
I grew up in a family that doesn't believe in a meal without meat and where a breakfast isn't a breakfast without bacon.
