I am in my mid-50s and was a vegetarian for 5 years in my 20s. I gave up because I got bored with the food I was eating and cooking. I had some good cookbooks from Cranks but I just found it took too much time to prepare meals. 


I would like to try again after enjoying some of  the most tasty vegetarian/vegan food at farmers market, trendy markets in London and at various alternative summer festivals.


I would like to stop eating meating but need help with the preparation of quick tasty meals and snacks.


I hope this group can help me the preparation good nutritious meals.

Hi pipsqueak! It is much easier to be vegetarian today than it was years ago. There are more products; many restaurants have veggie options, etc. And the cooking I find far easier and more fun than meat meals. smiley.gif

You have come to the right place, welcome!

Hi and welcome :)


As LedBoots says, the vegetarian options are much better these days.  Are you based in London?  There are some awesome vegetarian and vegan cafes and restaurants if so.


We have quite an extensive recipe section but if there's a type of food, meal plan etc you have in mind then let us know.

Hey! I'm glad to hear you are going back to a veg lifestyle! I hope you find that it is easier now than it was before. I get bored with food very easily and find I'm never short on new recipes to try. I hope you find what you are looking for here!
