Good morning from Halfmoon Bay. We are well into the loooong, dark, rainy days of winter. Thank goodness we got our yard work done yesterday as part of our Operation Clean up (well, except for the porch stones) because it's raining today. These are the kinds of days that make you want to curl up … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Skinny Soup, Pumpkin Chili & More

This week is a clean-out-the freezer week. I have some ribs and a lovely roast that needs to be eaten soon, so this is the week to do it. I luuurve roast beef & yorkshire pudding! I didn't lose any weight this week (might be the glass of red wine every night), but I did't … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello Vegetarian Lovers (and a few meat lovers too), How are you all? I made a concerted effort to lose weight last week and lost ... 3 lbs! I was ecstatic. After not being able to lose a thing since I quit smoking 4 years ago. I've been making better food choices on weekends and at … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

It's cooled down quite a lot since my last post and it sure feels like Fall...ish. We're still waiting for our tomatoes to ripen, but the Swiss Chard is growing like a weed and I've picked enough of it to add to a stew (tonight's dinner) and one of our favourite meals - Kenyan Braised … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi all. It's been a busy weekend! After almost two years on worker's compensation, hubby has been cleared to go back to work! Yay! It's been that long since I made lunches, and this weekend I decided to keep it simple until I could come up with more, er, creative but not too time-consuming, ideas. … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Summer has arrived very quietly here in Halfmoon Bay. The days are cool-ish and pleasant. Our vegetable garden is growing by the minute! It won't be long until we will be eating our own home-grown food.

I've been trying to broaden my horizons with regards to vegetarian recipes, and so I googled "Vegetarian Bloggers" and ended up on Kitchn's website (lurrve Kitchn). I was directed to a number of vegetarian blog sites - Naturally Ella - has some yummy-looking dinner recipes like Spiced Pinto Bean Bowls with Avocado, Pinto Squash Stew with … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks. Things have been more than a little hectic around here. Buuut, I'm getting back on track now.  I'm afraid to say that I fell off the wagon in terms of exercise. With the warmer weather, I've (re)started walking for 30 minutes a day along the sea wall in Sechelt … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi Guys. The comfort food last week seemed to do the trick - we're feeling almost normal again 🙂 I haven't even been near the scale last week as 'comfort food' also included a couple of bags of chips while watching a movie or two, not to mention the chocolate. I think we all need … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

I lost 2 lbs last week! Yay! I'm feeling great and sleeping well, so that's good too! This week's jar salads are Cobb Salad in a Jar with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. I also used the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing to dip my vege snacks into :). One of the ingredients in the salad was Blue Cheese … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
