The dog-food experiment has been a great success! To read more about that, click here.  Once a week, I load up the slow cooker with all the scraps, leftovers and cheap meat that I save for them in a big plastic container in the fridge. To this I add water and cook for 6 hours. … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

It won't be long until we will be eating our own home-grown food.

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

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … 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 missed the last couple of weeks - this house has been sick, so only Chicken Noodle Soup and Whisky hot toddies were on the menu! We seem to be recovering, but are still hankering for comfort food, so this week's menu is just that. Monday: Turkey/Lasagna Soup. This isn't exactly "soup" per se, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Well, I'm still not sure if I've lost any weight. Our new scale arrived last week, but I guess I'll have to wait a week until I know for sure. I'm certain I haven't gained anything, as my clothes haven't got any tighter!  🙂 When I made the Balsamic Roast Veggie & White Bean Pasta, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi guys, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Ours was filled with lots of chocolate and other yummy things.
