So I really enjoy eating vegetarian food as you may all remember from my vegan curry that I really enjoy eating meat free meals or just meals where the meat is an accompaniment rather than the main event.

I am not overly keen on red meats, this may have something to do with it irritatating my Ulcerative Colitis but now I just don’t really care for it unless it is in a tomato based pasta dish. I just prefer eating vegetarian foods and because I still have some mild very mild intolerances to dairy I often eat vegan unless it is cheese, cheese has never done me any harm so I won’t give it up!
