Vegetarian? Yes but ….

Vegetarian, vegan, healthy food …. Oh my God, the internet is overfilled with healthy people and wonderful photographies of healthy food. Happy cooking women who look gorgeous and fit!

And here I am, Mom of two adult children, 43 years old, having a fulltime job, commuting from Monday to Friday, two days off for the weekend. Just wondering how can I become a healthy responsible fit woman like all those creatures looking at me from my different screens – phone, computer ….

Living healthy and saving animals and our planet is my new credo!

How to???????

My daughter offered my a wonderful vegetarian cookbook for beginners. I’m full of enthusiasm to start my new clean eating trip.

First, trying to find all the ingredients for the recipe is like climbing the Mount Everest without training and equipement! My local supermarket doesn’t have half of the ingredients I need. Second surpise, my weekly eating budget is exploding!

No problem, one has to accept making sacrifices to become a good healthy citizen. Back in the kitchen, having worked all day long, took me two full hours to go and come back from work. Tired, but workout has to be done before eating. And then, awwwwwwww the book said 30 minutes to prepare the meal, and now it’s more than an hour that I’m cleaning, chopping and crying because of fresh and healthy onions! When I finally have finished with all those veggies, comes the moment to put it in the oven, another 45 minutes before we finally are sll seated around the table with my first vegetarian meal. I’m so tired, I don’t even appreciate eating.

Okayyyyyyy, that is a disaster, but I’m not a girl (mmmmm woman) to give up easily. My motto : never give up!

So here’s my proper vegetarian lifestyle. Cheap, easy, quick … All I need to be happy. And it’s true, I feel much better now that I have totally eliminated meat and fish from my dishes. But I don’t think that I could become vegan, I’m addicted to milk products like cheese. However, I have reduced seriously my consumption of milk or eggs. I now use almond, coconut or rice milk.

I found a lot of vegetarian dishes in my local supermarket like puffy dough filled with cheese, spinach and cheese, tomatoes and mozzarella. You can also get fried cheese balls. For the vegetables, I either take deep frozen products, boxed veggies or dried beans/ lentils/dehydrated smashed potatoes. At home, I add onions, spices, or I combine different vegetables. I also try different type of cooking, fried, steam cooked or baked in the oven. The only limit is your imagination.

With this method, I globally have a 120€ weekly budget for food for four adults.

Good morning … Thinking

Good morning lovely people. 😘

Have a wonderful Wednesday💕

Prayers and love …. Mourning Manchester

Mother and daughter day

My lovely daughter offered me a wonderful day in Paris. Thank you soooooo 💋

First stop Zara and C&A to get some clothes to be warm. When we left in the morning, dressed for summer, the temperature was nice …. Arriving in Paris we were like brrrrrr it’s too cold…..

She invited me to a vegan burger restaurant Hank’s Burger situated in the heart of Le Marais. Have a look at this wondrous food and the really cool interior.

Their meal is just totally amazing. Impossible to eat a dessert.

Next stop : house of tea. We tasted a cold matcha rice milk tea.

Do you know this place? Les colonnes de Buren, a bit hidden behind the imposing building of La Comedie Française.

Everybody gets up onto the columns.

And to finish a perfect day, get a Bubble tea at Zenso.

I started a blog because I love to write. Not only that but I love to cover my face with war paint. I started my blog to share this with the world! Particularly because as a young person in an increasingly globalised world, money is tight. As a result I’ve been able to…

In love with antiques

I just love antiques stores. And so does hubby. As every first Sunday of each month, we visited hubby’s mother in Normandy. It’s such a lovely road, especially during spring and summer. All the properties and farm houses are so colourful with all the flowers blooming everywhere. Now back to the antiques shop. It’s a stately home where the proprietor has transformed the first floor into a shop. The arrangement is just so beautiful I had to take some pictures I want to share with you.

Below you can see an ancient society game.

Guess what this chair was meant for! In the middle of the seat you can pull open a space an underneath you put a kind of big bowl hidden in the chair’s basement. Yup …. Ancestor of our toilets.

And best of all, we purchased this beauty for our bathroom.

The importance of working out

Working out is healthy for your body and your mind. You can exercise in so many different ways : 

Some go to the gym

Some will walk

Some will dance

Just be active every day. You will feel better, less tired, happier, more patient, more tolerant. And there are much more benefits you will discover each time you move your body.

When you are really not in the mood to move, take your headohones and put on your favourite music. You will feel so proud of yourself. You will achieve to battle your inner enemy who wants you to remain inactive. 

Exercise will not only model your body but your mind too.
