Hooray for Italian Tuesday

At the beginning of this year I started a food tradition of my own, that every Tuesday I’d eat Italian food and call it Italian Tuesdays. This all started when I was in Suriname this january and ordered pasta with tomato sauce on a Tuesday at my favourite terrace in Paramaribo City, ‘t Vat.

Anniversary, 11 years a vegetarian

IMG-20140524-04838

Today is exactly 11 years ago I started my vegetarian lifestyle. It was an idea I had going on in my head for a long time before actually doing it. When I decided that I was really going to do it, I wanted it to be on a day that I could also remember and that’s why I choose September 1. Because on this day I also started my study Nutrition and Dietetics and figured it would be a great way to start a new lifestyle altogether. Fresh out of high school, new into college and a new healthy way of eating. Not that eating meat is not healthy, I just prefer a vegetable diet and I never was a big fan of meat and fish to begin with. That made it easier for me to step into my new lifestyle.
