I don't eat as much meat as I used to. There are several reasons for this-the quality of meat in your basic supermarket is not likely to be very high; The recent stories of the treatment (not to mention all the crap they inject (hormones, antibiotics, etc.) of the cows in the big agro farms has totally put me off; and sometimes, too much meat is just too much. Occasionally, I still like a piece of meat, though, and will buy organic.
I'm not strictly Vegan or Vegetarian, but when I came across Vegan Lunch Box, I enjoyed it for the simple, yet tasty and diverse recipes; the easy to follow menu guides and the allergen-free index in the back. One of my favorite recipes is the Full Meal Muffins, a muffin packed to the top with nutrients sure to fill up the kids without the sugar overload.
And the desserts! Ah....the desserts. Cherry Chip Brownies, anyone?
