When we talk about being “Veggie”

This is what we do everyday. We are not in a “diet” at all. We always have our piece of chocolate bar before going to bed and we love cake (carrot and cheesecake are our favorite). We are veggies for different reasons, one of them because we started eating less meat when we moved to London, and then little by little we quit eating it because we didn’t really miss it. We don’t say having a veggie diet is the best way to being healthy and keeping fit, because you can be veggie and eat junk food; Lots of processed food like crisps, cookies and candies are made without animals.

lydia berryIt’s true that we try to be as healthy as possible, our shopping list is based on fruits and vegetables (we know every kind of sprouts and berries). We eat clean, trying to do our recipes with less and natural sugar (like dates, prunes, honey, maple syrup), wholegrain products and legumes. It might be more expensive than buying a burguer for 1€ in a fast food chain restaurant. But eating like this is good and nourishing for our bodies and the most important thing: we don’t feel guilty anymore, we don’t count calories and we eat whatever we want at that moment

We don’t deprive ourselves of anything, we eat our homemade cookies, cakes and veggie burguers! The disadvantages are that it takes more time and you have to like cooking like we do!

We created this blog with enthusiasm, so we have the chance to share how we live and if you like any of our recipes you can try and do it by your own! They are very simple! (Everybody can do them, we are not the best cooks, we swear.)

With love,

Esto es nuestro día a día. No estamos a “dieta” para nada. Siempre tenemos que llevarnos a la boca un trozo de chocolate antes de irnos a la cama y nos encanta la tarta (la de zanahoria y la de queso son nuestras favoritas). Somos vegetarianas por varias razones, una de ellas es que comenzamos a comer menos carne cuando nos mudamos a Londres, y desde entonces empezamos a dejar de consumirla, ya que realmente no la echábamos de menos. No queremos decir con esto que llevar una dieta vegetariana es la forma adecuada de estar sano y en forma, puedes ser vegetariano/a y seguir comiendo comida basura; un montón de alimentos procesados como patatas fritas de bolsa, galletas y caramelos están hechos sin animales.

Es verdad que intentamos ser lo más sanas que podemos, nuestra lista de la compra está basada en frutas y verduras (nos conocemos todos los tipos de coles y bayas). Comemos limpio, intentando hacer nuestras recetas con menos azúcar y natural (como dátiles, ciruelas, miel, sirope de arce), cereales integrales y legumbres. Puede que sea más caro que comprar una hamburguesa por 1€ en una cadena de restaurantes de comida rápida. Pero comer así es bueno y nutritivo para nuestros cuerpos y lo más importante: ya no nos sentimos culpables, no contamos calorías y comemos lo que nos apetece cuando queremos.

No nos privamos de nada, comemos nuestras propias galletas, tartas y hamburguesas vegetarianas! Los inconvenientes son que implica más de tu tiempo y que te tiene que gustar cocinar como a nosotras!

Creamos este blog con entusiasmo, así podemos tener la oportunidad de compartir como vivimos y si te gusta alguna de nuestras recetas puedes intentar hacerla por tu cuenta! Son muy sencillas! (Todo el mundo puede hacerlas, no somos las mejores cocineras, lo juramos!).
