National Vegetarian Week

It is National Vegetarian Week, and for all the vegetarians this is a brilliant chance to showcase all the brilliant tastes and ingredients you can use to make delicious veggie meals.

The stigma of being a vegetarian is only eating vegetables however this week is a fantastic chance to find out about all the different ingredients you can get and make meals that will not make you miss meat!

The event this year is touring around the UK visiting a different city every day giving away free pizza slices, the aim is to show how food can bring people together and is a brilliant way for people to share their talents, recipes and veggie ideas. The locations are listed below and you can get your free slice between 11.30am and 14.30pm;

18th May – Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Northumberland Street South

19th May – Glasgow, Sauchiehall Street

20th May – Belfast, SS Nomadic, Titanic Quarter

21st May – Liverpool, Church Street

22nd May – Leicester, Humberstone Gate West

23rd May – Reading, Broad Street

24th May – Cardiff, Working Street

The week is sponsored by ‘Nothing But’ who make scrummy snacks made from real and healthy ingredients. The simple ingredients they use means you are getting so much goodness in a bar or snack pack but in an extremely tasty way. The snacks that they make count as 1 of your 5 a day and you can have them as a breakfast, snack or towards your lunch for a lovely treat.

For more information on the events happening this week and to download your very own toolkit to help you organise what you want to do to celebrate, head on over to their website here to get the full lowdown.

Searching through their website is really interesting and I have stumbled across the recipe page, as a meat eater, you can hardly tell that these meals are meat free and I will most definitely be trying some of these out over the course of this week. Here is a quick showcase of my favourite ones I have picked out from their page…..
