Recipes for the Semi-Vegan

Let’s be real- Mark Bittman is an American household name. His cookbooks often share a special spot next to Julia Child. His commentary can be found in the New York Times. This home cook and journalist (his words) is an outspoken food advocate. Bittman’s recipes are delicious and many are easy to make. Needless to say, I am a fan that finds inspiration in his creations.

In his most recent article, he writes about the infamous New Year’s Resolution (NYR)- weight loss. It is also the same NYR that is rarely full achieved. Bittman suggests adopting a semi-vegan diet; choose a dish or two from his list and incorporate them into the meal rotation. While they may appear to be shockingly simple, the complex tastes featured in each dish will satisfy your tastebuds and waistline.

You can bet that I will be trying some of these recipes!

Recipes for the Semi-Vegan

Author: 2birds1scone

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
