The vegetarian journey and eating out

*Collaborative post.

I went full vegetarian last year and the vegetarian journey has been an amazing experience. It was not something I planned. It kind of just happened but I am glad it did. Being vegetarian has changed my life completely for the better. I am now very conscious of what I do eat and I try to eat clean as much as possible everyday. The funniest part is I don’t miss eating meat or chicken at all. I was never a fish eater right from when I was a little girl, so no issues with that. However, unlike many vegetarians I know, going vegan is not on my radar. I love my free range eggs in moderation, so I don’t ever see myself completely going off that. The vegetarian journey has been effortless for me and I am looking forward to exploring more vegetarian dishes.

Speaking of vegetarian dishes, are you vegan, vegetarian or interested in plant-based dining options? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you are reading the right post. As the lockdown restrictions ease off, you may be considering getting out and about. If you are after cool dining recommendations for vegan/vegetarian restaurants or plant-based restaurants, here is one amazing Italian restaurant you should check out if you are in the City of London.

This restaurant is great dining option for those who love Italian food. The Vegan/Vegetarian menu is full of yummy delicacies. I spent ages salivating at the thought of eating many of the dishes, especially the Spaghetti Vegani roasted pepper and tomato sauce topped with toasted pumpkin seeds. It sounds divine!

This buzzing restaurant provides all day dining. It is in the City of London and there is outside seating available, so plenty of space at Sicily by Da Scalzo.  If you like the sound of this restaurant, you should check out SquareMeal website. It is a fantastic website for a variety of party venues, meeting venues, eateries, and wedding venues. As the lockdown restrictions ease, now is a great time to treat yourself or your loved ones to SquareMeal gift vouchers. There are over 7,000 restaurants and bars in London and the UK on SquareMeal Website. So there should be a dining option to keep you salivating. Booking on SquareMeal is a great idea because prior to booking, you can get all the information you need about the restaurants you are interested. The booking process is also very easy. Customers can make reservations online, over the phone, and via email. Also, anyone who books on SquareMeal website can automatically collect points (100 points per restaurant and 400 for a venue), which can be exchanged for luxury gifts from high-end brands.

I think this service is amazing especially for the foodies. Vegetarian restaurants are on my radar and I will be exploring a few this year. What do you think of Sicily by Da Scalzo? Have you dined there before? Will you be using the SquareMeal website? Are you vegan/vegetarian? How has the journey been for you?

 

Staying sane in the midst of chaos

This year has been a rollercoaster for all of us. It has been up and down pretty much from January and the chaos is just getting louder and louder. Many people are struggling and I can literally feel the tension in the air. It is important to stay on top of our mental and physical health. This is not the time to bury our heads in the sand. Staying sane in the midst of chaos takes a lot of willpower and determination. You have to be ready to fight for your peace or else everyone else will drag you into their drama.

Staying sane in the midst of chaos

Here are some ways to help you stay sane in the midst of the madness going on –

Limit your time on social media

I have to spend some time on social media because of my job but these days, I limit the time I spend on the platforms. Social media is a huge drain right now, especially Twitter. There are all sorts of things going on at the same time all over the world. It is exhausting to be online nowadays.

Switch off the news

I don’t watch the news and haven’t done so for years. If you watch the news and you find that you are struggling, I would say you should take some days off and see how you feel. I usually pick up important info on social media and that is good enough for me.

Listen to soothing music

Music is like food to my soul. I am forever listening to my Spotify playlists. My current favourite tracks are Enya’s. I love her voice and style so much.

Workout

I start my day with a good 30-minute workout session. It prepares me for the day ahead and keeps me feeling great.  I would be lost without my workout sessions.

Do something for you every day

With everything going, it is super easy to put ourselves last and be busy worrying about everything and everyone. It is important to do something nice for yourself on a daily basis. It could be something as small as reading a book, watching a nice movie, going for a long walk, or as big as buying that new handbag you have had your eyes on for months now. The choice is yours. It doesn’t matter what it is, the important thing is that it is something that feels like a treat.

 

The 3 dos for a healthy body mindset

Health is wealth, and we should always ensure our overall health is in a good shape. Having a healthy body mindset helps our physical and mental health in so many ways.

The 3 dos for a healthy body mindset
Eat quality healthy food

Eating quality healthy food is a very important tip for having a healthy body mindset. Like many things, you should always pick quality over quantity when it comes to food. Starving yourself to achieve the perfect body won’t end well.

Pamper yourself

Self-care is so important especially with all what we are experiencing all over the world. You should take out time everyday to pamper yourself. Falling in love with yourself and caring for yourself is the fastest way to achieve a healthy body mindset. Your body won’t look beautiful on the outside if you are not happy on the inside.

Exercise is good for you

Many of us know this tip but it really cannot be overemphasised. Exercise is really good for you. Apart from helping you achieve the right body and mindset, it is great for your mental health. A quick 30 minutes workout will keep you in a good mood for hours. You don’t have to hit the gym to exercise. Gyms are closed anyways so best to find other ways to workout if you are not fortunate to have a gym at home. There are lots of online workout sessions you could try, going for a long walk or a good old run still works wonders. Dancing is another way to exercise. That is my current workout method at the moment.
