Really cute tops, by the way, well done!

You could spice up the steamed veggies a bit: Try peanut sauce, tomato sauce, make a curry, stir-fry them, eat them with pasta, potatoes, quinoa or couscous instead of rice, try different veggies each time ...
Salads are also quick and easy to make (To make them more filling, add nuts or seeds, or try pasta salad, couscous, etc.). 
Veggie soups (Leek& potato, cream of broccoli, lentil, etc.) are a good idea as well.
There are also different kinds of veggie burgers (if you dont like tofu there are alternatives like seitan), falafel, which you can eat with or without bread ...
I think Ive been eating more than ever since I became a vegetarian (and even more since Ive been starting to go vegan), just because there is so much great food that i didnt even think of trying as an omnivore :-).

This looks yummy - thanks for posting the recipe! Im kind of addicted to sugar, and when I started to consider veganism I thought Id be stuck with dark chocolate for the rest of my life  Sad, but Im slowly realising how many possibilities there are  Grin.

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: July 08, 2009 02:02:57 PM
Id never really liked meat or dairy, and when I was 12 I had a rather cool Biology teacher who told us about meat "production" and stuff, which made me go vegetarian at once ( My mum was supportive, but kind of coaxed me into eating more dairy). Nevertheless, for reasons I dont really understand any more, I went omnivore again when I was 24, and even started to really like meat  Undecided.

Luckily Ive been thinking about things a bit more this year and went vegetarian again some weeks ago, for ethical reasons as well as environmental. Ive also been avoiding products tested on animals and am planning to throw out my leather shoes and accessories gradually. Having seen Earthlings last night Im actually closer to veganism than Ive ever been.

Funny enough, the idea of EATING vegan doesnt seem as much of a problem to me as LIVING vegan. I dont buy eggs more than twice a year anyway, and the only dairy products I would miss are cheese, yoghurt and milk chocolate. But I do analogue photography (which isnt even vegetarian, when I think about it ...), I love my Lush chocolate lip balm, which has honey in it, and wool as a crafting material ... So theres some stuff I still have to think about. And in the meantime Ill eat lots of great food  Grin.

Hi,

Im a looong time lurker and this is my first post Smiley. During Easter break I went to Glasgow, borrowed a friends digital SLR (my own cameras are analog), took another photographer friend for company  and this is what I did ... two of my favourites from the Botanical Gardens.






If you like them, there are lots more on my flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kristina-s

Comments and criticism most welcome Smiley.
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Art college sucks! on: May 02, 2009 02:26:20 AM
Sorry to hear that art college put you off doing art ... thats what they seem to do a lot though. I did have a teacher who encouraged people to do textiles (I did textile sculpture) but then she was the one the others looked down at since she wasnt doing art, "just" craft. Anyway, if you miss painting you should start again. Theres no one to discourage you any more :-).

PS: Dear art school teachers, check this out and then tell me again that textiles cant be art.
