Welcome to Veggie Yogi—a place where you can find healthy and easy-to-make vegetarian recipes.
I’m ideally suited to write this blog because I’m not a sophisticated cook. 🙂 If I can make it, anyone can make it! A year ago when I started, I had maybe 5-6 trusty favorite recipes that I made all the time and that was about it. Having friends over for dinner would cause me to break out in a cold sweat! Now I’m happy to say, I’m much more comfortable and creative in the kitchen, and here you’ll find a great collection of tasty dishes certified by me to be easy-to-make and healthy!
So why is eating healthy important to me? My Dad had a heart attack when he was in his forties, so I’m very aware that eating well is an important factor in living a long and healthy life. You’ll notice in my recipes that I avoid salt. Feel free to add salt if you wish. I simply choose not to because we get so much salt in our diets without even trying. I also try to avoid a lot of fat—particularly trans-fats, sugar, and white flour.
So why am I a vegetarian? I practice Kriya Yoga and have been a student of Paramahansa Yogananda since 1999. As a result, I choose to follow a vegetarian diet and have for many years. At first I found it challenging, but today there are lots of great options available to vegetarians and it’s easy to have fantastic meals without the meat.
I hope you enjoy the recipes here and that you’ll share your comments and feedback. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wish you “food, health and prosperity for the body, efficiency for the mind, and above all love and wisdom for the soul!”
