Mediterranean Vegetable Rice Halloumi Bake

Mediterranean Vegetable, Halloumi and Rice Bake | Recipes

Hi guys! I’ve been really struggling to think of good lifestyle posts in lockdown because everything I would usually write about seems so irrelevant. I was chatting to my dad on Father’s Day and he mentioned a meal he’d had recently that I thought I might enjoy. We looked for the original recipe but we couldn’t find it, so in the end I made up my own version of it. This is a super customisable recipe: all the vegetables are swappable, and so is the seasoning, so you can tailor it to your tastes, but this was what I did to make my version. It’s so simple and easy to do, so this is going to be a pretty short blog post, but no shame in that! Let me know if you try this, or if you’ve made a similar version of it before! I didn’t realise it was even possible to cook rice in the oven before I made this, but it was super easy and delicious.

Baby Steps: An Introduction

An Introduction | BABY STEPS

Almost a year ago, I decided I was going to try being pescatarian. I’d been buying only cruelty free makeup and toiletries for about six months already, and it seemed like the next step towards a more sustainable life. I decided I’d give up meat for Lent: it was a set time period, long enough to be challenging, but not so long that it would feel as though the end was never in sight. My main reason in deciding to continue to eat fish during my experiment was just that I knew I wouldn’t manage to eat all the fish in my freezer before the beginning of Lent and I didn’t want it to go to waste. It was surprisingly easy, and I think the only time I slipped up was when I forgot marshmallows weren’t vegetarian and had them in a milkshake.
