Blog Post Ideas – Organising

I know spring began in March.  It is now May, and as I write this at 8:45 in the morning with 65 degree weather with a possible high of 83 and all of my windows open. Here in south-eastern Wisconsin it’s finally feels and looks like spring. With that I finally feel like spring cleaning and organising my home and life. Just kidding about my life, its pretty organized. But I do have projects that I would like to start, like going through my clothes, cleaning up the closets that I dumped random items in when we moved in December or organise our storage bin in our apartment again because of all the random items I dumped in there.  I can only blame my self for that, but in my defense moving is very tiring.

As I was thinking of projects that need to get done,  I realised this would be a great blog post to do. So I made a list of different ways you organize.

Types of Vegetarians

For the last few months I have been making more of attempt to eat cleaner by not eating meat, and making healthier choices in general. So I as searched the internet for ways to do this, I came across types of vegetarians which I thought was interesting.

I knew there was different types but never really looked into it until recently. I also found out by reading more about vegetarianism I was kinda one already. Which I have now kicked it up a notch and don’t eat any meat, I do eat eggs and dairy but I don’t drink cows milk, I’m just not a milk drinker. For milk I drink almond, soy or cashew. I also try my best to buy organic especially when it comes to eggs and dairy. That’s for a whole another blog post.

Types of Vegetarians

Semi vegetarian/Flexitarian

“Flexitarian” is a term to describe those who eat a mostly vegetarian diet but occasionally eat meat.

Pescatarian

Pescatarian is forthose who do not eat any meat and animal flesh with the exception of fish. More people are adopting this kind of diet, usually for health reasons or to transition to a vegetarian diet.

Lacto-ovo-vegetarians

People who do not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal flesh of any kind, but do eat eggs and dairy products. Lacto means milk, and ovo” for egg. Lacto-vegetarian is used to describe a type of vegetarian who does not eat eggs but does eat dairy products. Ovo-vegetarian refers to people who do not eat meat or dairy products but do eat eggs. Lacto-ovo vegetarian, a vegetarian who eats both eggs and dairy products. This is the most common type.

 Pollotarian

This vegetarian is controversial, since a pollotarian avoids all other meat but does intake poultry and fowl. They receive criticism for even being categorized as a vegetarian at all.

Vegan

Vegans do not eat meat of any kind and also do not eat eggs, dairy products, or processed foods containing these or other animal products such as gelatin. Many vegans also refrain from eating foods like sugar and some wines. There is some debate as for honey, fits into a vegan diet.

Raw vegan

A raw vegan diet consists of unprocessed vegan foods that have not been heated above 115 F (46 C). “Raw foodists” believe that foods cooked above this temperature have lost a significant amount of their nutritional value and are harmful to the body.

Macrobiotic

The macrobiotic diet includes unprocessed vegan foods, such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and allows the occasional consumption of fish. Sugar and refined oils are avoided.

I hope you found this helpful or interesting about the different types of vegetarians. As I said before I never really knew what all the different type of vegetarianism where all about.

3 Easy & Tasty Recipes

Lately it feels like we have been in a rut making the same meals, spaghetti, tacos and chicken and potatoes. I have tons of recipe books and thought I should make more use out of them. I found a bunch of recipes that we plan on trying but thought I would share with you a few that we love so far.
