One of the great blessings of the vegetarian diet is that it can free you from conformist eating patterns - ‘meat and two veg’, three-course meal and three solid meals a day regime. A spread of ten vegetarian cereals can become lunches, salads, breakfasts or light dishes and tempt the appetite and satisfy hunger at any time of day.
As we are all individuals, our dietary needs are never the same. Some of us may only be able to work efficiently in the morning if we breakfast well. Others, like myself, find anything solid at that hour induces sluggishness. The nutritionists exhort us to all have a sensible breakfast, but I know my body better than they do.
