Hi I'm Kylie, creator of Too Many Foodies. Welcome to my 'Flexitarian' food blog. 

 

The recipes you will find on here are flexible and versatile, making it easy to find tasty meals for those meat-free days. Or if you fancy a bit of meat on your plate then head for the 'Flexi-Tweaks' at the bottom of the recipe page where I offer a meat or fish-based variation on some of the recipes. Simples.

​

At one time or another in my life I've been vegetarian, vegan and a meat-eater. Nowadays, I'm enjoying a more plant-based diet and eating a lot less meat and fish. I am what they call, a ‘Flexitarian’, and proud of it. Put simply, a 'Flexitarian' is someone who eats a predominantly plant-based diet but will eat meat and fish occasionally. That just about sums me up. 

 

The ‘Flexitarian’ diet has been growing in popularity as we become more aware of the impact eating a lot of meat has on our health, the environment and not forgetting the animals. Find out more on my blog, Have you Steak and Eat It. For me, I know I feel so much healthier eating this way. And like many of us, I'm very concerned about the state of our planet so if there's any way I can reduce my carbon footprint then I'm in!

​

Too Many Foodies has been running since the Autumn of 2017.  I always wanted to share my recipes with with the world but didn't have a clue how to go about this. Then I moved to Bristol, which is arguably the foodie capital of the UK outside of London - bold claim! It's not hard finding inspiration on every street corner of the city. 

 

Often described as a 'small city with a big city feel', Bristol is full of buzzing indpendent cafes and restaurants catering for all diets and influenced by cuisines from around the world. There's a massive trend of ethical, sustainable and locally sourced food produce, and zero waste initiatives. And I would go as far to say it's a 'Flexitarian' city with creative and ambitious plant-based options available at most food outlets. No longer are vegans and vegetarians the poor relation. Even meat-eaters are having a go and loving it.

​

I have always loved cooking from scratch ever since I was child. I find it relaxing, therapeutic and where I can express my creative side. Cooking is definitely in my blood. I was taught an intuitive style of cooking by my mother and grandmother. Handfuls of this, pinches of that, and always tasting and adjusting as I go along. This experimental way of cooking has set me up to develop my own recipes the way I like to cook. 

 

It's my vision that we, as human beings, change our approach to cooking and eating. Rather than a piece of meat getting all the limelight, let beautiful plant-based foods take centre stage. The best way to do this is to head down to your local green grocers or farmers market and see what veg is in season. Then base your meals around that vegetable, whether you add meat to it or not. Let meat be the after-thought for a change, and give vegetables their heyday. There are so many ways to be 'Flexitarian'. Find out more on my blog post, 9 Ways to be Flexitarian.

​

Make no mistake, Too Many Foodies is not intended to preach to you about what you should and shouldn’t eat. And it most certainly is not about food deprivation. Its designed to make eating less meat easy and desirable, but with the flexibility to add meat or fish if that's what you fancy. Surely something that promotes good health, helps the environment and is kinder to animals has to be a winner.

 

Cook, Eat & Enjoy​!
