Featuring Lydia from Flexitarian Kitchen

Isn't this 600 Celebration exciting?  The 600 Celebration includes a Giveaway, Product Reviews, Guest Posts and DIY Projects JUST FOR YOU!!!

Hello there! I'm Lydia from Lydia's Flexitarian Kitchen and I'm happy to be here on Back to the Basics where we're celebrating Mary's 600th post!

Applause! Applause!

At Lydia's Flexitarian Kitchen our mission is to provide recipes and tips to help those looking to reduce the amount of meat in their diet by using whole ingredients. Reducing the amount of meat we consume can be good for the environment as well as our health. By increasing the variety in our diet we're more likely to naturally consume the myriad vitamins, minerals and amino acids our bodies need to function with precision as we are meant to. By decreasing the amount of meat in our diet we reduce the demand for energy hungry and environmentally questionable agricultural systems needed to supply "cheap" meat. You can find more information about flexitarianism in this early post.
I like to cook food from a variety of cultures and that's reflected in the blog but there's more to Lydia's Flexitarian Kitchen than recipes. I stretched my blogging wings recently in a writing challenge and created a blog commercial (it was fun to do, but definitely needs work) and wrote about Six Things I Can't Do Without in My Kitchen. In addition I have a feature called Fit and Flexy that's devoted to fitness for people of a certain age and weight (like me). My blogging friend and Real Food Fridays co-host Courtney and I recently completed a Couch to 5K Challenge. Tapas Tuesday is a popular feature that draws from my husband's Spanish roots. There are tapas to suit everybody. Here's a list of some of my favorite posts, I hope you'll stop by and visit. Red Beans And Rice My Elimination Diet Journey Part One Besan Puda Incredibly Awesome Banana Nut Bars It's Raining, Now What? Eggplant with Honey and Feta I'm in the process of setting up a newsletter that will include content not available on the blog. If you think you'd be interested please click here to sign up!
