Perfect for a slow-cooker, Tanya’s Easy Vegan Casserole or Tanya’s Throw It In The Pot Recipe is below … It’s super easy to make and I swear anyone could make it.
Most women who are peri-menopause, post-menopause or menopausal will tell you that weight gain can be a problem. Yes we all know about those exceptions who miraculously ‘look younger and better now I’m older’. But come on, let’s be fair most of them rely on good press to pay their mortgages! Personally if someone told me I could be rich and famous if l never ate chocolate again and stayed a size 8 forever, I’d turn them down. I love my food too much, I really do. Yup, I’m weak! This vegan casserole though is genuinely tasty and you can zhush it up with anything you’ve got in your cupboards.
I read a really good blog last week by a lovely lady ‘d’un certain age’ called Tanya Clark. She went vegan for a month as she’d been finding it difficult to drop a few pounds. She says she was completely blown away by the results. Almost ALL her menopause symptoms were lessened and she says that being vegan has had a profound affect on her health. The biggest surprise for her though was the weight she lost!
All the menopausal symptoms below were eased when following a vegan diet.
- Panic attacks
- Hot Flushes
- Head Pain
- Joint and muscle ache
- Low Energy
- Unable to lose weight
- Digestive problems (heart burn, indigestion, wind, pains in stomach)
Yes I love my meat and dairy usually but hey, what’s a month! So I’m going to try going vegan once I’m back from Cornwall. Well come on, I’m not saying NO to all those scones and clotted cream! See, I told you I was weak!
