Tell Us Tuesday!

Ashley (click the link above) is having a Tell Us Tuesday thing going on at her blog. All you need to do is go see what her question is, answer it on your blog and then leave the link in her McLinky. Simple....I think!

Today's question is How do you celebrate Thanksgiving every year? What are your traditions?? Did you have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner or a family potluck type deal?? Do you fight the crazy crowd at all the stores and go to all the Black Friday sales??

Well here in the UK we don't celebrate Thanksgiving  so I will be carrying out my usual tradition of going to work at 7.30 am....slogging my guts out all day in the lab and then fighting my way through the traffic at 5pm. I'll then cook dinner and sit down for a fun-packed evening of replying to emails and making more graphics :)

Now you're here, don't forget to go check out my other blog :)

Diets. The recession (again). Vegetarianism/pescatarianism

Sorry guys...its another food related post I'm afraid LOL.

Roday I wanted to talk about 2 things:
1 - people keep asking me how the diet is going...or not going
2 - pescetarianism/vegetarianism/anything related to it...and the recession again

First, the diet. Well I'm trying not to call  it a diet because well its just off-putting, but for the last couple of weeks I've done pretty good. I've had a couple of slip ups during each week, but on the whole I've managed a minimum of 5 portions of fruit and veg and also reduced my salt/sugar intake. So far so good...not sure what the weighing scales think yet...I'll let you know in a couple of weeks.

And now onto the other things, I was just reading on the news that in the recession more people have been staying away from meat and have become vegetarian (not eating anything killed at all) or pescatarian (eating fish). Personally I am not a huge meat lover, particularly if its processed meat, but I do succumb to eating meat most days. I generally stick to white meat though as I prefer chicken/turkey over the other meats. I'd probably eat pretty much vegetarian if I lived on my own, but I don't and it's just easier to cook the same thing. We do try to have a couple of meat free days a week now though, partly to save money and partly because its a good way of squeezing in some more veggies.  I was also wondering about trying to add in a fish day - I'm not a fish fan at all (unless it's hidden under batter or a layer of mashed potato LOL) but I guess I could grin and bear it for the sake of my health. Ok I'm rambling so I'll shut up now.

Today's know how I'm nosey...
Any one eating less/more meat/fish/veggies due to the recession. Any veggies or pescies out there? Or vegans?
