The quest for kinder cuisine

Off to Beautiful Bali!


Sunset over Tanah Lot

Over the next couple of weeks I will be posting from Bali and Yogyakarta, keen to explore Balinese and Indonesian cuisine from a vegetarian viewpoint. This will be our 5th trip to Bali over the last 12 years and I am greatly looking forward to the relaxing and rejuvenating effect that this magical place has always had on me in the past.

It’s been a challenging year so far which has left me somewhat drained, so bring on the renewal of energy and inspiration!

I was a vegetarian years ago when I was much younger, but it didn't stick the first time around. Relationships, apathy, lack of choices all influenced my slide back into eating meat. In early 2011, I heard about a book called "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer and immediately got myself a copy. Reading about the horrendous conditions factory farmed animals are forced to live under for their scarily short lives, really made me question whether I wanted to be a part of this going forward. A quarter of the way into the book my decision was made. I know my vegetarianism isn't going to change the world; my husband is a carnivore through and through and I don't expect that will change any time soon. I do however feel that most people would like to make more ethical choices concerning the food they eat, the coffee they drink, the restaurants they dine at etc. Many just don’t know where to start, which labelling to trust on food packaging, or just find it all too hard. So I'm here to share my own journey and to also learn from others who have made this lifestyle choice. Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Oh wow – I hope you’re having a great time (I’m sure you are!) I went to Fiji last year and loved it. So peaceful – it was my best vacation yet. And I’m heading to Bali next year. Hoping you’ll write a post all about your trip with advice on what to see/do when there. In the meantime, have fun! :)

  2. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog. Yours is beautiful! Have a fabulous time in Bali.

  3. Thanks ladies :) We had a great time indeed…back to reality now! A round up of what we ate in Bali & Java coming soon.
