My Chinese Style Vegetarian Lunch Box

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I bring my own lunch box to work at least three times a week.

I use the “lock n lock” glass lunch box.

Before microwaving it, usually I would de-froze it at room temperature for 5 to 10 mintues.

Next to my red rice is usually beans (black beans, chick peas, red kidney beans), scrambled eggs, greens (spinach, broccoli, choi sum, etc) and pickled vegetables for some flavourings.

Since the material of the lunch box is heavy, I get a medium sized one (600ml), whch doesn’t really hold much, so I usually snack at tea time or have dinner a bit earlier.

The One Book That Led Me To Vegetarianism — Skinny Bitch

One of the hardest thing about being a vegetarian in Hong Kong is that you got commented a lot. Many of them are well meaning, but most of them are irrelevant.

I got asked in the lavatory, in a salon, over dinner at family gathering, just all these random places when I reveal myself as not eating meat that, “Are you getting enough nutrients?” And you know what? Those people are eating processed food made of high fructose corn syrup, canola oil and all those weird stuff that they don’t know about. I mean, they are eating ham AND bacon AND SAUSAGES and they are telling me to be more healthy? Are you flipping serious?

I really wish I could spoonfeed them with some nutritional facts but since I couldn’t, I really hope everyone will grab a copy of Skinny Bitch. Brutal slaughter house exposed videos were convincing enough, but this book brought me some hard core food industry stories that truly compelled me to give up meat and processed food. So check that out. Even Victoria Beckham read it. Educate yourself people, and stop being misled by the misinformation around us and disinformation that big corporates want us to believe.

在香港的三個素食點

常常有人問素食的吾:「你食齋,出街有咩食呀?」

在此分享三個香港素食點。

1.爭鮮

新推出的素飯盒和素宴會成為外賣的平價選擇。吃仿魚生片不是代表吃肉的心在騷動,只是有點想念wasabi。

2. 八方雲集

本來跟這間只賣肉食的店舖絕緣,直到田園鍋貼或餃子加配麻醬麵套餐。

3. 7-11

吃杯麵時喜歡搭配HKD13的蔬菜包。能吃到五款以上的蔬菜啊!補充即食麵的營養不足。

現在你能說吃素很難找食點了嗎?╰_╯
