Welcome!

Welcome to Romeo's Food Lady! This blog contains recipes for delicious vegetarian food. Most of these are not MY recipes, just a compilation of great veggie food I've found from all over the place, usually tweaked just a little. It's intended to be a reference you can consult again and again rather than a daily inspiration. After more than 25 years of being a vegetarian, I know what tastes good.
Romeo's Food Lady is named after my friend and cat, Romeo. Romeo is not a vegetarian, but his Food Lady is. Enjoy!

Sugar Awareness

At the Today Tomorrow household, we've been trying to cut a lot of added sugar out of our diet this year.  Unbelievably, we found sugar in everything from peanut butter to spaghetti sauce to bread and even pickles.  These days when we eat sugar, it's "on purpose"...a conscious decision. 
Breakfast has been the biggest challenge, with lots of breakfast foods not just including sugar (muffins, for example), but many even featuring sugar (pancakes and waffles).  These days we just cover our pumpkin waffles (recipe here) or pancakes with fresh, in-season fruit.  It really works!  Add chopped walnuts to the batter, and you're all set.



 
Bon appetit!
