Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Super Hot Panini Makers Why You Can Live Without One

By Chris Smith

Panini sandwiches are probably the most perfect sandwich ever. If you haven't had the pleasure of trying one out yet then by all means stop reading this article and go get one. If you have already tasted the toasted goodness of a panini sandwich then you know exactly what I am talking about. These little sandwiches come from Italy and the word panini means little sandwich. They are typically made on a cibatta roll filled with sandwich meat and cheeses and then grilled. This article explores some of the reasons why you should own your own panini maker. I know you might be thinking not another kitchen gadget. I had the same thought when we first purchased one myself. However, I quickly fell in love with it and use it two to three times a week easily. Here are some of the top reasons you should consider getting a panini maker. Word of warning though these sandwiches are very addicting and once you get started you won't want to give up your panini maker for anything.

Great For Entertaining Come home late from work and tired and yet you have company coming over? I know this happen to a lot of us especially on Friday night. You are at your absolute most tired point of the week but you want to start the weekend off with some fun so you decide to invite over some guests. The problem is by the time you get home what can you serve them? That is where the Panini maker comes in. You can use the Panini maker in this situation either as the perfect main course or if you want to do something else for the main course then serve up some hot Panini sandwiches as appetizers. This is sure to warm everyone up and keep the party going and give you a second to catch your bearing and get things going in the kitchen for the meal ahead.

The Perfect Solution To Fast Food Are you sick and tired of eating unhealthy fast food that is bad for you and causes you to gain weight? I think many of us are unfortunately it almost seems like a necessary evil in the busy lives that we live today. However, there is a better way to do it. You can get a panini maker and easily make a few panini sandwiches in just a few minutes. If you have the ingredients on hand and keep them in the refrigerator it really is a no brainier. Instead of fat causing fast good you can have tasty and healthy fast food in just minutes. Not only is it super easy to make panini super fast it is also easy to make them healthy. This makes probably the perfect solution to the fast food roller coaster we often find ourselves trapped on.

Make Your Own Panini And Make It Healthy One of the biggest benefits to having a panini maker in your home kitchen is you can make the panini the way you want. If you are really into food and love to eat then the chances are good you are very specific about how you want your food prepared. Too much cheese, or too much mustard and the sandwich just isn't right. However, if you have a panini maker at home you can make it with the exact ingredients that you like and int he right amounts. Not only that you can explore with all different kinds of panini recipes. There are a ton of them online and in cookbooks everywhere. Unfortunately you often can't get a wide variety of panini at the store and you are locked into the way they make it. At home you can explore and come up with your own healthy creations.

While they might be called a panini maker, or a panini grill or even some might call it a panini press they are all essentially the same thing. Each one of those function in a slightly different way but they all make a great tasting panini in your home. The best things about having a panini maker is you can easily make your own healthy panini sandwiches, you can easily entertain guests and you have a quick and healthy option when you are rushed for time.
