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.

Why Should I Buy A Panini Maker

By Chris Smith

Have you had a Panini sandwich before? Well, if you havent then immediately stop reading this article and go out and get a Panini sandwich. Okay now that you are back or if you stayed with me you know how incredibly good these sandwiches taste. These incredible little sandwiches are so good they are an international sensation. Panini is an Italian word and it is a small sandwich typically made from a cibatta bread roll and grilled. They are super easy to make and can be filled with a ton of different things. The popularity of this tasty sandwich has lead to a whole new line of kitchen appliance. If you are like me and already have too many kitchen appliances at firth blush you might think I dont need something else to clog up my counter space or cupboards. Take it from me I am a kitchen gadget snob and I own all of them, I really didnt need another gadget. However, after purchasing and using one regularly I would trade everything else in and keep the Panini maker if I had to. They are that good! Here are some great reasons why Panini makers are the must have kitchen accessory.

Perfect For Parties What can be more fun then entertaining guests in your home. It is so much fun to have family and friends over for good food and a night of laughs and fun together. However, sometimes it is also one of the most stressful things to do. There is getting the food, the cooking and the clean up and that can be a lot of stress. Well, here is one of the top reasons you should have a panini maker in your kitchen. It takes a big chunk of the stress of entertaining out of the equation. If you want to make things really simple have some friends over for a panini making party. You supply all of the raw ingredients like the bread and meats and each person can have fun making their own panini. Just be careful to buy extra ingredients because they are very addictive and most people will want more then one once they take their first bite. If you are looking to do something a little more elegant then you can easily cook up some panini sandwiches for appetizers. It is a big crowd pleaser and very easy to do.

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.

Build Your Own Healthy Version One of the best things about purchasing a panini maker for your kitchen is you will be able to easily make your own healthy panini sandwiches whenever you want. Often people are stuck to go out and buy a panini sandwich that is already made. Thus is very limiting as you can not choose your own ingredients and you can not make a healthy version if you want. However, when you have one at home you can feel free to experiment and try the hundreds of different panini recipes. Many people are not even aware of all of the possibilities that are out there to make. For example, did you know there are some incredibly good desserts you can make with a panini maker? Try to find that a your local store and you just can't. However if you have your own panini maker you can make tons of different things.

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.
