It is not difficult to plan well-balanced vegetarian catering perth meals for a family, but catering for oneself can create problems. Some single people take great pleasure in cooking for themselves, but many find it a chore and rely on convenience foods, pre-packed meals or carbohydrate snacks instead. The occasional snack-meal, lacking in nutritional value, rarely does any harm because dietary needs are usually made up later in the day. However, if badly planed meals are eaten regularly, they can become detrimental to health. Even on a shoestring budget, it is still possible to enjoy nutritional sound meals. Think of the five basic vegetarian catering perth food groups, and see which foods can be bought in small portions, and which will store well. Eggs are cheap and can be cooked in a variety of appetizing ways. Cheese and yogurt can also be bought in small quantities.

Only vegetarian catering perth fruit and vegetables need to be bought regularly. Many recipes can be prepared in small quantities, or used for several meals. Salads are also good for individual meals, especially if they contain a protein food.

Canteen meals tend to be stodgy, pub snacks are usually inadequate and often high in fat, and restaurant meals are expensive, so the answer to a vegetarian catering perth workday lunch is often something eaten at a desk. A packed meal can be a nourishing stop-gap between breakfast and the main evening meal. Be sure to eat something at midday, or tiredness ensues and work suffers. A vegetarian catering perth packed meal doesn’t have to be a dull sandwich, nor just a bunch of lettuce leaves. Ideally it should include something from each of the food groups.
