Plant-based dinners don’t always need to be fancy and all good-looking. The aim is to give your body the nutrients it needs. My dinner was focused on upping my protein intake so I had quinoa, broccoli, red kidney beans (all high in protein) with roasted veggies and black and white sesame seeds and nutritional yeast.

Drying Octopus in Plaka

Located on the northwest coast of Crete, you’ll find a little village called Plaka. It’s the perfect place to sample a Greek seafood delicacy – grilled octopus. You’ll see the octopus hanging out to dry in the afternoon sun, before being garnished with a few herbs and lemon juice, and then grilled over charcoal and served with ouzo to make a fine meze dish.
