I'm Steph, otherwise known as 'Hungry Harriet' through my food and drink blog www.hungryharriet.com. My happy place is eating roast dinner around the table with my loved ones because food and family pretty much make up both halves of my heart.
When I was younger, I lost one of the most incredible humans ever to grace this planet to cancer and I was look enough to call him my grandad, or my 'Gaga'. I've never known somebody love a good steak or roast beef dinner more than him so he would probably think me pledging to veg was crazy but I know he would support me all the way and more. Sadly, he's not the only one close to me and my family who we have lost or worried about losing in this way either.
Vegetarianism is a concept I have toyed with a lot over the past 12 months, for health, environmental and moral reasons combined. I have introduced a few non-meat meals into my diet here and there but never found the b*lls or the motivation to take the plunge. This is the perfect excuse to push my boundaries for a great cause.
Cancer is something that will unfortunately touch many of us in some way during our lifetimes. Whether it be losing a loved one or battling it ourselves, we can all unite in agreeing that it is one of the most difficult things anybody has to face. I want to do my small part in contributing to an incredible charity which helps provide even a little bit of solace for those dealing with cancer.
