How to Become a Vegetarian, the Easy Way While being a vegetarian isn’t for everyone (and neither is Pamela Anderson), I talk to lots of people every day who tell me they’d like to become vegetarian, but it seems like it would be too hard, and they don’t have the willpower. But becoming a vegetarian, for me and for many others, is the easiest thing in the world. If you’re not interested in becoming vegetarian or vegan, please skip this post (and don’t flame me in the comments). But I’ve had numerous people, just in the last week or so, ask me to post about becoming a vegetarian, as I seem to have become a poster boy for vegetarianism (move over, Pamela Anderson!). So in this post we’ll look at some suggestions and tips for becoming a vegetarian without too much difficulty, and some reasons you might consider it. Why Become Vegetarian?
Roasted Cauliflower Totally addicting bar snack or nutritious side dish? You decide. I am completely fine with it being both. Incidentally, Desmond loves this as much as Paul and I do. Owlhaven This weekend we’re having a big crew of college students, friends of our sons, over for dinner. We’re making Ethiopian food for a special treat: injera (Ethiopian sourdough flatbread made with a grain called teff), alecha wat (mild veggie stew), doro wat (spicy chicken) and misir wat(lentil stew). Since the injera takes a couple of days to do, we started it yesterday morning. Spicy Thai Coconut Curry Even though we’re still in the thick of summer here in L.A., I just couldn’t kick my craving for some Thai-style coconut curry. You know the kind—warm, creamy, packed with veggies, and loaded with spice. Naturally, I caved and, blasting the air conditioning, sat down to a steaming bowl of curry and rice. I’ve tried many times to make curry at home and failed, but I finally formulated a recipe that is worthy of being shared. It’s very reminiscent of a panang curry that you would get at a Thai restaurant.
Vegan Shopping Guide It’s never been easier—or tastier!—to give your kitchen a cruelty-free makeover. Major health-food chains chock-full of animal-friendly fare are popping up everywhere, and mainstream supermarkets have become meccas for followers of meat- and dairy-free diets. The best part? Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes How about a couple of cupcakes for dinner? I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner?, I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market. Baby veggies fit in easily without having to chop them into smaller pieces.
Wheat Belly Buster: Carrot Flaxseed Muffins If you need a secret weapon to persuade that person in your household that life without wheat is still worth living, then pull out some of these delicious carrot flaxseed muffins. While wheat-free, low-carb bread recipes that are included in the Wheat Belly book can be a bit temperamental, muffins tend to be more forgiving due to their smaller size and less variation in internal cooking (a hurdle with wheat-free baking). The carrots provide beta carotene, the flaxseed provides a near-zero carbohydrate source of fiber to keep your family wheat-free and regular, the pecans provide crunch, and the spices and orange zest provide zing.
Disease Rates by Jack Norris, RD | Last updated: December 2013 Below is a summary of the research done on mortality and disease rates of vegetarians. It does not include cancer rates which can be found on the Cancer, Vegetarianism, and Diet page. dara (Raleigh, NC)'s review of Eating Animals This isn't as much of a review of Jonathan Safran Foer's latest book as it is a reaction to it--a reaction to the reactions of others, even. The title of this book garners a reaction from people who haven't read it and who may never read it. Just carry Eating Animals around for a few days and you'll understand. There's an assumption that a book about eating animals is going to tell you that it is in some way wrong to eat animals--whether for the welfare of animals or for your own welfare--and most people "don't want to hear it." We know something is wrong with meat today--with how completely estranged we are from the process that turns animal into product. We have that general feeling and we don't want the specifics.

Chinese Crispy Fried Tofu It feels like yesterday, but the memory is fresh. Eons ago, I happened to spot some "white slabs" sitting next to my all time favorite Paneer, in the aisle of the grocery store I frequented. See, I was this good girl who went shopping for my mom during the weekends, all on my own, so that my mom can relax her feet. At times I used to buy other stuff that caught my fancy apart from the list my mom provided.
