A challenge to chefs: Make me a delicious vegetarian entree — or stop claiming to care about sustainability This post is part of Protein Angst, a series on the environmental and nutritional complexities of high-protein foods. Our goal is to publish a range of perspectives on these very heated topics. Add your feedback and story suggestions here. Vegetarians are out of luck again ... In his 2000 bestseller Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain swatted down vegetarians on behalf of the foodie elite: Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. A lot has changed in the last decade. But one thing hasn’t changed: Vegetarians still get no respect. These days, sustainably raised meat is the star of most hip restaurants’ menus. As I took pains to clarify in my last post on vegetarianism, I wholeheartedly support the shift to more ethical and eco-friendly meat production. Far too often, the popular new bistros and gastropubs springing up in foodie enclaves around the country don’t have a single damn main dish I can eat.

ited Nations Global Issues - Home Africa As the world’s only truly universal global organization, the United Nations has become the foremost forum to address issues that transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone. To its initial goals of safeguarding peace, protecting human rights, establishing the framework for international justice and promoting economic and social progress, in the six and a half decades since its creation the United Nations has added on new challenges, such as climate change, international terrorism and AIDS. While conflict resolution and peacekeeping continue to be among its most visible efforts, the UN, along with its specialized agencies, is also engaged in a wide array of activities to improve people’s lives around the world – from disaster relief, through education and advancement of women, to peaceful uses of atomic energy. This website offers an overview of some of these global issues, and links to other resources where you can get additional information.

Five packaged foods you never need to buy again What did you resolve to do this year? Eat healthier? Avoid processed foods? Stay away from GMOs? Stop buying products foisted on you by the man? I want to do all of those things, which is why I am so damn excited about this post. Photo: madlyinlovewithlifeNever buy soup I’ve always hated trying to shop for soup. If there are no animal parts in the soup, there’s usually lots of salt, fat, and additives, or a little GMOs just for fun. If there’s nothing objectionable in the ingredients, eating store-bought soup usually means taking a trip to bland city. The funny thing is, when you make soup at home, you don’t have to add any junk and it’s always bursting with the flavor of whatever vegetables you put in it. Campbell’s and their corporate buddies have somehow managed to convince us that making soup is a task better left to the experts. Just open your fridge and Google whatever you see in there followed by “soup recipe.” So get to it. Super soup tips 2. Here’s the method I’ve been using.

For most of us, shopping seasonally, taking a plant-centric approach to ingredients, and cooking from scratch have long been the only real ways to make a dent in the environmental impact our food has without going into debt. Lately, though, sustainable food advocates have begun really homing in on the cooking part of that equation. (It’s about time — we may all be alone in our separate kitchens, but at least we’re talking to one another.) And it looks we can all agree on a few things: Cooking at home saves money (even when compared to the least expensive fast food chains). And it takes time — so much time that some are arguing we should begin calculating an average hourly wage into the cost. I have a third option to suggest. This basic gadget is nothing special — in fact, it’s kind of annoying. 1) Cook when you’re not hungry. 2) Use a timer (duh). 3) Start with Sundays. None of this is rocket science.
