Spain gets taste for greens as vegans, vegetarians and vegivores flourish | Life and style | The Guardian

The Smiths’ Meat Is Murder  might seem the perfect soundtrack for a vegan festival, but it’s not hard to see why the DJ replaces it halfway through with something more upbeat. Morrissey’s accusatory vocals don’t fit the ambience of a sunny day on Spain’s laidback east coast. Although we’re at an old cigarette factory in a slightly rundown suburb of Alicante, the atmosphere is more like a village fete than a radical meeting. In front […]

11 Make-Ahead Vegetarian Meals | Food52

Now’s the time of year when your friends are looking for any excuse to be outside and enjoy good food, cold beer, and a warm breeze. People are inventing reasons to get together — one friend is hosting the “One Year Anniversary of My Housewarming Party” party — and you’re always expected to bring a dish. But when you’re busy working all day, you need food you can make the night before and grab from […]

Vegetarian tagine recipe will make believers out of carnivores | The Miami Herald

Since I grew up in a half-Sephardic household, traditional Jewish foods meant to me something different from what they meant to my mainly Ashkenazi Hebrew school classmates. Sephardim are Jews that settled in Southern Europe and Northern Africa after the Diaspora . Ashkenazi Jews are from Eastern Europe and Russia, and they make up the vast majority  of the American Jewish population. As opposed to heavily Russian-influenced  Ashkenazi fare, Sephardic food takes on a Mediterranean flavor, […]

GRAY: Vegetarian lifestyle provides many health benefits, saves animals – Daily Nebraskan: Opinion

A lot of people are surprised when they hear I’ve been a vegetarian for almost eight years. After reactions such as “wow really?” and “that’s a long time,” the questions start pouring out. People first want to know why I made this decision. Then, without a doubt, they’ll ask what I eat, as if meat was the only food group they know of. The reasons behind my adopting a meatless lifestyle are very personal and […]

Weeknight Vegetarian: A new technique for defusing those soy-sauce sodium bombs – The Washington Post

Most vegetarians I know have a soft spot for Asian cuisines. Vegetables are revered in that part of the world, which is also the birthplace of tofu and tempeh, two pillars of plant-based protein. Plus, cooks in Japan, China, Korea and other Asian countries have a knack for seasoning, and for creating dishes with interesting textures — two crucial (and often lacking) qualities in vegetarian cooking. The downside: Whenever I develop Asian-style recipes, I wait […]

Vegetarian recipe

MORE If you have vegetarian friends to feed, and they like tofu, you’ll score huge points. Today’s recipe can be served as a main dish or side dish salad. With this recipe, be sure to use the extra-firm tofu so it holds its shape and doesn’t fall apart after roasting. Other than a smidge of nutty nuances, tofu is bland. It soaks up the flavors of whatever it is cooked with, making it a prime […]

When There’s a Vegetarian Child in the Family –

This is an interesting article with cute images. Check it out. When a friend mentioned last year that her 7-year-old daughter had gone vegan, I stifled a sigh of relief. “Thank God I’m not raising children in Brooklyn,” was my smug little thought. What a fool I was. This summer, my 9-year-old returned from sleep-away camp a vegetarian. I felt her eyes on me as I frantically chopped up a defrosted chicken before dinner one […]

Being a teen vegetarian doesn’t limit options – Entertainment & Life – The State Journal-Register – Springfield, IL

Up until three months ago, I was a total carnivore. I loved cheeseburgers, bacon, steak and virtually all other types of meat. But one day my family drove by a truck full of chickens and my dad joked, “They think they are taking a field trip, but it’s off to the slaughterhouse.” It just hit me. I don’t know why, but it really bothered me. Don’t you wonder what an animal feels when being annihilated […]

Foods for prostate health – News –

CONSULTANT urologist Dr Robert Wan has said that a vegetarian diet is best for men trying to minimise their risk of developing prostate cancer, but, convincing them to go vegan is not the easiest of tasks, so men are instead asked to reduce their intake of red meat and increase products that have proven to be beneficial to the prostate. Diet and nutrition has been identified as one of the risk factors for prostate cancer […]

Talking to kids about vegetarianism – IOL Lifestyle |

Washington – My husband and 10-year-old son went fishing this summer, and upon their return my son bounded in with enough fish to feed our extended family of 14, and then some. While beaming, he declared that although he enjoyed catching fish, he absolutely would not eat the ones he’d just caught. He explained that he would happily eat a fish bought from the store, but not one he saw swimming in the ocean hours […]


Waterloo Region Record Liaison College Kitchener is the premier culinary school in the Kitchener area, a place where potential chefs can learn all there is to know about food preparation. One of the most important lessons they teach is that everyone has a different opinion on what constitutes good food and, more importantly, what foods are actually part of a good, healthy diet. Vegetarianism for example, is an ever-increasing practice for people who believe eating […]
