10 Protein-packed vegetables – Livemint

… quality of protein consumed. There are 22 types of amino acids, which can be divided into essential and non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, and so need to be consumed through food. “While there is no doubt that the proteins we get from animal products (meat, fish, eggs, dairy) are of better quality than what vegetarian sources tend to have, it is a big myth that vegetarian foods, particularly vegetables, are completely devoid of any protein,” says …

Let your children make their own eating choices – Parentdish UK

… Quorn for dinner because he’s concerned about his cholesterol, and I very much doubt his peers are protesting against slaughterhouses. They simply aren’t old enough to make an informed choice, and brainwashing a child into thinking that ‘meat is murder’ is just plain wrong. Like any extreme lifestyle choice – banning television, refusing kids sweets – it’s likely to backfire. As soon as those apron strings are loosened, little Johnnie’ll be in the queue …

Now is the best time for some greens

… making, a trend no doubt encouraged by our dependence on bottled dressings and pre-prepped greens. We can do better. So with dropping temperatures, I’m adding ever more salads to the menu, wielding the season’s frost-sweetened, intensely flavoured greens — collards, cabbage, mustards, chicories and, yes, kale — to restore some glamour, and perhaps some respect, to the salad course.

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.

EarthTalk: Meatless substitutes expand as more people go vegetarian

Producing one kilogram of beef requires 150 square meters of land and 15,000 liters of water, most of which is used to grow feed for the animal. That same kilogram generates 27 kilograms of climate-altering carbon dioxide, the equivalent of driving a car more than 100 miles.
