7 ways to make family dinners work when your child is a vegetarian – The Washington Post

By Aviva Goldfarb | August 26, 2015 If your child decided to become a vegetarian, would you be a) Shocked? b) Thrilled? c) Horrified? d) Overwhelmed? When our daughter Celia was young, her favorite meal was steak. I’m not a big meat eater and as the main family cook, I only made meat a couple of times a week. But if Celia had her way, our dinners would have alternated between steak, pasta and chicken drumsticks. When Celia was 10, she dabbled in vegetarianism, inspired by a close friend and …

Is It Safe To Follow A Vegan Diet During Pregnancy?

By Tania Lombrozo | August 24, 2015 When I was pregnant with my first child, friends and family inevitably asked about my diet. “Are you sticking to vegan food?” they wondered, with variable admiration or anxiety. For some, the curiosity was about cravings. One mother told me she was irresistibly (and unexpectedly) drawn to hot dogs her third trimester; another confessed her sudden fascination with red meat. Surely, I’d crave things beyond the vegan sections ofWhole Foods? (I …

What Meat Eaters Get Wrong About Vegetarians | TIME

… but that grows increasingly less common as the years go by. I am not a vegetable evangelist; I happily coexist with carnivorous members of my family and have friends who worship at the shrine of cooked cow. But permit me to dispense with three myths about vegetarians on behalf of those who, like me, favor beans over beef. 1. Vegetarians are self-righteous. Friends, self-righteousness is a universal quality. Whatever habits people hold dear, they tend to discuss in moral terms. So yes, some …

As a Vegetarian Tourist, Here’s How to Plan Meals | Cara Spevick

By Cara Spevick | April 3, 2015 Since childhood, I have encountered people of all ages who are shocked to hear that I have never eaten meat. That’s right, I said never.

BY AVERY YALE KAMILA | March 25, 2015 When Kara Owens was a child, her father worked as a butcher. Needless to say, her attempts to go vegetarian weren’t successful.

In fact, her dad wasn’t just a butcher but the head of the meat department at the major grocery …

Still, I’ve encountered three repeat annoyances in my quest for the perfect burger: the burger tries too hard to be meat-like; the burger is too bland; and vegetarian-sounding dishes such as “tofu burger” aren’t really vegetarian.

Telling your kids they just ate Babe: Observations from a meat-phobic mom

By Heather Hale, Feb 27th 2015 My parents started calling me a “bleeding heart” before I can remember. I love animals. I love insects. I love the green grass that grows between my feet.

I’m a Montana girl, born and raised, and we eat meat around here – dang good meat, by most people’s standards. Finally, when I left for college, I cut meat out …

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 or “fed to death?” It’s been shown in numerous studies and documentaries that …
