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 …

Montreal Restaurant Serves A Classic Poutine Even Vegetarians Can Eat | MTL Blog

By Max Joseph · February 16, 2015 · Last week, I wrote on how Montreal’s adherence to chicken gravy is keeping it from becoming the undisputed poutine capital of the world it deserves to (and easily can) be.

Although the restaurant advertises themselves primarily as a fish & chips joint, their premiere offering is …

Is a vegetarian diet good for your health? Research says yes – Journal Inquirer: Harlan Levy Consumer Diary

A friend of mine has a problem: She gets sick a lot. I mean a whole lot. It seems as if she’s sick with a bad cold or a sinus infection or a bronchial thing once a month. She’s also a vegetarian, gets no exercise, and is clearly gaining too much weight. I sure as hell would never say any of this to her, but I am bothered. I wondered if being a vegetarian is part of the problem. So I did some research and also asked University of Connecticut nutritional sciences Professor Hedley Freake (yes, …

Derek Rielly: Becoming a vegetarian… again

He was a bigger than average fish, some kind of striped tropical creature cooped up in an aquarium in the Spanish city of San Sebastian. A pretty thing that caught the eye. And as I roamed the dark halls he followed. I’d stop. He’d stop. I’d stare. He’d…well sure, fish don’t blink. But you get the picture. I’m not one for epiphanies, generally, but as I looked at that damn fish I said aloud, “I will never eat one of you bastards ever again!” It …

Be a vegetarian to stop cruelty (From Worcester News)

I am a vegetarian (most of the time), but I do not feel that my choice makes me superior to others who choose to eat meat. However, I do feel that animals that are farmed and eaten for our benefit, should at least be treated humanely. It is vital that we remember that animals do feel pain – to assume they don’t is to kid ourselves. So, I’m not against eating meat (though I prefer not to) but I am against cruel practices that are often allowed in the pursuit of higher profits. …

6 Vegetarian Crock-Pot Recipes So Good, You’ll Gladly Skip The Meat | Bustle

A good dinner doesn’t need meat to make a statement. It speaks for itself. And, if we’re being honest, it’s usually a hell of a lot easier to put together than a platter that requires deboning, browning, sautéing, or deveining. A vegetarian meal made in the Crock-Pot? That’s a serious no-brainer. A vegetarian dish packs as much — if not more — protein, vitamins, and grains than your average run-of-the-mill, meat-filled one, and takes just about half the cooking time. And eating …

Personal chef prepares sumptuous meal sans turkey

My husband and I became pescetarians, or vegetarians who eat seafood, two years ago as a result of my columns on vegan chef Roni Shapiro (September 2012), on the Catskill Animal Sanctuary (March 2013) and my eye-opening research into food industry practices.

GP’s view: Vegetarianism

Is vegetarianism healthier than a carnivorous diet? Dr Cindy Pan gives her view. The most honest answer I can give to this is, “It depends”. If being a vegetarian means you eat a lot of vegetables and fruits as well as plenty of lentils, wholegrain cereals, nuts, tofu, eggs, low-fat dairy products and other nutritious foods, which make up for the lack of meat and fish, then yes, this could result in a very healthy diet. But it would not necessarily be healthier than a similar diet …

Wines in US Not Required to List Animal Byproducts

Winemakers and merchants overseas are increasing transparency on labels in an effort to help vegetarians and those with severe allergies find wines made without animal byproducts. What?
