GRAY: Learn to eat humanely, even if not a vegetarian | Opinion | dailynebraskan.com

By Jessie Gray | September 10, 2015 I’m at a restaurant with some friends, and the waiter is going around the table taking our orders. Someone orders chicken noodle soup; someone else gets a ham and cheese panini. As he approaches me, I ask if there’s any way to make the chicken alfredo vegetarian. Of course there is, he tells me, and moves to the friend on my right. She looks at me with big guilty eyes as she orders a cheeseburger and immediately apologizes after the waiter moves on. This …

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 …

For vegetarians and vegans, it’s a new world of appealing options – LA Times

… consumers who want to embrace a vegetarian or vegan diet but who also want to eat well? Never have they had so much choice. “It’s a real renaissance,” says Bob Goldberg.

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 …

By Supriya Sharma | July 4, 2015 When Rukmini Srinivas, then teaching at Queen Mary’s College in Madras, was first introduced to author R K Narayan by her husband in 1955, she had not heard of him or read his Swami and friends. “I had grown up with Thomas Hardy and Somerset Maugham,” she writes in her cookbook-cum-memoir Tiffin, adding, “and had not heard of R K Narayan till I visited Mysore.” But that meeting was the start of a life-long friendship.

This is why I love being vegetarian | Stuff.co.nz

By Danielle Calder, Posted 22nd March 2015 I’m a vegetarian for ethical reasons, although I plan on becoming a vegan in the near future. I became a vegetarian at 15, initially because I wanted to be unique: none of my friends were vegetarian, and I had heard that you lost weight once you went veggie. Well, I lost some weight, but once I discovered pasta I put it right back on! As I got older, I became more interested in the ethical side of vegetarianism. I don’t believe it is …

Seasonal Chef: Gluten-Free Spicy Vegetarian Chili

By Maria Reina, TJN Every now and then I go back and revisit a recipe, to see what I can do to tweak it. This past weekend I decided to make my Spicy Vegetarian Chili. Since I was going to be sharing it with our gluten-free friends I needed to make a few adjustments. In my original recipe I had  a combination of lentils, freekeh and farro.

The 7 Types of Vegetarians, Because There’s More Than One Way Not To Fry a Fish | Bustle

Here’s a light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek look at vegetarianism: I dipped my toe into the vegetarian pond the summer before my sophomore year of college.

That summer, I was still pretty unsure about this whole college thing. I had yet to experience that “ah ha” moment the brochures all promised, and I was searching for friends, an academic focus …
