Leaving Nemo Out of Sushi – The New Indian Express

… palatable to them. The idea is to familiarise people with sushi.” There seem to be persistent efforts from the restaurateurs and chefs to go beyond the basic sushi rolls. “We, at Pan Asian, do authentic and contemporary sushi. We do a Sarada roll with Japanese pickled vegetables. The vegetarian California roll is a hit with diners and a Plum Maki is relished by many. We also have gluten-free rolls in which we wrap the ingredients in rice paper and we don’t use soy in that,” says …

Vegetarian Barbecue – Food – Forward.com

By Jean Hanks | July 9, 2015 Whenever I’m invited to a summer barbecue, for a few seconds, I panic: What am I going to eat? As a pescatarian, I know I’m going to be one of the few people, if not the only person, not partaking of the traditional hamburgers and hotdogs. I also know that it’s unlikely, especially if it’s a potluck, that the table will be overflowing with healthy salads. And I don’t relish the idea of taking up space on someone else’s grill for my veggie fare. So before …

What Meat Eaters Get Wrong About Vegetarians | TIME

By David Wolpe | July 6, 2015 We’re not all self-righteous I was 20 years old and working on a political campaign when I first visited a slaughterhouse. There I saw dead chickens swinging like pale acrobats on a conveyor belt suspended over a vat, and I met a man who called himself, with only a hint of irony, a “goop scooper.” I walked out with the vague idea that I might become a vegetarian one day. Years later, I stopped eating meat and chicken. On rare occasions, I still have fish, …

… “As far as meat is concerned, many parts of the world which have areas of very long life expectancy do eat lots of vegetables but they do also eat meat too,” he continued.

Weeknight vegetarian: Peel a plantain, elevate a taco | canada.com

By Joe Yonan | April 21, 2015 A day in which I learn a new taco-filling idea is a good day. I have my standbys, including lentils and other beans (black, pinto and garbanzo), squash, greens, corn, poblano peppers, sweet potatoes, eggs — in various combinations and with countless nuts, cheese, herbs, condiments and other add-ins. And I love them all. But when you make tacos as often as I do — at least twice a week — any revelation is cause for celebration, or at least gratitude. The …

Meet the Butcher—and Former Vegetarian—Who Now Specializes in Humane Slaughter | TakePart

… and requires that cattle, pork, and other livestock be “rendered insensible to pain” before death. (Chickens and turkeys are not covered under the law.) Unsurprisingly, plenty of players in the food chain aren’t satisfied with the USDA’s concept of humane—even if the Temple Grandin–designed Animal Welfare Audit has become the industry standard. But just as some farmers have pushed beyond the USDA standards for organic agriculture, others are taking the idea of humane slaughter well …

By Avery Yale Kamila, Posted March 18 2015 Sam Moore never knew any vegans until he went vegan himself two years ago. “Veganism is a very new idea to a lot of people, including me,” said Moore, 35. The Maine native, who now lives in North Conway, New Hampshire, took the vegan plunge after watching YouTube videos of cooks preparing raw food. “I tried to do some of the things they were doing, but it was cumbersome and difficult,” Moore said. Then he discovered the growing number of …

Empowerment of a vegetarian lifestyle — Sonoma State Star – The university’s student-run newspaper

… documentaries like “Food Inc.” and “King Corn” I am satisfied with my decision to not fill my body with the type of meat that is showcased  in these films. Growing up in a family where meat was always the main course of a meal and then choosing to become a vegetarian was definitely a big decision. Saying my family was surprised by my decision is putting it nicely, but that was at the beginning. They have now come around to the idea because they love and know that I know what I’m …

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

… who refuses to cow down to the family diet plan (sorry about the pun). What should parents do? How do you convince a meat-phobic kid to keep on eating Babe? Explaining meat to kids There are quite a few things kids pick up on the street, meat being one of the more benign evils. At some point, your kids are going to figure out that they’re eating something that looks remarkably like a pet for dinner. Most kids are totally cool with this idea, my three boys included. However, some kids …

Why I’m going vegetarian after seeing shocking Animal Aid film of UK abbatoir cruelty

… kitten with a broken leg who was abandoned in a busy souk in Essaouira. I boycott circuses and zoos where animals perform and am loathe to go on holidays in third world countries because I can’t bear to witness the abuse of donkeys and other working animals. I don’t eat battery chickens and try to buy meat with a known provenance, usually from a good butcher. I love the taste of meat and fish, but somewhere buried deep inside, I have always toyed with the idea of one day becoming a …

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

… and, you know, a casual life purpose. Vegetarianism promised me a sense of self I was desperately craving, and a set of principles I could believe in and share with others. Also, I really love my dog, so I was pretty on board with the idea of not killing and eating cute animals. Since then, I have been by turns a full-blown vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan, and bloodthirsty carnivore, only to wind up somewhere in the middle. My years of confused and ever-changing eating habits have made me …

Eating vegetarian with gnocchi | witf.org

As the holidays were approaching I decided to look through my cookbooks to find a few recipes that might make festive dinners. I found a simple recipe that a friend had contributed to the collection of recipes given to us at our wedding: gnocchi.  I love gnocchi and have often eaten it at restaurants smothered in a creamy vodka sauce.  I had no idea it was so simple to make, and now we’ll probably be having it for dinner at least once a week.

Be Vegan, But Do Not Impose Please – The New Indian Express

I agree with the sentiments expressed in this article. We all need to learn to respect the belief and customs of other cultures. No body is exclusively ‘right’. Taking this hardline approach is what has led humans into wars and persecutions. It is time for respect.  I know I will invite a lot of public flak for slacking off the idea of those jute-wearing tree-hugging types, the kind who bleed internally every time a venison is served up in the world. Yes, that was a stark …

… and founder of Tofurky, to ask him all about his now-iconic all-American veggie staple. Here are some key points from our epic conversation: How he came up with the idea for Tofurky: “I’ve been a vegetarian since 1973, and every year, when Thanksgiving would come around, there’d be nothing for me to eat—at least nothing really protein-y, nothing you could sit at the center of a table. There were gluten roasts, but you couldn’t cut them with a chainsaw. What we were …

Harley’s is a coffee house with heart – Falkirk Herald

… Run by mother and daughter Karen and Lynn Leckie, with Lynn’s aunt Yvonne Harley helping when needed, the idea to cater for vegan and gluten free diets came from vegan Yvonne who also bakes the vegan-friendly cakes and biscuits.

A tomato tart satisfies a craving when the air turns chilly — and then when the sun returns

… them cower. To the rescue, at least in my kitchen: canned tomatoes, once again. This time, rather than stew them for a pasta sauce or soup, I jumped at the suggestion in “The Best of Rose Elliot” (Hamlyn, 2014) to turn them into a tart. It’s a simple idea, with a couple of nice twists: cumin seed in the crust and eggs nestled into the filling, in the style of that North African dish I love, shakshuka Click here to go direct to this article on the Washington Post …

Learning how to be vegetarian without being a jerk about it

… identified myself by my adoration and consumption of shit beer and the extra-long, extra-chemical-filled cigarettes I left in ashtrays across the city as a calling card. Come on, dude. “Owning” the idea that you eat beef or pork or chicken that was not ethically procured isn’t cool; it makes you look like an idiot. It is that kind of mindless entitlement that comes along with a pro-animal diet that I find embarrassing, though I am equally guilty of it. My internal monologue has …

Animal Protein vs. Plant-Based Protein

… advertising propaganda being fed to every child. They have been selling the mistaken idea that we need meat, dairy, and eggs in order to be properly nourished. We have thus been programmed with incorrect and dangerous information. Almost all Americans get more than enough protein daily. In fact, the average American consumes over 100 grams of protein, about 50 percent more than the recommended daily amount. Yet too many of us, including athletes, fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders, dieters, and …
