French lawmaker is proposing all schools go vegetarian! • The Raw Food World News

… U.S., we have laws to protect adults or adolescents in the work place; yet, the USDA program to accommodate children with special dietary needs program does not consider religious beliefs as a part of the program.  In order to ask your school for accommodations, the program reports that you must supply a doctor’s note and focuses more on allergies.  Many schools are kind enough to accommodate, if parents reach out to the school, and some schools already offer a diverse menu where children …

In search of Tokyo’s vegetarian bentōs | The Japan Times

By Ananda Jacobs | April 24, 2015 In the TV industry, bentō (boxed lunches) come with the territory, and, in my years here, I’ve seen nearly every type of bentō you could imagine. They are, however, often ordered in bulk and usually contain some kind of meat or fish. Still, to refuse a bentō on set (in favor of eating your own packed lunch or running to the nearest convenience store) means it will go to waste, so I’ve spent many breaks between takes picking through the edible bits and …

… fish — and it’s recognized as one of the five tastes, along with sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Umami “incites our taste receptors on our tongue to kind of pick up that savory note from foods,” Lancaster, the executive food editor of the Test Kitchen, tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.

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 also kind of a sissy, if you missed that. Forever, I fought my family on eating meat, not that it did me any good. 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 …

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. While I stand by my earlier argument, there is one restaurant in Montreal that proves the viability of a classic poutine without beef (or even meat of any kind): Comptoir 21. Although the restaurant advertises themselves primarily as a fish & chips joint, their premiere offering is …

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 …

Sweets fit for a vegetarian – Sentinel-Tribune: Cooks

For years, Jennifer Karches was a proud vegetarian. It sounds healthy, right?

Paleo eaters need to start grappling with issues of sustainability : TreeHugger

… in a way that restores soil fertility and reduces the need for water, pesticides, and grain feed. This kind of meat production is ethically superior to the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) that stock most supermarket meat counters. But the reality is that buying pastured, grass-fed meat is far more expensive than buying CAFO meat, and to maintain the sort of eat-meat-multiple-times-a-day model suggested by the paleo diet would probably push it well beyond the means of normal …

We just eat tons of the stuff, despite what we know about the health risks. via What will it take to downsize the American meat habit? | The Christian Century. …

Burger King bigwig goes for veggie startup

Sweet Earth Natural Foods touts its natural ingredients, like nourishing grains, plant-based proteins and vegetables.

That’s exactly what founder Brian Swette was, until he was introduced to the movement in sustainable foods. “I was kind of on the dark side of …

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’.

Yes, that was a stark …

GRAY: Vegetarian lifestyle provides many health benefits, saves animals – Daily Nebraskan: Opinion

… first and foremost in my heart is that by eating less meat, I cause less harm to animals. I’m an avid animal lover, which was more than enough of a reason for me to initially stop eating meat.
