The effect vegetarians have on the meat of the matter

By Sylvain Charlebois | August 22, 2015  What do Confucius, Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci have in common? Well, not much professionally, but they were all vegetarians. Einstein once claimed: “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” With recent record meat prices, some might wonder if, all ethics aside, he had a point. On the supply side, consumers now have greater access to …

Lentils add protein and heartiness to vegetarian meals

… preferred varieties because they retain a firmer, chewier texture rather than softening entirely like some of the others. The wonderful versatility in lentils comes from the fact that they not only have a nutty, earthy flavor on their own, but they also absorb the flavors of the foods and seasonings they are cooked with. I cook them in vegetable stock alongside carrots, onions, garlic and dried chiles. At this point, I may turn them into a hearty stew by adding crushed tomatoes, cumin and other …

Foods For Energy If You’re Vegetarian Or Vegan

By Arti Patel | April 6, 2015 At some point in their lives, vegetarians and vegans have all been asked how they keep up their energy levels without meat in their diets. And because energy is essentially measured in calories from protein, fat, and carbs, it can get tricky to find the healthiest foods that will also give you a natural boost. “Total energy, or calorie, needs would not differ between vegans — someone who eats only plant foods — and vegetarians — someone who may not avoid …

“Vegetarian” Cocoa Puffs: Boston School Cafs on the Front Lines of the Food Wars – NPQ – Nonprofit Quarterly

… grains, protein and a full serving of vegetables. This was thanks to a longstanding loophole: Rather than count the two tablespoons of tomato paste on a serving of pizza as two tablespoons of tomato paste, they could count it as eight tablespoons of tomatoes, the theory being that at some point before being processed, the two tablespoons had existed in the form of several whole tomatoes.” To finish reading this article, click on this link: via “Vegetarian” Cocoa Puffs: Boston …

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 …

Vanilla makes vegetarianism the new Black

… Dargue and nurse-turned-front-of-house-manager Conroy’s passion for the business. But it wasn’t always like this. Vanilla Black’s message is progressive: it satisfies a meat eater’s palate without the need for any meat or fish and prides itself on omitting lentil bakes, vegetable lasagne or any other veggie clichés. Establishing a customer base, that understands the restaurant’s ethos and, more to the point, one that wanted it, was tough, however. The restaurant also relocated to …

Why the paleo diet isn’t really paleo : TreeHugger

… one, because there’s nothing quite so inflexible as a dedicated Paleo eater! My dinner party club pretty much died when several members became Paleo, others went vegan. “But that’s not Paleo!!” you’ll hear people shriek. And yet, researchers Ken Sayers and C. Owen Lovejoy, who study primate and human evolution and anthropology respectively, point out that humans’ evolutionary success is due in large part to their dietary flexibility, even if it means eating insects, half-decomposed …

This Meat-Eaters vs. Vegetarians/Vegans Shit Needs to Stop

… is about 90% bacon grease at this point. And yeah, if a restaurant I liked decided to go completely meatless, I’d be a little sad. What I wouldn’t do is throw a hissy fit and start sending the restaurant angry e-mails. There are plenty of other restaurants out there, and I am not and should not be that important to them because it’s their restaurant. As long as the restaurant is clear about what sort of place they are now (e.g. whether or not they are vegan/have vegan options), …

… which is somebody who is trying to reduce the amount of meat in their diet,” Warren said. The point isn’t to argue semantics. It’s to recognize that there are all sorts of ways to cut down on the amount of meat in your diet, and it’s OK if more restrictive diets don’t work for you — especially in meat-loving Texas. via Vegetarianism 101: Make your transition a slow one – San Antonio Express-News. …

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

… and if I didn’t know, there is no way I’d have guessed it was an animal produce free cake. I admit, I was beyond impressed. The cafe was bustling and it’s clear that in under a year, Harley’s has found its spot in Falkirk’s busy cafe scene. With a focus on community, the cafe is a drop off point for Falkirk Foodbank and operates a suspended coffee scheme, allowing customers to buy food and drinks which are given to those less fortunate. The cafe is open Tuesday to Sunday and hosts …

Chatting with Karen Page, Author of The Vegetarian Flavor Bible: Food Network | Healthy Eats – Food Network Healthy Living Blog

… A lot of people might not know that the first vegetarian restaurant opened in Chicago in 1900 (!). Now everywhere you turn, from Michelin-starred chefs to fast-food restaurants, you can find vegetarian options. Why do you think menus have shifted in this direction in recent years? It’s an interesting intersection of a lot of different trends that are exploding at this point in time. One is the history of vegetarianism (which is in the book) — it is absolutely fascinating how long people have …

Aglaia Kremezi: Mediterranean Vegetarian Feasts

… certainly have more than a dozen pictures to show for it. Like so many Mediterranean cooks, Aglaia isn’t a vegetarian, but vegetables dominate her cooking, as they do the healthy cooking of Greece and the rest of the Mediterranean. She points out in her introduction that though the variety of vegetables may be limited, there are so many different ways to cook them and flavor them, that they are never boring. The point is learning that the same zucchini can make such different dishes when it is …

Vegetarian lifestyle good for environment – The Morning Call

All humanity is at the point of having to make a very difficult choice. We either end our consumption of animal foods or face two consequences: the planet not being able to feed people sufficiently to maintain good health into the future, and the destruction of our environments that have provided for life for hundreds of millions of years. Here’s the present situation and future expectation. We have to recognize that the world has an increasing number of people who want and expect enough …
