Vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner features sprouts and squash

… mushrooms and onions, drizzled with maple syrup and accompanied by oven-roasted Brussels sprouts. Lots of people think they don’t like Brussels sprouts because of their slightly sulphurous, cabbage-y smell. But oven-roasting them brings a crisp, salty exterior and a meltingly soft, sweet heart. You will be smitten, I promise. I love Thanksgiving dinner and wish we could have it more often. There’s no reason why not, if it’s quick and uncomplicated to prepare. Because the squash …

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

… consuming meat compelled me to completely stop eating it about eight years ago. For some people, that’s simply not a lifestyle choice they’re willing to make. Enjoying the taste of meat doesn’t make you a bad person. However, there are ways to consume animal products that are more humane and will alleviate a lot of that internalized guilt that comes with eating a once-living thing. The number one reason I don’t eat meat is because of factory farms. These are places where animals such as …

A vegetarian in France? Good luck with that … | Herald Scotland

By Fidelma Cook | May 30, 2015 There’s a doctor here who, while considered a superb practitioner of his profession, has – to put very kindly – no bedside manner. The Brits are, in the main, signed up to him because he prides himself on his spoken English. And indeed many of them have reason to be very grateful to him because he has undoubtedly saved lives by his immediate referrals to specialists. Like all doctors here, it seems, he has no age blindness and strives as hard to …

… levels, and provide high amounts of protein and important minerals including B-vitamins — all with virtually no fat. Perhaps the best feature of lentils is their texture. Their tiny round shape provides a chewy element to a soup, salad or veggie burger. The ideal texture comes from the variety of lentil you decide to cook with, and I’ve come to appreciate certain types for this particular reason. The black lentils, also known as beluga, and the green lentils, known as French lentils, are my …

Foods For Energy If You’re Vegetarian Or Vegan

… all animal foods. However, there are some differences in nutrient recommendations,” says registered dietitian Nicole Osinga based in Oshawa, Ont. Osinga says a perfect example of this is protein. Some plant proteins are digested less efficiently than animal proteins, because of differences in amino acids (the building blocks of protein) in them. “This is the reason vegan protein requirements are higher compared to those who consume some animal products.” If you’re a new …

Vegetarian diet cuts risk of cancers but eating fish gives extra protection | Executive Living | The Australian

… follow up for a longer period. According to the researchers, vegetarians might be protected from colorectal cancer not only because they eat less meat, but because they eat more plants. “Diets high in fiber are linked with decreased risk, and fiber comes from whole plant foods, so this could be a major reason why the risk is much lower,” said Dr Orlich. The vegetarian groups also ate fewer fatty foods and snacks in general than the nonvegetarians. This helps reduce excess levels of insulin …

Luxemburger Wort – Weekday vegetarian – an act of love!

Published on Sunday, 1 March, 2015 at 12:54 For some reason we like to put labels on others and on ourselves. Especially when it comes to food and diets. You are either a meat eater, or vegetarian. Maybe even vegan. You might have heard of the petition 478 here in Luxembourg calling on the government to publicly support and promote vegetarian and vegan nutrition. It’s a great initiative, and I hope it is successful. Especially thinking of how Luxembourg now is labeled one of the top meat …

Bone Broth, the Healing Soup From the Paleolithic Diet (Also a Vegetarian Alternative) | Sat Hon

… ripple. Now, being trained as a Classical Chinese doctor, I have the honor of being the keeper of the priceless clay pot. Within the Taoist five-element theory of relationships, the reason in using clay or earthen pot to cook derives from its theory of fire generates earth while it will conquer metal — in another word, fire has a benevolent relationship with the clay pot and an antagonistic one with metal. Conceivably, the heat from a clay pot may be gentler and more even than a stainless …

What will it take to downsize the American meat habit? | The Christian Century

… Agriculture’s dietary guidelines restrict their official purview to nutrition; they don’t address the other considerations that go into food choices. But last week, AP reported that this year’s update to the USDA guidlines might include a focus on environmental sustainability—specifically, as a reason to eat less meat. Well, not if the beef industry’s lobbyists have anything to say about it. And in Washington, they have a lot to say and powerful contacts to say it …

Vegetarian food? Meat-eaters have plenty to learn from it – Telegraph

Sales of paneer – the fresh, mild, Indian cheese – are up by 37 per cent from last year, says Waitrose. Halloumi from Cyprus is also on the rise. The cheese-buyer at Waitrose suggests the reason is the trend for “meat-free Monday”. These are props that carnivores use to make them forget the absence of meat on the plate. Eating more vegetarian food never seems so appealing as in the turkey-bloated aftermath of Christmas. But what the rising sales of rubbery cheese suggest is that we still …

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

… stereotype. I know that too. The reason I used it was to portray the extreme situation that we are currently tackling. Vegetarianism used to be a dietary choice—in my books it was the choice for people of poorly health—but a choice nevertheless. I didn’t ever judge anyone for it but deep in my heart I was always certain that a relationship with a purely vegan type would never work out for me. And these were drastic thoughts because I grew up in a household with a vegetarian Sikh father and …

Vegetarian gravy that won’t leave you missing meat – Longview News-Journal: Food

In case there is any doubt, let’s clear this up: You don’t have to eat meat to crave gravy at Thanksgiving. Unfortunately for vegetarians, much of the gravy served on Turkey Day is made using the drippings of the big bird. And with good reason; turkey gravy is delicious. But in the interest of giving vegetarians something to ladle over their mashed potatoes and stuffing, we decided to come up with a gravy good enough to serve to everyone, no matter what one’s preference on turkey. via …

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. But there’s more concrete information to back it up as well. Studies  show that all warm-blooded beings experience pain, stress and fear. Animals such as cows, pigs, chicken, turkey, ducks and sheep all feel distress and have the same kind of fear and pain as we do when being hurt and killed. They …

Weeknight Vegetarian: Quinoa strategies, cont’d. – The Washington Post

Every so often, I come back to quinoa. For those who remember what I’ve said about it before, this is perhaps surprising. But the fact is, it’s hard to escape this little pseudo-grain (really a seed), which tends to turn up just about everywhere you look. That’s especially true when it comes to vegetarian recipes. And for good reason: Too many vegetarians are really carb-etarians, and if you’re looking for foods high in protein and low in carbohydrates, sooner than later you’ll run …
