A summer lasagna may feature vivid ripe tomatoes and basil. But the color for a springtime lasagna is undisputably green. Spring …

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.
