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

By Jessie Gray | September 10, 2015 I’m at a restaurant with some friends, and the waiter is going around the table taking our orders. Someone orders chicken noodle soup; someone else gets a ham and cheese panini. As he approaches me, I ask if there’s any way to make the chicken alfredo vegetarian. Of course there is, he tells me, and moves to the friend on my right. She looks at me with big guilty eyes as she orders a cheeseburger and immediately apologizes after the waiter moves on. This …

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 …

Best New Orleans Vegetarian Restaurants

  From Nora McGunnigle | July 2, 2015 It can be tough to be a vegetarian in New Orleans.

Inevitably, something’s probably going to die. But fear not, because thanks to the farm-to-table boom, there are more and more options for vegetarians on the city’s menus, and the meat-free diner can now expect a lot more than just …

Chinese classic goes vegetarian with ease

Mapo tofu, that aromatic dish of braised tofu with minced pork (sometimes beef) in a deeply savoury sauce, is a wildly popular menu item in many Chinese restaurants.

If you need dinner in a hurry, you’ll find it makes a rapid transition from wok to table. Though the dish is complex in flavour, the …

In fact, her dad wasn’t just a butcher but the head of the meat department at the major grocery …

Review: Little Beet Table turns healthy eating into chore – NY Daily News

By Michael Kaminer, March 10th, 2015 Dining with a dieter can be a downer.

20 years of Tofurky: Why people eat fake meat | FOX31 Denver

DENVER — Options for meat substitutes have come a long way since Seth Tibbott’s first few Thanksgivings as vegetarian in the 1970s.
