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 …

… as separate dishes for $5.95-$8.95, slightly less at lunch. At dinner, though, you can try a sampler of five ($14.95) served with baskets of fluffy pita. It includes hummus, baba ghanoush, dolma (grape leaves stuffed with onions, currants and pine nuts), the soslu patlijan eggplant dish and my favorite thing on the menu, ajili ezme, a sharply spicy red pepper-tomato dip with chopped walnuts.

Bengal’s sweet and spicy flavours – The Hindu

From TheHindu.com | June 20, 2015 Think mustard oil and the first thing that comes to mind is Bengali cuisine. A quintessential part of Bengali food, you can never separate mustard oil from the dishes. And then comes the distinct aroma of tempering. The ‘Big Bong Theory’ is something like this – if you don’t use the right ‘phoron’ (seasoning used for tempering) for the particular dish, you can never get the perfect taste, explains Chef Bulai Swain of Euphoria Fine Dining …

Food for Thought: ‘Vegetarian’ shouldn’t scare you off

… without putting on the “vegetarian” label. I mean, when you think of Squash Ravioli with Sage and Hazelnut Browned Butter Sauce, you don’t think, “I can’t eat that. There’s no meat.” Same thing when someone offers you Spinach with Garlic and Lemon, or Pan-Roasted Asparagus, or Pizza Bianca, or a Camembert, Sun-Dried Tomato, and Potato Tart.

Chickpea, avocado and pesto salad sandwich is delightful vegetarian recipe – The Winchester Sun: Features

… of Better Homes and Gardens magazines. Anyhow, cooking dinner for both my husband and myself is always an experience because I have to cook two completely different meals. Sometimes I’ll put the meat on the side so we can eat the same thing, and once in a blue moon, he’ll eat what I’m eating, but it’s rare. My smashed chickpea, avocado and pesto salad sandwich this week certainly did not appeal to him. I was a little hesitant myself fixing it. My husband and I are expecting our first …

This is why I love being vegetarian | Stuff.co.nz

… chickens, so I do not give money to the egg/poultry industry at all. The way I look at it is that an egg is an unfertilised thing that would otherwise go to waste, so I have no problems with eating them so long as they are from my parents and not the poultry industry. I do drink milk, which I am not overly comfortable with, and I love ice cream and cheese. I’m not perfect, and I know that my money goes to an industry that also kills animals. I do plan on becoming vegan soon. It’s …

Why the paleo diet isn’t really paleo : TreeHugger

… interpretation of what our Paleolithic ancestors ate actually is. I’ve heard the counterarguments: “This is a Paleo-inspired diet! It’s more about eliminating processed foods from the diet than eating like an actual caveman.” Call it semantics if you will, but maybe the diet needs a new name. The real thing was nothing like the modern interpretations, particularly when it comes to the quantity of meat consumed. First of all, our Paleolithic ancestors were very flexible. This is a funny …

Ecocentric | Happy Chinese Lunar New Year – Share a Vegetarian Hotpot!

… cleaning of the house and, most importantly, the household’s family ancestral altar called “Ching Chen” (清塵). This cleansing of both the visible and invisible of one’s environment symbolically begins the new year with a clean slate, devoid of any of the previous years leftover detritus.

Are you tired of bone broth? Try this vegetarian sweet potato broth instead. – The Washington Post

… little part of you continues to think, “Isn’t it just stock?” and wishes everybody would just shut up about it, already. And the whole thing reminds you of why you don’t listen to commercial music radio anymore: Some perfectly catchy tune is reduced to the most annoying earworm ever just because some DJ has no imagination. Anyway, I don’t think that’s going to happen with another broth I discovered recently. I was flipping through “Soul Food Love,” Alice Randall and Caroline …

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

… about? I have no knowledge of diet or exercise fads), because, sure, that’s a totally reasonable response and not the sort of thing a spoiled child would do. In response to the story about the hatemail, GustOrganics started getting messages of (occasionally snarky) support from vegans and oh God why are we still having this whole stupid conversation. Let me start by making clear that you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more carnivorous than me. I’m pretty sure my bloodstream …

Is a vegetarian diet good for your health? Research says yes – Journal Inquirer: Harlan Levy Consumer Diary

A friend of mine has a problem: She gets sick a lot. I mean a whole lot. It seems as if she’s sick with a bad cold or a sinus infection or a bronchial thing once a month. She’s also a vegetarian, gets no exercise, and is clearly gaining too much weight. I sure as hell would never say any of this to her, but I am bothered. I wondered if being a vegetarian is part of the problem. So I did some research and also asked University of Connecticut nutritional sciences Professor Hedley Freake (yes, …

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 …

And it’s the same way with chickens too,” she said. “It’s just nightmarish, the whole thing, for me.” Karches said she decided to really examine her diet and nutrition. “I was really a junk food vegetarian.

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

Promoting a meat-centric diet for health reasons is one thing, but such a diet has planetary repercussions that can no longer be ignored. The Paleo diet is all the rage within the CrossFit community. For the past two years, since joining the local gym, I’ve heard countless conversations about why we need to eat like our Paleolithic ancestors, ditch the horrible carbohydrates, and eat meat, meat, and more meat. “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you bacon and that’s pretty …

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. I had just seen Food Inc. for the first time (an emotional cinematic experience for my 19-year-old self) and was ready to make a Life Change. That summer, I was still pretty unsure about this whole college thing. I had yet to experience that “ah ha” moment the brochures all promised, and I was searching for friends, an academic focus …

Master vegetables like a Gujarati | Residency | Life and style | The Guardian

… tourist magnet. It might have been the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi and Narendra Modi but it’s not as sexy as Rajasthan with its maharajahs and grand palaces, and it can’t boast perfect winter sun beaches like Goa. But there is one thing about Gujarat that marks it out from the rest of India: its incredible ingenuity with food, and with veg in particular. Nearly all of Gujarat’s 62 million inhabitants are vegetarian because of the age-old Hindu and Jain principal of ahimsa, which means …

Vegetarian Sandwiches Worth Writing Home About

… better than the aforementioned sandwiches. The great thing about vegetarian sandwiches is that every detail is considered. There’s no slice of tomato thrown on top just because. No, if there’s a tomato slice it’s because that red fruit is the star of the sandwich. And then, there’s all the cheese and hummus vegetarian sandwiches guarantee. Those two ingredients alone are enough to make any sandwich into something worth writing home about. Seriously, who needs deli meat …

Are you looking for a showstopping main course for the vegan guests at your Thanksgiving table? Try a really big beet.

Turnip the heat: The perfect vegetarian BBQ

… As an Australian, he knows a thing or two about what makes a decent barbie, and despite not being a vegetarian, he maintains that vegetables can give meat more than a run for its money on the grill. “One of the best ways to cook vegetables is to grill them,” says Dobson. “Simple grilled fennel, aubergine or courgettes spring to mind.
