Critter News

Ezra Klein talks about the lack of vegetarian options at a restaurant he attended. Why do people assume that vegetarians eat nothing but vegetables? But this is another example of the general ignorance displayed in restaurants and cooking shows like Top Chef. Tags: restaurants vegetarian food This is an article that really hits the mark.

I know some people won't read this piece simply because Ezra Klein is not vegan or even vegetarian, but I think he makes some excellent points.

Gordon Ramsey Disappoints Me

Critter News

But, according to my husband, the guy hates vegetarians and won't allow his daughter to marry one. Tags: cooking food I know, I know, I shouldn't be surprised.

Usually I say that when people start eating healthy vegetarian food, they WON’T miss meat, but my dad was just such a meat lover that I didn’t know if that would be the case.

New Book on Animal Rights Activism

Critter News

The most constructive part of the book (and possibly the most shocking to those who are only peripherally familiar with the vegetarian movement and who might therefore expect radicalism) is the authors' discussion of tolerance in all activities. For instance, they caution that if "we're at a restaurant and there's a veggie burger on the menu but we give the server the third degree about the ingredients or about how it was cooked, we're most likely doing more harm than good."

On Talking With Veterinarians About Vegan Food

Animal Person

Home cooking for Violet was difficult because her carb/protein/fat ratios need to be consistent in order for her blood sugar to be predictable. I had to make exactly the same meal for her every day, so I moved to using Natural Balance Vegetarian kibble (note that the canned version is not vegan due to the animal source of Vitamin D3).
