Hello, and welcome to my vegetarian food and lifestyle guide. As a vegetarian, I am constantly searching for good, healthy veggie choices, not only in my local area, but wherever my travels take me. This blog will highlight some of my favorite local choices, interesting finds around the world, vegetarian related articles, and some great vegetarian recipes.
I have been a vegetarian since 1990 and remember when my only choice at most restaurants was the "pasta primavera" or a side salad if I was lucky. My sister and I used to take the blue line to the GNC in downtown crossing to buy our veggie burgers as the "regular" grocery stores didn't carry them. Luckily times have changed, and increased awareness of the link between health and diet have brought many more options to the table, so to speak.
While my initial reasons for going veggie were based on animal rights, I have come to discover the many health and environmental benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. I don't intend to convert anyone or suggest any choice is wrong, I simply want to provide another resource for vegetarians and vegetarian sympathizers. Make sure you check out some of the recommended links and blogs.
