Vegan recipes contain no animal products whatsoever: no meat, no dairy, no eggs, and no honey.
In September 2009, I spent three weeks studying vegetarian cooking in Italy. Here are my detailed reviews.
A vegetarian diet can be very healthy, but it is not inherently so. Just cutting meat out of your meals does not automatically assure you all the benefits of the vegetarian diet - in order to be healthy, you need to eat healthy food, vegetarian or not.
My vegetarian glossary includes definitions and additional information for terms related to vegetarianism and vegetarian cuisine.
There is a popular misconception that meat is the only real source of protein, and thus that a vegetarian diet is inherently unhealthy due to a lack of protein. It is impossible to overstate how untrue this is.
Though I can't hope to ever have a definitive list of vegetarian restaurants, I travel quite a bit and love trying new restaurants. This list includes vegetarian and vegan restaurants arojund the world, as well as non-veggie restaurants that offer a nice vegetarian selection.
Do you know what "organic" means, and how it applies to you? Whether you are a vegetarian for ethical, health, or environmental reasons, organic products complement your beliefs and goals.
