A Month of Meatless Meals October 30, 2010Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Vegetarian Recipes.
Those of you who’ve been reading SLTW for any length of time have no doubt picked up on the fact that I’m a vegetarian for three primary reasons: (1) better for me; (2) better for the planet; and (3) better for the animals I would otherwise be consuming.
Many readers have expressed the desire to incorporate more meatless meals into their own cooking.
