Why the Washington Post says ‘Meat is Horrible’

“Meat is horrible.” That was the headline I saw all weekend on my iPhone News shortcuts screen. It was dated July 3rd but yet it remained well past that date for a couple of days.

Vegan Cauliflower “Mac & Cheese”

I used to hate the saying, “comfort food.” It is an overused term on a local TV show in Boston, given to just about any dish that appears to be high in fat and calories. Why not just call it food made by a person who could care less what you put in your mouth […]

Fresh Take on Meatless Meals: 15 Vegetarian Recipes

I love eating vegetarian a few times a week. As Michael Pollan famously said, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Eating vegetarian is also cheaper than buying meat for most meals.
