Wow a good majority of the vegetarians and vegans on my f-list are having dietary issues and rants going on today (it's funny how that happens in groups) A lot of the angst stems from the perception of their diets as bland and boring or the inability to find true vegan or vegetarian food in restaurants (or being flat out lied to about what is in their dishes)

So why not as a show of support (because I know each one of you has at least one veggie friend) we all get together next friday (Aug 21st) and see if we can eat no meat. For the ambitious cooks in the audience we could even make stuff and post recipes... because hey vegetarian diets don't have to be bland and don't have to consist of salads and raw veggies. (and hey eating no meat might help save some CO2 emissions)

Indy and I can't have soy so this is going to be interesting. I'm going to try to eat vegan for a day.

So yeah Friday Aug 21st...eat no meat day! try and spread the word!

no soy would make being Veg hard but not impossible. for great and flavorful recipes there's a multitude of sources for recipes.

this is one of my favs, but then im partial to Indian food.

I wouldn't go vegan, I like cheese too much. But I'll be happy to give no meat a shot. I might even post the menu on my LJ. I also like eggs too much. :P

That's a travel day for Graeme and I, so I probably won't be able to e-participate. I'd love to see once I get back some of the recipes you come up with, or hear how people's experience was with consciously changing their eating habits for one day. :)
