(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN) In my quest to eat healthier and more compassionately I did something that might surprise you. I went to Burger King. I know many of the fast-food chains are now trying to appeal to vegetarians and vegans by offering meat-free options on their menus, but I never actually thought I’d take them up on it. — Global Animal
(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN) It's been almost two months now since starting my journey to becoming a healthier and more compassionate eater. I’ve had some missteps along the way (the wine & faux cheese debacle comes to mind), but for the most part I think I’m off to a pretty good start. I’m definitely eating more fruits and vegetables, and my NutriBullet deserves a lot of the credit. — Global Animal
(MEATLESS HOLIDAYS/VEGETARIAN-VEGAN RECIPES) Well, I made it through my first turkey-free Thanksgiving and survived. More than survived, it was delicious. I had all of my Thanksgiving favorites—stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes—and didn’t miss the turkey one bit. This got me thinking. With Hanukkah upon us and Christmas only a few weeks away, we have lots of parties and family gatherings coming up. Is it possible to stay healthy and meat-less throughout the holiday season? Thankfully, with so many healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes out there, the answer is YES!
(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN RECIPE/VEGAN RECIPE) Cannellini beans are a perfect vegetarian and vegan staple. I discovered the high protein legumes at a tapas restaurant last week and was completely inspired. I had never tasted cannellini before—to be honest I’m not really a big fan of beans—but these were delicious, so I decided to find out as much as I could about them. I really like the texture of the cannellini beans and the way the flavors from the vegetables and spices complement them. Even though I couldn't quite figure out the restaurant's recipe (just give me some time), I combined all of my favorite ingredients and came up with this one. Personally, I think it's just as good. Why not try it for yourself, or experiment with your own favorite flavors and let us know what you come up with? — Global Animal
