As a vegetarian, I am often asked…what do you eat? This question is never asked more often, than during this glorious “Season of Food”. I have always enjoyed learning, sharing and teaching, and I find that this simple question provides an opportunity to help people understand a different way of looking at food. I also know that many people have a vegetarian in their lives and they can find it daunting to prepare a meal that accommodates the vegetarian and the meat-eating part of the group. As the only vegetarian in my family and group of friends, I can tell you that it is easy to have a group meal, where everyone feels satisfied and full, without a lot of extra work, if any at all.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to start a series called: When Veggies Come to Dinner. It is a multipart series where I define different types of Veggie diets. I’ll provide tips for eating veggie in restaurants, at fast food locations and quick, easy meal suggestions. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
The “When Veggies Come to Dinner” Series (coming soon)
Part 1: Vegetarians (lacto-ovo), Pescatarians and Flexitarians Defined
Part 2: Vegans and Raw Vegans Defined
Part 3: Tips for Feeding and Understanding Your Veggie Friends and Family
Part 4: Vegetarian Curiosities, FAQs and Nutrition
. . .
Now, onto the BIG question of the season: “What do you eat at Thanksgiving Dinner?” The answer is simply this: SO much! Just like everyone else, I happily stuff myself to capacity, then top it off with a large plate of desserts.
(yeah, there was more than 1)
(I must apologize, plate 2 was eaten with such ferocity that I forgot to photograph it. These are the items it included, with the exception of “Uncle Keith’s Famous Mashed Potatoes”. They are SO very bad for you, yet SO very good.)
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
