Eat Meat? Go Veg once a week! Already Vegitarian? Go Vegan!

Are you ready for tomorrow? 10 Ideas

Be sure you have the ingredients on hand to cook veg tomorrow, or know where you're going if you plan to eat out.

A vegetarian friend wrote and said she would try to live on "cookies" on Mondays.

You don't have to do that! There are lots of vegan dishes!

Instead of giving you expensive, complicated recipes, let me just plant ten ideas in your head for things you might try tomorrow. With cheese, they're vegetarian. Without cheese (or with soy cheese), instant vegan!

  • beans and rice (lentils or Indian "daal," refried bean and rice burritos, or a simple bowl of cooked beans over steamed rice)
  • vegetables and rice (try cooking rice in a rice cooker with vegetables in the top tray; or do fried rice)
  • vegetables and noodles (stir fry style)
  • pasta w/tomato, basil, onion, garlic (if you can't live without cheese, use soy)
  • tofu tacos, burritos, etc.
  • veg sandwiches (try avocado, tomato, sprouts--it doesn't have to be boring; Subway makes a great "Veggie Delight" sandwich)
  • salads with extras (nuts, avocado--again, it doesn't have to be boring)
  • stews, chilis, and soups
  • pizza with no cheese or soy cheese
  • risotto or paella

And we haven't even mentioned all the products available for the veg market--the mock meats, etc.

So, live it up, while you Live and Let Live!
