did you see this?
I didn't think it was very good.
Hey Marge and everyone,
Posted this on facebook and here is what I responded with:
This week in the NY Times. This article addresses several important points, such as social and restaurant challenge, yet it also misses the counter-arguments of how inexpensive and easy eating a healthy, whole-foods plant diet can be. You DON"T need 'specialty items' (since when is a pinto bean specialty?), you don't need $4 "vegburgers". The article does a disservice in perpetuating these myths about going vegan by missing the whole, real foods health vegan option. Also, I must admit that the 'waah waah' about how 'hard it is with restaurants' causes me to reflect on the history of eating vegetarian in the 70's - compared to the challenges back then, today it's nothing! At the same time, glad to see more articles demonstrating mainstream movement of choosing to give meat, fish, other animals and dairy the heave-ho off your plate. What do you think?
And yes wild4stars, you are so right!
