In honor of Vegetarian Awareness Day, check out the fabulous CNN Eatocracy post listing five reasons to be a vegetarian. TV host Jane Velez-Mitchell wrote it from her vegan perspective in response to the bully blatherings of a Texas chef who seems to have a ribeye where his heart should be. If you ask me, her logical and compassionate comments make his ode to meat look so weak that it could fall over if you blew on it. Our bet is that he has been deprived of good food and would change his opinion if he ever set foot inside Sublime or read the The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook.
Why not take a minute to join in the "great vegetarian debate" and remind everyone that vegan food is not only good for you—and animals—but also tastes great?
