- It's something you need every day. Home renovations may only get done every few years; new crops only go into the garden once a year; but you've always got to eat.
- It's an infinitely rich and varied topic. There are only so many things you can say about yard sale shopping or invasive plants (though every so often I do learn something new), but there's literally no limit to the number of ways to grow, prepare, and serve food.
However, I've never really made a post here that was specifically about vegetarianism: its benefits, its challenges, and the ways to adapt to it if you're used to a meat-centered diet. So for those who are curious to learn more about this subject, my latest Money Crashers article is a good place to look. It's a complete primer on vegetarianism, covering:
- The many different types of vegetarian diets, and what they all mean
- The answer to the age-old question, "But what do you eat?"
- The benefits of a meatless or meat-light diet, including animal welfare, environmental benefits, health benefits, and lower cost
- How to make sure you get enough of specific nutrients
- Learning how to cook vegetarian
- How to stick to a vegetarian diet when eating out or dining with friends
