ABOUT THE BOOK There are countless reasons that may have been behind your decision not to eat meat: moral, practical, and health-related are only a few. If you are like most people, the the first step in your process of going vegetarian is figuring out exactly what led you to this decision. Maybe, like many vegetarians, you simply believe that eating animals is wrong. No matter how humanely the animal was raised, or how allegedly painless the slaughter, you simply will not be responsible for ending another life. One vegetarian recalled how this moral truth was evident to her from a young age, but she didn’t make the switch until much later in life, mostly because she hadn’t known how. Perhaps, though, your ethical conflict is less black and white, and you are more opposed to the practices involved in eating meat than the theory behind it. You may have seen a video like this one of brutal slaughterhouse procedures produced by the Humane Society, or you are one of the millions of readers of books by Jonathan Safran Foer, Eric Schlosser, and Michael Pollan chronicling the cruelty, corruption, and staggering environmental effects of the factory farming industry. MEET THE AUTHOR Deena Shanker is a writer living in San Francisco. After moving to the west coast from New York City in the fall, she is loving San Fran's beautiful weather, colorful architecture, and never-ending vegetarian food options. She loves visiting the beach with her dog, Barley, and eating cheese (also sometimes with Barley). She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Barnard College. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK It’s almost inevitable that you will face some scrutiny about your choice to become a vegetarian. People are going to ask you why, and more often than not, they will tell you why you’re wrong. Know yourself and the reasons behind your decision and don’t try to persuade anyone else to give up meat. Be careful to watch your tone so that you don’t reproach people you care about, even if they are doing it to you. I recommend gaging the person’s interest before continuing the conversation. Are they just asking you to be polite or do they really care? If the person really cares, give a short explanation that isn’t too graphic. (E.g., “Animals are often slaughtered in an unnecessary cruel and inhumane manner” is better than “Did you know that cows are often skinned before they’re even dead?”) If the person is less engaged, you may want to suggest some of the reading, movies, or websites that played a role in your decision and leave it at that. Also, be tactful. Don’t talk about the cruel treatment of animals right when your dining partner is digging into his burger. Don’t send a PETA video to a friend that has no interest in learning about it. You are unlikely to change your friends’ habits, but you may end up offending or alienating people important to you.

Just because you're trying to lose weight doesn't mean you actually need to give up your favorite foods. It also doesn't mean when summer is here you only need to eat salads or steamed fish. Did you know when trying to lose weight, eating meals cooked on a barbecue can help you to achieve your goals? Most people, when the words "barbecue" are said will immediately think of warm summer evenings enjoying great food and drink with their friends and family. However by choosing to barbecue their food they are actually making a subconscious decision to eat more healthily. Through barbecuing you'll find yourself actually eating less fat. This is because when you choose to cook meat or fish on a barbecue you only need to provide a light coating of oil to prevent it from sticking to the grill. Another reason why barbecuing food is much better for you when losing weight is it has a much lower calorie count. So of course the fewer calories being consumed means you won't have to burn off so many when exercising. Yet you'll still find you can still eat the same amount of food. As well as helping to reduce the amount of calories and fat you consume by grilling food on a barbecue you are actually reducing the chances of you developing such diseases as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or a stroke.
Inadequate protein intake in America is rare, but balancing protein calories with a healthy amount of carbohydrate and fat calories daily can be a lot of guesswork without the help of nutritional analysis. The Institute of Medicine suggests between 10 and 35% of calories come from protein, but according to a study by University of Colorado researchers, the average is about 17%. Most people, especially those who are meat eaters, are likely to be eating proteins that are also contributing high levels of saturated fats into their diet. Protein repairs body cells, builds and repairs muscles and bones, and provides energy and eating protein in our foods gives us a feeling of satiation that can help when we are‘weight watching’. It is for these reasons that exploring alternative, vegetarian sources of protein with low calorie intake can help you to make positive steps towards a healthier diet. Proteins are made up of strings of about 20 different amino acids, 8 of which the body can not synthesize itself and must be continually supplied in the diet. This creates particular problems for vegetarians, especially vegans who have to ensure they are getting enough protein in their diet and sufficient supplies of the essential amino acids. Some of the world’s most brilliant and influential people have practiced and promoted the vegetarian way of life, including Pythagorus, Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Gandhi, Charles Darwin, George Bernard Shaw—just to name a few. Wouldn’t you like to join them? All the recipes also include detailed information on calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, sodium, and potassium, as well as serving sizes.
