>A great friend of mine asked me for some website recommendations for vegetarian sites. He’s considering becoming vegetarian, and I’m so proud of him, no matter his reasoning. I recommended the following sites, just as a starting off point for people who have no idea about vegetarianism:
- http://www.vegetariantimes.com/ (great site for recipes, and also one of the few magazines that are really worth subscribing to nowadays)
There’s a lot of great information on the net about vegans and vegetarians. However, there is also a lot of misinformation, and negative, sometimes extremely opinionated website content out there for veggie beginners to absorb. The sites above are only a few of probably hundreds, but that I think are some of the best.
If you’re thinking of becoming a vegan or vegetarian, of course follow your heart. But lean into it. Sometimes our bodies go into shock when we start completely cutting out food groups that we’ve eaten our entire lives. Maybe start with a vegetarian day one day per week. Take it slow, and don’t overwhelm yourself.
