Introducing the V Word

The “V” word is nothing to be afraid of, scoff at or be ashamed of. In fact, approximately 7.3 million Americans have a vegetarian lifestyle, with another 34.7 million inclined or interested, too, according to Vegetarian Times. So wouldn’t it be nice if there was a place in this paper to find resources, tips and raves not just for the meatless eater, but also for anyone who wants to consume conscientiously? Well, here it is. Because the “V” word isn’t about self-righteousness or wearing PETA-approved lettuce bikinis; it’s about personal and environmental health, and knowing where food comes from.
