What an impressive list. It almost makes me ashamed that I eat meat(even in small quantities)
I have had to alter my diet due to health conditions and although I am not completely "meat free" I I am eating more of a vegetarian diet lately. I will be back for more recipes. Thanks..Laurie

wow way more than I would have imagined, actually.. Some a bit surprising... I do love Jane Goodall though!

I have been a vegetarian since I was 12, but it's very rewarding.
