Hans and I are vegetarians…but we are going vegan for the next few weeks. Hans is going to love it! haha. A little break from dairy so to speak. A few people have asked what kind of dairy we eat, living in the land of cheese and all. It’s not possible to find rennet-free dairy in the regular grocery stores but we do have a really nice organic/vegetarian store in our hood that sells amazing parmesan and slices. (This is when I miss living in Philly, on the same block as a gigantic Whole Foods Market). And to answer another question I’ve been asked via email quite a bit: Yes, we will be raising our Munchkin as a vegetarian. If he’d like to try meat or fish someday we won’t stop him but we aren’t going to encourage it. I will, however, put my foot down with McDonald’s and other fast food chains. Not sure how this will work when he’s 13, though…No, we won’t raise him to believe meat-eating is evil but my hope is that he respects animals and chooses to be vegetarian throughout his life. This doesn’t mean we don’t partake in badness now and again like ice cream, Belgian fries smothered in mayo and cookies ;)
Anyway, I came across this blog I thought I’d share (for Miss Sarah especially). The recipes sound delish and the photos are making me hungry!
