David Duchovny Holy Cow

There were tons of great veggie stories in 2015. Here’s a look at some of the best.

#5 IKEA Launches Vegetarian Meatballs.
The home decor store with an eat-in restaurant had some bad press for the alleged horse meat in its regular meatballs. Now vegetarians can say “neigh” (groan) to any meat when they shop for that special table with the name that’s just as difficult to read as the instructions in its assembly manual.

#4 Morrissey Gives First In-Person Interview in Decade.
Ten years is a long time. Especially when you haven’t talked vegggie in person. The Smiths former singer came back and gave the world a few lessons on why they should never be hungry enough to eat animal flesh on Larry King Now.

Yotam Ottolenghi Gives “Plenty More” Vegetarian Recipes In New Book

Written by Vegetarian Star on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 in Authors, Books, Chefs, Food & Drink.

Plenty More Yotam Ottolenghi

Yotam Ottolenghi, food writer for The Guardian and author of a previous cookbook that put the spotlight on vegetables, has written an encore to Plenty.

Plenty More features more than 150 recipes that are organized by cooking method.

A second cookbook devoted entirely to vegetarian eating is not bad for someone who would have never considered including even one plant-based recipe in his regular columns if his Guardian editor had not suggested it.

Meatless Mouthful–Rick Warren Praises The Plant

Written by Vegetarian Star on Monday, December 9th, 2013 in Authors, Food & Drink, Meatless Mouthful.

Rick Warren

“If it grows on a plant, it’s healthy. If it’s made in a plant, don’t eat it.”

Rick Warren, popular pastor who recently lost weight on a diet that emphasized more vegetables. The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life, is co-written with two physicians and details how Warren and his congregation shed a total of 250,000 pounds!

So nice to hear that the preacher has experienced a rebirth and is saying good things about meatless meals in contrast to his previous blasphemous talk about the vegetarian wrap.

Christina Pirello Interview On “Wellness 1000” Ebook Cookbook

Written by Vegetarian Star on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013 in Authors, Books, Chefs, Food & Drink, Interviews.

Wellness 1000 Christina Pirello

Christina Pirello has written a new cookbook, Wellness 1000: Simple, Plant-Based Recipes and Sound Advice to Cook Your Way to Vibrant Health. The ebook edition of Wellness 1000 was released today, and the vegan chef and host of PBS’ Christina Cooks! gave an exclusive interview to Vegetarian Star to give readers a preview of what to expect on their electronic readers.

1. During your PBS cooking show, Christina Cooks!, the audience usually leaves with lots of laughter in addition to culinary tips. Can readers expect to find the same humor in Wellness 1000?
It’s hard to translate humor to the written page but luckily we were able to insert 32 videos into the Wellness 1000 so I can say with confidence that people will get a generous taste of my humor, since that is my hallmark. People say that I write like I talk, that they can ‘hear’ me in the pages of my books, so I think we might be all set in the humor department.

And did you hear the one about…?

2. You’ve talked about your Italian roots and growing up enjoying Italian cuisine, both on your site and your show. Italian food can be rich in cheese, cream and other dairy and meat products. Can you talk about some of the vegan alternatives and are there any recipe examples in Wellness 1000?
My Italian heritage is all over Wellness 1000! While I subscribe to a macrobiotic lifestyle, I have adapted it to embrace my Italian-ness and bring out the best of that simple yet elegantly delicious cuisine. Since freshness is the hallmark of Italian cooking, it’s not a big leap from traditional to plant-based. Wellness 1000 is rich in Italian style recipes.

Dilbert’s Scott Adams Latest Advice For Success Includes Good Nutrition

Written by Vegetarian Star on Wednesday, October 30th, 2013 in Authors, Books, Food & Drink.

How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big Scott Adams

Scott Adams, the creator behind the popular comic strip Dilbert, has written a book about his success, How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big.

Adams gives a few bits of advice for making it, but he doesn’t necessarily recommend you follow it, as Lesson#5 states: Don’t take career advice from a cartoonist. (or health advice or finance advice for that matter).

Good health is a must for any success and Adams lists this as one of the keys to getting what you want in life.

Staying Fit is Lesson #3, and he also advises to, “learn as much as you can about what food choices are better for you…People who know the most about nutrition almost always eat better.”

“You can use meat to season rather than being a big hunk of protein in the middle of the plate. But if you have a hard time breaking out of that, then I would start by just designating certain meals as meatless. Mark Bittman does a beautiful job of this philosophy with his Eat Vegan Before 6:00. Certainly the Meatless Monday campaign is a good way to think about it.”

Joe Yonan, food critic and editor for the Washington Post, with his advice on going vegetarians or flexitarian. You can read more about Yonan’s journey to a plant-based diet in his interview with the Humane Society’s November/December 2013 issue of All Animals magazine.
