World Vegetarian Day Follow Up

Sunday, October 4th, 2020

October 1st was World Vegetarian Day. Because I posted a poem and art for fall, I only listed a website to view. Here it is again in case you missed it:


Today I am posting information that is a follow-up to World Vegetarian Day. The source is from Food Revolution, a creation of Ocean and John Robbins (whom I met decades ago at a vegetarian conference.) In one email I received a chart called TOP 10 Foods to EAT and AVOID for Longevity. (Short explanations are added to each food)

Sorry, the Jewish Holiday of Succot interrupted my posting of this recipe, so I will post it on Monday or Tuesday if this week. Thanx, Lois, for catching my error!

Also, here is a simple Early Fall Salad to help you celebrate eating lower on the food chain. Because I had not planned to post it, I don’t have specific amounts, so this is one of my cooking-by-the-strings of your apron.
