DC Goes Meat-Free for a Week
Back by popular demand is DC Meat-Free Week from February 7th through 14th with a great line-up of events, speakers and specials around the city. There’s even a Vegan Food Truck Day. Looking forward to this catching on throughout the city and seeing even more restaurants participate in 2012.
Stay Classy Carl’s Jr.
“The bottom line is we’re in the business of making money, and we make money off of what we sell. If we wanted to listen to the food police and sell nuts and berries and tofu burgers, we wouldn’t make any money and we’d be out of business.”
The latest studies show that at least 7.3 million Americans are vegetarians and another 22.8 million are part-time vegetarians who like to change it up. At Moe’s, we don’t ask. Instead we offer it all, so all diets are equally satisfied.
Roast a Butternut Squash Whole. Srsly?
Ok, I’ll admit, I didn’t know this…you can throw a whole butternut squash into the oven (without peeling and without poking it with a fork) and it makes it easier to peel after it’s roasted. A Veggie Venture was just as surprised to learn this and has the lo down on how to do it.
Oprah’s Vegan Challenge: The Aftermath
Oprah challenged her staff to go vegan for a week and aired an episode about it and she also offers a Vegan Starter Kit on her website. I haven’t had a chance to sit and watch the whole show yet so I’ll give you Eat Drink Better’s follow-up report about the episode. It seems that not all staffers enjoyed the experience, while others decided to change their diets indefinitely. Meanwhile, the Harpo Studio cafeteria is going to participate in Meatless Mondays. No meat for you! No meat for you! And, no meat for you!
