wow. what a good point. it seems these days you can call yourself vegetarian and eat chips and coke for lunch. i'd like to make more meals centered around lots of veggies, even with minimal meat.

The following is excerpted fron an interview [
AugustNewsletter_2007.html] between Amy Hemmert, co-creator of LaptopLunches bento box system, and Mollie Katzen, cookbook author.

Amy: Food preferences and eating habits have changed substantially since Moosewood was first published. How is your latest book different [The Vegetable Dishes I Cant Live Without], and how does it reflect the changes that have taken place?

Mollie: Early vegetarian cookbooks provided recipes for people who simply didnt want to eat meat and werent necessarily focused on incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into their diet. Becoming vegetarian was fashionable, but it tended to express more of a no to meat than a yes to vegetables. I wanted to create a cookbook that would provide joyful, delicious recipes that celebrated good ingredients and werent simply (or at all) dogmatic. I have to say that Im unhappy with the word vegetarian because it still tends to imply anything but meat, rather than lets eat beautifully from the garden and orchard. Its disappointing to go into a restaurant and find that the only non-meat options are pasta and/or risotto. I want to see meals with or without meat that pile the plate high with nutritious, beautifully presented fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and other foods low on the food chain, regardless of where the main protein comes from....

You can find more information on my Web site at My books are available in local bookstores nationwide (and on I like to support independent book stores so heres a plug to look there first not just for my titles, but for anything in print.

Mollie expressed better than I ever could the difference I want for this team compared to some of the other veggie teams on SparkPeople.
