Vegetarian and love grilled cheese sandwiches? What can you do if you’re craving a grilled cheese sandwich and you’re a vegetarian -even if you’re a strict vegetarian or vegan?

Vegetarian and Dietary Supplements Need to lose a few pounds and feel more healthy? I’m on a 30-day semi-vegetarian plan that includes eating vegetables, drinking a nutritious shake, and occasionally eating meat. One thing I did previous to trying this flexitarian challenge was to add a dietary supplement that helps with healthy digestion, supports healthy weight loss, and provides healthy energy. When I decided to go on a 30-day vegetarian plan for April, I wasn’t sure how I would do. However, I love vegetables and don’t mind skipping meat some days. In addition, I drink a great-tasting nutritious shake most days. A semi-vegetarian diet appealedRead More →

A Semi-Vegetarian Recipe Today’s featured semi-vegetarian recipe is yellow squash. Grow this delicious vegetable in your garden, and preserve it in your freezer. Puttin’ up vegetables (the Southern way of saying preserving, canning, or freezing vegetables) will keep you from having to purchase high-priced organic food at the supermarket throughout the year.
