Of course, you don't need to force bean burgers on your barbeque-loving uncle or boss. I'm only suggesting that the special request becomes "with meat" or "with dairy" instead of "vegan" or "vegetarian."  Folks who don't specify will thrive on scrumptious, healthy plants.

Hungry for More?

My newest book, Fifty Weeks of Green: Romance & Recipes, has 60 plant-based recipes that start with simple salad dressings and moves on to homemade biscuit mix and peach cobbler as the heroine learns to cook. My first book, Wildly Affordable Organic: Eat Fabulous Food, Get Healthy, and Save the Planet--All on $5 a Day, has an index of 50 vegan recipes in the back and lots of good shopping, cooking, and cleaning tips. And I'll be back on the week of January 19th with recipes and tips about eating plants together.
