Over at the Well Blog, there was an interesting article about Mark Bittman, the Times food writer. He shares his “Vegan Before Dinnertime” diet. It’s quite interesting… I’ve been a vegan for about 2 years now. It’s definitely a process and can be hard at times. I’ll sometimes have some dairy or meat (rarely) If I know the farm where the animal was raised and can be assured that it is living (or lived) a happy life.
Everything that Bittman discusses is wonderful, but I’m not sure if I dig the “indulgent” dinner idea. Calorically and nutritionally, it would be better to have the indulgent meal in the morning so that daily activity can burn off and digest everything. Additionally, the “permission to binge” concept may not be helpful for some individuals.
I do tend to find some good recipes on Bittman’s blog though…
What are your thoughts about Bittman’s “Vegan Before Dinnertime”?
