Venerable Member Still Sharing Copies of VJ With Others

If you have an extra copy of the magazine around, I’d love to share it with family and friends, all of whom are interested in organic farming, gardening, and food. At 100 years plus, I’m glad to be a loyal member of VRG’s Circle of Compassion!

Congratulations on all your achievements in spreading awareness and awakening on our oneder full (wonderful) planet!

Viva Mexican Food!

In response to “Vegan in a Mexican Household” in Issue 1,2011, of Vegetarian Journal:

Thank you for exploring how easy it is to veganize my favorite cuisine, Mexican food! I went vegan in 2002, and the very first dishes I sought to make with plant-based ingredients were tacos, enchiladas, and burritos. It was surprisingly simple, and Veronica Lizaola’s article offers some new recipes I know I’ll be trying soon.

In addition to your magazine, a resource your readers will find very useful is , a website devoted to making delicious, satisfying south-of-the-border meals without meat, eggs, or dairy.

Hey, VRG! Did You Know That Link Isn’t Working Anymore?

In response to “The American Dietetic Association Publishes a New Position Paper on Vegetarian Diets” in the “Scientific Update” in Issue 1, 2010, of Vegetarian Journal:

Not being a member of the American Dietetic Association (ADA), we could not get to the ADA paper referenced on page 13 using the link given, eatright.org/ada/files/VegetarianPositionFINAL.pdf. However, it is retrievable by going to and searching for “Vegetarian Position FINAL.”
