30 DAY VEGETARIAN MENU
FOR THOSE WHO DON'T LIKE TO COOK

Cookbooks too complicated for you? Your daughter can't boil water? The Vegetarian Resource Group has a free 30 day vegetarian menu for those who don't like to cook.

  1. Purchase a vegetable pot pie from a natural foods store or supermarket.
  2. Supermarket salad bar -- A good source of a meal. Just have once or twice a month so you don't get bored with it. Try to choose lowfat dressings.
  3. Attend vegetarian activities and get invited to a friend's home for a vegetarian dinner.
  4. A quick meal -- Open a can of chickpeas, mash them lightly, and prepare it like you would tuna salad. Put on bread, you're ready to eat. If you don't like the salt, you can rinse the chickpeas.
  5. Veggie hot dogs and vegetarian baked beans -- Warm up these items which are becoming more readily available in many mainstream supermarkets. Surprisingly, the veggie hot dogs are often next to the meat ones.
  6. Purchase Vegetarian Journal's Guide to Natural Foods Restaurants in the U.S. and Canada -- This way when you travel you will always be able to find places offering vegetarian meals. For information, call (410) 366-8343.
  7. Vegetable lo mein and steamed mixed vegetables from a local Chinese restaurant -- Request brown rice instead of white rice.
  8. Appalachian Trail Stew -- It's easy to prepare: put all into one pot and boil until done -- lentils, a little macaroni, rice, and maybe a cut up potato. For flavoring, you can add garlic powder or tomato sauce for a different dish. For a little more variety, add some cut up broccoli or frozen vegetables.

To request all 30 tips, send a self addressed envelope with two first class stamps to 30 Day Menu, Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203.
