Spring into veganism

Dear Editor:

This past winter brought us crippling droughts and tornadoes, continuing unemployment and partisan paralysis in Washington. I really look forward to March 20, the first day of spring, with balmy weather, blooming flowers and the Great American Meatout.

According to its website http://www.meatout.org, Meatout has grown since 1985 into the world’s largest annual grassroots diet-education campaign. A thousand communities in all 50 states and two dozen other countries host educational events. They challenge visitors to turn over a new leaf on the first day of spring, to kick the meat habit and to get a fresh start with a wholesome diet of vegetables, fruits and grains.

The Meatout diet is touted by leading health authorities. I found it very easy to follow, and I feel great. I get all the recipes and other information I need by entering “live vegan” in my Internet search engine. I spice up my diet by exploring the rich array of delicious soy- and grain-based meat and dairy alternatives in my local supermarket.

Andrew Torelli
