A recent study quoted by a number of online media sources, including the New York Daily News, shows that a diet high in animal protein helps stave off cognitive decline in elderly individuals. HOWEVER, you have to get there first. And to do that … “The research shows that a low-protein diet in middle age is useful for preventing cancer and overall mortality,” said … Eileen Crimmins, AARP Chair in Gerontology at USC.” I read that and immediately thought of A Crust Eaten’s tasty-looking recipes in the Meatless Monday posts. Which of these will I try first? Don’t know yet, but I am definitely aiming to make it to senior status! lol I look forward to finding the right wines to pair with these and other veggy dishes.
Over the past six months or so, I’ve tried to post one vegetarian recipe a week to encourage people to think outside the meat and potatoes box when it comes to dinner. All of the recipes are listed under the Meatless Monday section on the Food page, but below are some of my favorites and ones that we come back to again and again.
I hope that 2014 will bring even more inspiring vegetarian recipes for me to share with you as I try to be even more creative with vegetables. Happy New Year!
