Ok, my apologies for the ridiculous title of this blog, but I’m in DC and the inauguration is on the brain!
For a complete list of veggie friendly restaurants in DC and the surrounding areas (while you are in town for the inaugural events), check out http://www.vegdc.com/.
Check out the following websites to see if vegetarianism is right for you: http://www.cok.net/, http://www.tryveg.com/, http://www.goveg.com/, http://www.veganhealth.org/, http://www.vegdining.com/, http://www.peta.org/
For a more in depth read on the pros of eating vegetarian and vegan, as well as the negative effects of eating animal products, read Skinny Bitch. This book opened my eyes about the harmful practices of the U.S. meat and dairy industry. I was a converted vegetarian immediately after reading.
