THE VEGETARIAN/CARNIVORE CONNECTION – MAKING IT WORK
By Parker Westbrook
So, a member of your family has decided to go vegetarian. While the veggie in question may be excited about their new healthy lifestyle and all the benefits to follow, the remaining carnivores in the family are surely thinking "here comes trouble". I say this from cruel experience, as these were my thoughts when my husband went from King Carnivore to Veggie Supreme. That was eleven years ago, and we still eat dinner together.
Here are some tips to help you fellow carnivores navigate your new landscape:
1. Go with the flow. Vegetarian cuisine has come a long way, baby. You won't have to live on rabbit food, and neither will your Vegetarian Loved One (VLO).

3. Try grabbing one of the many food oriented magazines available today as a low-cost way to learn new recipes – or get them free off the web.
Accommodating two eating styles in the home is not nearly as difficult as it appears it will be in the beginning. With so many easy recipes available, and so many non-meat options in every grocery store today, the vegetarian choices can seem almost endless. And, as I was relieved to learn, they taste good, too.
