Here it is…a quick-reference guide to Vegetarian Zen!

We mention so many amazing and useful websites, books, apps and other tools regarding vegetarianism, veganism, healthy eating, exercise, green living, productivity, building a website and podcasting in our blog posts and podcasts.

While we always link to them in our posts and show notes, we also want our readers and listeners to have easy access to them all in one place.  This page will be a work-in-progress, as we’ll be adding new resources as we find them.

We hope you will find as much value in these resources as we have!

Vegetarian / Vegan Resources

Farnoosh Brock’s wonderful definitive guide to juicing is a must-have for anyone thinking of starting this healthy habit.  We bought our copy at the same time we ordered our Omega juicer, and it helped us learn the juicing basics and has provided juicing inspiration and ideas since.

In this book, Farnoosh Brock gives smoothies the star treatment, as she did with juicing in her successful first book, The Healthy Juicer’s Bible.  The book is packed with recipes, both hers and those of guest contributors (spoiler: our Summer Spirulina Smoothie is included!).  She also includes tips for making smoothies and spells out their health benefits.

Virginia Messina and J.L. Fields have compiled a thorough reference for all women who currently lead a vegan lifestyle, as well as for those who may be considering it.  They address subjects ranging from basic nutrition education and how nutritional needs change throughout the life cycle to fertility, pregnancy and the special needs of female athletes.  And don’t forget the recipes section!

One of San Antonio’s few all-vegetarian restaurants.  The food is great (especially the kale salad), and it is such a treat to go to a restaurant and be able to order anything on the menu!  Most menu items can be made vegan, if that is your preference.  Be sure to sample the cupcakes when you visit…they are wonderful, and with several vegan and gluten-free options, there is something for everyone!

While not strictly vegetarian, this Tex Mex restaurant in San Antonio, TX does offer vegetarian options in their menu.  They also happily accomodate requests to leave meat out of dishes on the main menu if at all possible.  I wanted cheese enchiladas, but without the meat gravy, which they did for me (and they were delicious!).
