(or how to eat well, eat smart and stay PARVE)
Maybe it’s the month of Av that got me thinking in terms of Non-Meat suppers. Or the heat of summer. Then again, it may be my organic-leaning friends with their high energy levels. Or maybe it’s just knowing I can eat any of this and still be cool with a Fro-Yo for dessert. Whatever! We eat Vegetarian Style at least twice a week in my house, and we like it. Not falling into the very dull trap of melted cheese sandwiches and fish sticks is a must. Keeping it fresh, low in fat and high in whole grains and summer vegetables is key.
