"Veg Out"

7.3 million Americans are vegetarians and an additional 22.8 million follow a vegetarian-inclined diet. Vegetarian/vegan is the largest growing food category in publishing. Yes, there’s much so more to eat than salad and tofu.  

Whether you’re looking to trim your waistline (or grocery bill), adopt a more compassionate lifestyle, or just try some new recipes, AFPL has a large selection of materials to get you on your way – and celebrate 
.
 
Did you know that the largest age group of vegetarians is 16-24? AFPL has College Vegetarian Cooking, Help! My child stopped eating meat! : an A-Z guide to surviving a conflict in diets, and The Starving Students’ Vegetarian Cookbook, as well as several books for J and YA readers. Eat well and be well!
