I am interested in becoming a vegetarian


Is there are good starter cookbook for vegetarians?

I'd recommend "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home" as a very good starter cookbook. It gives serving ideas too, like "Make this with the side dish from page 119 and the dressing on page 238" etc. has a New Veggies message board, and a Recipes board, both of which have great recipes posted.

Also, you should probably pick up a basic nutrition book just so that you won't worry about things like protein, and so you can answer all the annoying questions you'll undoubtedly receive. :-) I very highly recommend "Becoming Vegetarian" by Vesanto Melina, Brenda Davis, & Victoria Harrison.

Where to begin!?

One day at a time, the same as the rest of us do. It gets easier after a while, trust me.

And feel free to post back here with more questions! We're a quiet board but respond back quickly when there's a new question...
