      Hi everyone,

      It's really great that the Food Network has a link off of their homepage to a section on vegetarianism http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/lf_hl_vegetarian. They point out the sources of different nutrients and include some recipes.

      However, the irony is not lost that though they're trying to EDUCATE people on eating vegetarian, they include a salmon recipe in their list of "10 Vegetarian Recipes." (Scroll to the bottom.) It's so silly, because even in their description of what a vegetarian is, they include fish: "In the purest sense, a vegetarian diet is a plant-based diet that not only shuns all sources of meat, poultry, and fish but also any foods derived from animals."

      They've obviously just missed the boat on this one - please write to them and ask them to replace the salmon recipe with a truly vegetarian recipe (perhaps even provide your own - and one that "happens" to be vegan).

      I also encourage everyone to cc Joan Salge Blake (salge@...), the nutritionist who supplied the information. I don't know if she recommend the salmon recipe, but her name is credited on that page.

      For the animals (and especially the salmon in this case!), :)
