HWN Suggests

What if Everyone in the World Became a Vegetarian?

The meat industry is one of the top contributors to climate change, directly and indirectly producing about 14.5 percent of the world’s anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and global meat consumption is on the rise. People generally like eating meat—when poor people start making more money, they almost invariably start buying more meat. As the population grows and eats more animal products, the consequences for climate change, pollution, and land use could be catastrophic.

Attempts to reduce meat consumption usually focus on baby steps—Meatless Monday and “vegan before 6,” passable fake chicken, and in vitro burgers. If the world is going to eat less meat, it’s going…

 What if Everyone in the World Became a Vegetarian?

Let’s try a middle path. We’re not all going to become vegetarians, but most of us can stop giving our money to factory farms—the biggest and worst offenders, from a pollution and public health perspective. We can eat less meat than we currently do, especially meat from methane-releasing ruminants (cattle, sheep, goats, etc.).

Against All Grain

I’m a mom, I write cookbooks, and host a weekly cooking show here on Facebook on Tuesdays at 4pm PT! I provide recipes that are grain-free, refined sugar-free, and lactose-free. Perfect for Paleo, Whole30, Gluten-Free, SCD, and GAPS.

Guilty Kitchen

Why Guilty Kitchen? Because, as a young mother, it's important to me to be a healthy role model to my child. I try to eat healthy, but gawd do I love food. Good food. Food that has butter, and cream, and sugar, and fat and loads of calories. Yes, that food. It makes me feel guilty.


Because healthy should still be delicious. A site from Bon Appétit.

The Salt

What's on your plate from NPR.


The inspiration for AromaCookery came from aromatherapy. I started thinking about how incomplete our experience of food would be without its wonderful aromas, and decided to write about my own aroma-food-therapy experiences.

Beautiful on Raw

Going raw has helped me–as it will anyone–arrest the post-40 slide into weight gain, flab, and the various other cumulative effects of poor dietary choices. What’s more, it has countered the grave consequences of surgical trauma, general anesthesia, and pain–the legacy of my former identity as a “cripple.” This raw food lifestyle, along with carrying me through personal challenges, has also brought my health and looks to an all-time best. This way of life opened a new chapter in my life.

Carrots 'N' Cake

This is where I share my love of food, staying fit, and living a healthy life. While I try to pack the most nutrients possible into each meal, I have a number of favorites that are not necessarily “healthy,” but are still delicious and fun to eat. If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced diet.

FatFree Vegan Kitchen

My name is Susan, and I'm a vegan--in other words, I don't eat or wear anything that's made of or by animals. I went vegetarian in 1988 because I didn't want to eat animals. Then, about 6 years later, I eliminated all animal products from my life, learned how to cook without added fat, and lost over 100 pounds.

Happy Healthy Life

This is my little corner of the internet, where I get to embrace and share all of my favorite things: food, writing, photography, travel, wellness, education, art, culture and community. Oh and cats, how could I forget, kitty cats.

Step Away From the Cake

I really believe that the readily available processed food is a part of the obesity problem here in the US.
