Earlier this month, in celebration of Vegetarian Awareness Month, Ecorazzi interviewed CNN's Nicole Lapin. Below is an excerpt from the interview:
Ecorazzi: How long have you been vegetarian/vegan?
Nicole Lapin: 13 years vegetarian. 6 years vegan.
E: What’s one tip you’d give for somebody who might be interested in transitioning to a more plant-based diet?
NL: Sometimes it’s not what’s on the table, it’s who’s at it. Don’t make a fuss when options are limited. Learn how to be creative when you go out with non-vegetarians. Look at all the side dishes on a menu and remember the kitchen has those things to “soup up” a salad or to prepare as a side dish.
