Thanks for article on plant-based eating

March 5, 2013

I was delighted to read your recent article on Dorothy Greet and the merits of plant-based eating, as well as Sue Barry's Feb. 19 letter of support.

I too am a passionate proponent of plant-based eating. As a vegetarian for 24 years and now vegan for a year-and-a-half, I can attest to the many health benefits, including high levels of vitality, energy and well-being.  Even cutting back on meat helps - and certainly helps the animals and the environment too.

What's surprising to many though, is how good the food is!  People are happy to discover just how delicious plant-based eating can be.  Websites abound with fabulous recipes, and restaurants increasingly are offering vegan options as demand for this is soaring nationwide.

To connect our rapidly growing veg community here at the beach, VegRehoboth was formed in late 2012. We host social outings, potlucks, restaurant excursions, film screenings, and share recipes. We welcome those who are veg-curious and want to learn more.  Interested readers can find info at

Thank you again for such a timely and important article.
