Where is global warming when we need it? I do look forward to the first day of spring, balmy weather and flowers in bloom.
The first day of spring is actually a perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf in our personal habits: to clean house, to jog outdoors and to replace animal foods with healthy, delicious vegetables, legumes, grains and fruits.
The shift toward healthy eating is everywhere. Fast-food chains like Chipotle, Quiznos, Starbucks, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy's offer plant-based options. Parade, Better Homes and Gardens and Eating Well are touting vegan recipes.
