This week on Animal Voices we’ll be speaking with Debra Wasserman, co-coordinator of the Baltimore-based Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG) and prolific cookbook author. The VRG is a “non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on vegetarianism and the interrelated issues of health, nutrition, ecology, ethics, and world hunger. In addition to publishing the Vegetarian Journal, VRG produces and sells cookbooks, other books, pamphlets, and article reprints.” Debra’s cookbooks include Vegetarianism for the Working Person, Meatless Meals for Working People, Simply Vegan (co-authored), and The Lowfat Jewish Vegetarian Cookbook. Debra is also the past editor of the fabulous Vegetarian Journal.
We’ll learn how Debra makes her recipes so convenient, nutritious, and tasty, and how she keeps the VRG running smoothly. She’s fielded a lot of questions about vegetarianism over the years, and she’ll share with us some of the most common inquiries (and her answers!). After so many years of focussing on the issues, Debra will also speak about her journey with vegetarianism and her strategies for avoiding burnout.
