Recently, homemaking maven Martha Stewart responded to a query about vegetarian nutrition in a column on HeraldNet. The question was concerning how to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for vegetarian children, and Stewart, whose daughter Alexis Stewart is a longtime vegetarian, was more than prepared to offer advice. Stewart emphasized that meat-free meals are healthful and meet nutritional needs, including iron-rich foods such as spinach, kale, collards, beans, nuts, and whole grains. In addition to supporting vegetarian diets for children, Stewart recently featured vegan chef Bryant Terry on The Martha Stewart Show, and posted a guide to 100 vegetarian recipes in honor of Earth Day.
