About Veggie-Might:

In a world where processed animal products are found in everything from soup to candy, The Little Hawk wants to help City High students choose more healthy, animal-friendly food choices. From fun recipes to ways to get essential vitamins, Veggie-Might will provide students with a place to find their inner vegetable.

 

About the Authors:

Lizzi Ayers believes that being vegetarian is about loving animals enough to do something meaningful to help them. Along with volunteering at the local animal shelter and spending time with her pets, Lizzi chooses not to eat meat and other animal products. She is not vegan, as she believes in eating eggs and milk when collected ethically, but she does think that vegans should be allowed to eat or not eat whatever they want. Lizzi believes the same with non-vegetarians; if they decide to eat meat, that doesn’t affect her. She’d love it if everyone were vegetarian, but not everyone has the access to tofu and other meat substitutes. She loves being vegetarian, and that’s all that matters.

 

To Zoe Tyne, vegetarianism is more than just a way of eating. It’s a way to keep their body healthy and make an impact on keeping the world healthy. Most importantly, it’s a guilt-free diet that makes them happy. Basically, being vegetarian is a fun and exciting experience that is exhilarating to take on. There is a thrilling feeling one gets when one tries out a new recipe and gets the outcome that they just haven’t found anywhere else. It’s a source of joy, no matter how small or large, that’s fun to share with anyone and everyone.
