The Gradual Vegetarian is a workable plan--a clear, sensible, forgiving and

The shift to vegetarianism is accomplished in three stages: in Stage One, we still
eat poultry, fish, and eggs; in Stage Two, we rely on dairy products, nuts, beans,
and grains as sources of protein; in Stage Three, we begin to experience meals from
macrobiotic kitchens. But there are no hard and fast rules here. This is a journey
full of the pleasure of picking and choosing our own course.

that for a plan to be successful, it had to be adaptable. Her special dual-menu
plan outlines how to happily feed meat-eaters and vegetarians who eat together,
