Karen GilmanHi, I am Karen Gilman and I am here to celebrate with you your child’s choice to ‘go vegetarian.’ You are here because you worry they will not get the nutrients they need or you are looking for tips on how to make healthy vegetarian meals. I am here to help put your mind at ease and give you the tools to support this vegetarian journey! Be sure to check out some of my programs and free resources.

My Teenager Has Become Vegetarian... Now What?

Your teenager has declared they no longer want to eat meat.  How are they going to get enough protein, calcium or iron? Can their growing body get enough of these nutrients and the calories its needs if they do not eat any meat?

Not to worry. They will be fine as long as they eat the right foods. I know only too well how challenging it can be to get kids to eat properly.  Boys, too, can be picky eaters, although they don’t face the same nutritional challenges as girls.

You don’t want them to become dependent on multivitamins to bridge the gap, which is why it is important to ensure they get the nutrients they need from the foods they are eating.

Do you find shopping for veggie burgers confusing? 

Are you looking to buy some veggie burgers now that barbecue season is in full swing? Though it doesn’t seem too difficult a task, shopping for veggie burgers can be a bit overwhelming for some of us.  This section of the grocery store has really expanded over the past few years and it is hard to know which burger to buy.

5 Ways To Up The Ante On Your Pasta Meals

5 Ways To Up The Ante On Your Pasta Meals

To make meal planning easier, I have designated Tuesdays as pasta night. It just made life easier when when we had extra curricular activities when the kids were little. Now a few years later, it has sort of stuck and I don’t mind because pasta night is usually an easy meal that everyone likes. Some weeks though pasta tends to make an appearance a few times not just for dinner but for lunch too.
