During the past year or so, we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see Martha Stewart support a plant-based diet. Whether it’s hosting a vegetarian thanksgiving show or supporting vegan bakeries, it’s clear that Martha is happy to lend a hand to Team Veg!

In a recent column on HeraldNet.com, Martha was asked a question about preparing healthy foods for a vegetarian child. The reader asks, “My daughter doesn’t eat meat. What should she include in her diet to ensure she gets enough iron?”

Martha, having firsthand experience with her own vegetarian child, knew exactly what to say. She responded:

“There are plenty of iron-rich foods outside the animal kingdom, and a well-planned vegetarian diet can provide an ample amount. Spinach, kale, collard and similar leafy greens are all good sources, as are beans, nuts, eggs and whole grains, including quinoa and wild rice. Iron-fortified cereals and pastas are also worth seeking out.”

We like the way you think!

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
