Let me start by saying that I am very well aware that humane farming labels are sometimes misleading. Factory farms often label their products “humane” as a marketing ploy. The term “humane” is not defined or regulated by the USDA and therefore producers can use it as they please. You can read more on that here.

The vegetarian kitchen should have a complete set of recipes that can be put to use daily. You need easy recipes for lazy nights, nutrient and protein rich recipes for a balanced nutrition, and of course we can’t forget the meat eaters in our lives.
