About  Kate

I'm passionate about vegetarianism, local food, and seasonal cooking. Through this blog, I hope to show readers that it's not difficult to eat a local, in-season, meat-free diet. While I've chosen to be vegetarian, I don't think it's necessary for every person to make that choice. However, even small, gradual steps towards plant-based eating make a big difference -- in our health, in the environment, in our mindfulness, and in the role food plays in our culture.

"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace."
-Albert Schweitzer

"Whether we change our lives or do nothing, we have responded. To do nothing is to do something."
-Jonathan Safran Foer
