As the demand for vegetarian options continues to rise, a growing


number of grocers and restaurantsfrom fast food to four-starare
dishing out delicious, animal-free fare.

Why are so many people choosing vegetarian foods?


For better health. According to the American Dietetic Association,
vegetarians are reported to have lower rates of heart disease and
obesity, as well as lower cholesterol and blood pressure, than
non-vegetarians. Type II diabetes can also be prevented, and in some
cases reversed, with a plant-based diet.
For the planet. Animal agriculture is a leading cause of biodiversity
loss, resource depletion, pollution, and global warming, and
according to a United Nations report, generates 18% of all global
human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.
For the animals. Nine billion land animals are raised and killed for
food each year in the United States. With virtually no laws to protect
them, birds, pigs, and cows on factory farms are routinely treated
in ways that would result in legal prosecution if those same abuses
were inflicted upon the cats and dogs with whom we share our
homes. By choosing vegetarian foods, we can stand up for animals
each time we sit down to eat.
Whatever the reason youre exploring vegetarian eating, we
hope youll find this edition of our guide useful and your dining
experiences delightful. Its never been easier to savor vegetarian
cuisine in the City of Angels!
Warmly,

The hard-boiled truth about eggs. Meet Jane.


When Compassion Over Killing investigators found her at an egg
factory farm, one of her wings was pinned in the wires of her
cage. Painfully thin and dehydrated, she had struggled so violently
to free herself that her wing dislocated and her tendons ripped.
We rescued Jane, and after having her wing amputated, she
then enjoyed the rest of her life in freedom at a sanctuary where
she basked in the sun, scratched the earth, and ate her favorite
snackgreen grapes.

Six months after rescue

Nearly 300 million egg-laying hens are suffering in wire battery


cages in the US. Visit TryVeg.com to learn more and to discover
delicious egg-free recipes.

Moo-ve over dairy and beef. Meet William and Harry.


William and Harry were inside a truck with nearly 100 other
calves headed to be sold for veal or cheap beef. Sickly and
weak like many dairy industry calves, the two were emaciated,
hypothermic, and suffering from diarrhea so severe that they
were seriously dehydrated. Their bones bulged beneath their
flesh.Harry was so terrified of humans that he began shivering
whenever anyone came near. Now at Farm Sanctuarys LAarea Animal Acres, these two young calves are healing and
growing by leaps and bounds. With the help of the shelter staff, they are also learning to trust
and experiencing something almost no dairy calf ever does: peace. Visit William and Harry
today go to FarmSanctuary.org for details.
Check out TryVeg.com for more information about the dairy and veal industries, and how you
can make a difference for animals.

Other Veg-Friendly Options


Many restaurants offer vegan menu items or modifications.
Here are some suggestions and tips on finding delicious vegan
options almost anywhere. Have fun trying new cuisines and
cooking styles as you explore all the delicious veg food that
Los Angeles has to offer!

Asian Cuisine: Vegetarian dishes including


tofu, tempeh, and seitan are common. Ask if
fish sauce, eggs, and dairy can be omitted.
Ethiopian Food: Most Ethiopian restaurants
offer a wide selection of vegetable-based dishes,
including a veggie platter that lets you sample
them all!
Indian/Nepalese Food: Many dishes are
vegetarian. Check for dairy in the basmati rice
and naanwheat roti is typically vegan.
Mexican Food: Beans, rice, guacamole, and
salsa are all veg-friendly. Just ask if the beans are
free of meat/animal fat and if the rice is cooked
in vegetable broth.

Mediterranean Dishes: Popular dishes such as


hummus, baba ghanoush, falafel, grape leaves,
tabbouleh, and others are often vegan.
Pizza: Ask if the crust and sauce are
vegan and then pile on the veggies!
Chain Restaurants: National chains are
adding vegan options like Chipotles Sofritas.
Looking for something sweet? TCBY and Tutti
Frutti both offer dairy-free frozen yogurt!

When in doubt, just ask!


Burger joints may serve veggie burgers and
fine dining chefs often accommodate vegan
diners. If youre unsure of the options at a
new restaurant, call ahead so youll feel
prepared when its time to order.

This little piggy didnt go to market. Meet Jimmy da Snout.


Jimmy was born with rhinitis, a disease which deforms pigs
snouts. On modern-day factory farms, tens of thousands
of pigs are crammed into large buildings without adequate
ventilation. Respiratory illnesses are common, and thousands
of sickly piglets die every year before even reaching
slaughter weight when they are just six months old.
Typically, sick and deformed pigs are killed by the farmers, but
Jimmy managed to escape this cruel fate and found his way
to Farm Sanctuarys LA-area Animal Acres. Jimmy da Snout
charms all the sanctuary visitors with his gentle and friendly
personality, and loves to receive belly rubs and bananas!
Visit Jimmy today go to FarmSanctuary.org for details.
Check out TryVeg.com for more information about the pig
industry, and how you can make a difference for animals.

and want to make it better!
