After fighting it for years,I have finally decided to become a vegetarian.Does anyone know of a really good cookbook? Also, anyone have any suggestions on what to do when eating out when there are only a Mcdonalds or chick fil a

in town? I am really excited about this lifestyle change and I really want to stick to it. Any suggestions?

trh8 - Cookbooks aren't really necessary. There are thousands of recipes (probably tens of thousands) online. We have a recipe section here, VegWeb is another good site, and of course you can always search Google for [google]vegetarian recipes[/google]. I usually just sift through them until I find something fairly easy that sounds good.

Michael's pretty much correct - you don't absolutely NEED a cookbook at all.

However, through a lot of trial and error and wasted food, I have learned a few things about Internet recipes...

ANYONE can write down a list of ingredients and call it a recipe.

A few tips:

MAKE SURE you try recipes from actual cooks/cookbooks/TV shows/reputable websites etc.

OR choose recipes with a few personal notes from the person who wrote/posted it,

OR choose recipes with a rating system,

OR choose recipes that have several reviews/comments written by people who've actually TRIED the recipe...

Stay away from those that just look like they're cut-n-pasted from elsewhere...

Yes, even a few of the recipes here on our dear VeggieBoards have not ended up as wonderful as I had imagined they would (*gasp!! I know! The horror) though rest assured, most are MARVELOUS!

A few of my favorites (besides here of course
)
