The LetKbridge Herald Fourth Section Lethbndge, Alberta, Saturday, April Vegetarian cookery becomes popular but meal planning takes more time Paqes 33 to 40 Vegetarianism is an old and well-known type of diet which has in recent years become a popular method of cookery for housewives searching for meat substitutes The interest shown by women in the Lethbndge area prompted a "quickie course" in vegetarian cooking, says Niva Strand, course instructor But it does mean taking time out to prepare a menu for the week, taking extra care in the preparation of foods to make them attractive to see and appealing to taste "It's not only the rise in meat prices, but also the population explosion and the fact that so many of our foods are highly refined and many of the nutrients are she says Mrs Strand says the classes are not based on strict vegetarianism, as she makes use of milk and egg products as well as vegetables "It's a laco-ovo diet and teaches how to use less meat in family meal planning "We teach the basics of nutrition and follow the Canada food guide Except when it comes to meat and some fishes, we find substitutes she says On a meat substitute diet, fresh vegetables provide iron, proteins are found in wheat germ, glutpn, flour and soybean become top sources of protein as well "Those people who follow a vegetarian diet eat adquately and receive all that is necessary to maintain a normal healthy Nancy Childers, assistant instructor says Both women agreed that the preparation of a vegetable-type meal took a great deal more effort "You just can't go home and grab something off the shelf and say here it is, says Mrs Childers A meal planned without meat doesn't necessarily relinquish extra goodies like deserts milk shakes snacks or fresh drinks Course participants are given recipes for all the 'niceties" of life Helpful hints about cooking vegetables are also part of clasb instruction with Mrs Strand suggesting people take advantage of the multitude of fresh vegetables available to the consumer "There are more vegetables than just peas, corn and the odd bean or two And keep in mind that steaming vegetables keeps the nutrients in them, prepares them faster and leaves them tastier than the accepted boiling method When you boil a vegetable, you pour the juices down the sink and vitaminize the dram she says Although most meals are made from fresh products and from scratch some canned goods are now available in health stores Included on the list of shelf foods are products which are made to taste like chicken, balogna and sausages, but are made with vegetables and other substitutes In teaching the preparation and substitution of vegetables for meats, Mrs Strand stresses care must be taken to ensrue children as well as properly balanced meals "You can t just take the meat out of your diet and expect to keep healthy Nutrition knowledge is a must Vegetarianism isn t following a new food fad or trying out a crash diet A person planning to take on meat substitution as a way of life should remember not to lean too far to the left or to the right, but to keep knowledgeable and eat sensibly, she says Wholesome bread Homemade bread offers more than off the shelf products Below, vege- tarian cooking class teaches nutrition guide- lines, recipes Fruit juice Combination of juices makes good snack YOUR PRECIOUS FURS NEED THE CARE OF CANADIAN FURRIERS Scientifically conditioned vaults and we can clean and repair and re style too We can also clean your leather and suede coats the safe Furriers method We invite your inspection of our underwriters approved vaults Call 327-4i 3 for Bonded Pic -up CANADIAN FURRIERS PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLOC.
