Thanks to our guest blogger, northwestpharmacy.com, for the following article on those choosing a vegetarian and vegan diet in the USA.

We reached out to our favorite vegetarian bloggers to see how they cook up new and innovative dishes and what inspired them to chose a mostly plant-based lifestyle. They were also kind enough to send along their favorite fall recipes—all vegetarian and all tasty.
