Meat Free May with Friends of the Earth

 
I’ve decided to sign up for Meat Free May, a campaign being run by the wonderful charity, Friends of the Earth.  It is asking for people to ditch meat and fish for a whole month and put veggie meals on the menu instead.  With so many new and exciting vegetarian recipes, reducing the amount of meat we eat should be easy and great for our health and environment. 
 
To help us all on the way, I will post up at least one vegetarian recipe from the website throughout the month of May.  I am going to start with my Kimchi and water chestnut and enoki mushroom stir fry. The combination of spicy flavours makes for a delicious marriage in Lotus wok heaven.
 
Have a look on the Friends of the Earth website for more information.
 
It’s going to be fun!

Tzu-Chi

Tzu-ChiI am a strong supporter of the charity, Tzu-Chi.

Tzu Chi Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1966 by Dharma Master Cheng Yen in the impoverished east coast of Taiwan. The Foundation has been contributing to better social and community services, medical care, education and humanism in Taiwan for over 45 years. Master Cheng Yen firmly believes that suffering in this world is caused by material deprivation and spiritual poverty. She felt that "lack of love for others" has been the root of many problems in this world. "To save the world, we must begin by transforming human hearts."

Mothers' Bridge of Love (MBL) - Help Chinese Children

Tzu-ChiMBL is striving to introduce an authentic China to the West and to disseminate information to people in China about the lives of adopted Chinese children and of overseas Chinese in the West. Through this bridge it is hoped that both cultures will be better able to understand one another. MBL was founded by Xinran, the Chinese authoress of The Good Women of China' and more recently, 'Sky Burial'. It is a registered charity and would welcome support or donations.
