"Since my original "experiment" with going vegetarian back in the new year of 2011,and becoming a permanent vegetarian in August of that same year, this site has helped me every step of the way. I had never cooked a bean, never really even cooked a meal, and with your help, soon I was whipping up such delicious concoctions that, before too long, my boyfriend had converted to vegetarian too! Still today, when I'm in need of inspiration, or when I have a craving for a particular sauce or dish I "can't" have anymore,I'm searching your website. Thank you so much, so many people are veg curious, but don't know where to start, and this website is amazing!" - Ange R.
"I just discovered your website this evening, and I am impressed with the mass of information available. I have been a semi vegetarian for a number of years (No red meat), however I realize there is much more than that. I am a senior and am tired of complex recipes -- the simpler the better. And you seem to be the answer to this lady's prayers. Thank you very much." - Virginia D.
"I really enjoy your website and all the wonderful recipes! You are one talented lady!" - Pat McC
"Savvy Vegetarian is absolutely outstanding with their recipes!!! I never made lasagna from scratch, let alone a tasty vegan lasagna from scratch! To help aide my fear, I purchased Barilla's No-Boil Lasagna noodles. Pull the noodles out of the box and put it straight on the pan! When I went to the grocery store, they did not have shoyu sauce nor Tahini so for the pesto sauce, I bought pre-made pesto sauce and mixed in pine nuts. For the tahini, I substituted it with 3 Tbsp of peanut butter! BOY OH BOY did the lasagna come out TASTY!!! My meat-eating boyfriend shared the lasagna with his friends and they were in disbelief that a vegan dish could be so delicious! Thank you Savvy Vegetarian for always providing recipes for great and delicious foods!" - JoannaMae A.

"Thanks for providing the healthiest of the vegetarian recipe options out there, and thanks for choosing recipes that celebrate whole foods! In all the other sites, one must wade through so-called vegetarian recipes that try to 'mock' unhealthy foods before finding a few mediocre recipes that I've found pale in comparison to the gems that form your collection!" - Trish R.

Even my omnivore boyfriend likes the things I've been making! Having a website like this to continuosly refer to has made going veg for good really easy." - Elizabeth H.
"I stumbled upon Savvy Vegetarian a year ago when I was looking to start eating healthy. I tried Jamaican Red Bean Soup and it was DELICIOUS!

"Thank you very much for the 2 reports - they are exactly what I needed to read. I have been moving towards a vegetarian diet for over a year now. However, I have been feeling guilty and weak because I am still not totally vegetarian. So, I really appreciate your material which suggests I am actually doing O.K. in this transition. So many books make it sound like you need to become instantly vegetarian or else you're just not "with it". I really appreciate your sensible, balanced and positive approach."

" C.L.
"I do feel the comments and evaluation were helpful to me. They gave me a different perspective on the way I think of vegetarianism.
