Maybe it was the back-to-school rush, or the fact that it was a short week thanks to the Labor Day holiday. Whatever the reason, this week flew by! But it was not without some great veg news teen vegetarians can use, and recipes for you to digest this Friday. Here's our roundup of this week's top posts.
Food for Thought
Did you hear about the first public vegetarian elementary school, in Flushing, NY? Turns out, the school has become a model for healthy living—no surprise! Thanks to @HealthyEats and @StrongBuzz for bringing us this one.
Vegetarian school lunches are becoming more popular around the country, too. @V4Veg brings us a blog post on @phillydotcom about how Philadelphia schools are testing out "Lean and Green" (aka meatless) days once a week.
Food for Eating
While we're on a "back to school" theme, how about an @OhSheGlows roundup of delicious school-safe (aka allergy-friendly) snacks you can make at home?
We love this idea for freeze-ahead veggie burrito bowls from @Eat8020
