†My sister's boyfriend is a vegetarian....he has introduced our family to many delicious foods. Is there anywhere in South Jersey that I can get freshly juiced wheat grass that you know of? Please send me info: D. Olson Mt. Laurel NJ.†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
Dear Ms. Olson,
There is a juice bar in the Crispin Square shopping center at Church St and Church Rd. They have fresh organic juices and are going to have Wheat Grass soon. Their name is Tech Nutrition. (856) 810-8850. Keep me posted of your findings.

†Iím currently on a
diet called the 40-30-30. In it it says for my weight(195) and my activity
level (about 6 hours a week aerobic and 2 hours weight lifting) that I should
be eating 130 grams of protein. Does this seem like too much. Iím not really
trying to lift weights to get huge, just to burn fat. Could you tell me what
you think, or give me a few links of websites to help me out? I thank you very
much for taking the time to read this.††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††Ryan
†You might want to
read the Vegetarian Resource Groups sports nutrition guidelines for vegetarian
athletes. It explains about dietary needs and has a meal plan. It is online at:
http://www.vrg.org/nutshell/athletes.htm. You might also find this excerpt from
an interview with Jane Black, a champion vegan bodybuilder, interesting: Many
athletes are concerned about adequate protein intake. Explaining her experiences,
Jane says, "According to various elite weightlifting coaches, protein
requirement for a highly competitive weightlifter is 2 to 2 1/2 grams per kilo
of bodyweight. If I adhered to that, I would be eating about 150 or so
grams of protein, which I feel is ridiculous. I eat probably about 60-75. I
have never had a problem building strength. The variables for strength building
vary greatly for individuals, - genetics, general state of health, and training
program. All of these factors and more must be
monitored ongoing if a person wants to take on a sport, or build strength or explosive power, which Olympic lifting is all about. I fully believe that a person can be incredibly strong as a vegan. If you are going for a bodybuilder 'look,' i.e. extreme hypertrophy, low body fat, a vegan diet will have its drawbacks, but then I would challenge you to ask yourself why that is important to you. Most of the
pictures of contest ready bodybuilders on popular magazines [used] a ton of unnatural and pathological dietary practices to achieve that look."
†I am a stay at home
mom. I am raising my child vegetarian and would like to meet other mothers
around the central NJ area that have kids my daughters age (around 1 year old).
Do you know of any place that I could go to where I could find this. I think
its important that my daughter have friends with the same values. Any info is

You could contact your local LeLeche League and see if
they know of any, groups with your interests. Many LLL members tend to form
groups as their babies get older. Breast feeding moms aren't always vegetarian.
However, many are and tend to move in that direction when they†discover how much healthier it is for their
children. Regular LLL meetings
have a series of topics that they†
follow. One is on nutrition. Would be a great one to attend. Let me know
how you make out.

†Methyl bromide is
widely used in California to grow strawberries, grapes and other crops. In
1998, nearly 14 million pounds of methyl bromide was used in California, making
it one of the largest methyl bromide-using regions in the world. Methyl bromide
is a potent nerve toxin that is extremely dangerous to people and the
environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies the chemical
as a Toxicity Category I toxin, and it has caused birth defects and
brain/nervous system damage to laboratory animals. Methyl bromide, which
depletes the Earth's protective ozone layer, is scheduled to be phased out in
industrialized countries in 2005.
