 h1. Dear readers,

 You may have noticed that we've published lots of veg-centric posts on Culinate lately — about the season's lesser known veggies, about garlic scapes, about coleslaw, and about that fleeting treat with a loaded heritage — the ramp. 

 It's spring, and there's a bounty of [/columns/deborah/greenfood "green food"] right now; it's easy to veg out. Beyond any seasonal interest we have in vegetables, though, is our ongoing effort to eat more of them always — and sometimes to forego meat entirely. A new book, The Meat Free Monday Cookbook, advocates eating no meat at least one day a week. This book, published in Great Britain, with a foreword by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney, is just one example of how the Meatless Monday campaign is gaining steam; it's now in 23 countries.

 When we do decide to cook beef, we seek meat from reputable sources — and that often means grassfed beef. Frequent Culinate writer and friend Lynne Curry has a new book called Pure Beef; it's loaded with information about selecting and cooking artisanal beef and contains 150 recipes — including the delectable Grilled Top Blade with Arugula Salad and Scorched Croutons, which we've just added to Culinate.
