Parents often encourage their teenagers to be independent and to make their own decisions, but sometimes those decisions don't fall in line with the rest of the family. The choice to try a vegetarian diet is likely to be one of those decisions. A teen's decision to become a vegetarian need not upset family meals. Try not to over-react, talk with your teen about his interpretation of a vegetarian diet. There are degrees of vegetarianism. A semi-vegetarian diet will exclude red meat, but might include fish or fowl with grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, milk and eggs.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - It's not the kind of grocery store where you can walk in and ask, "Where's the beef?" The Golden Soybean, a vegetarian health food store that opened this month at 215 W. Main St., doesn't sell beef, pork or poultry, although customers can buy an ersatz version of hot dogs, burgers and chicken patties made from textured soy protein or wheat gluten. Some products in the store use a play on words. There's "beaf" and "jerquee" instead of beef and jerky.

It was the ham that sneaked up on me. I don't know why. [cont. from lifestyle ] If you asked me what my favorite meat is, I'd say grilled bluefish or fried chicken or steamed crabs or roast turkey or even kielbasa. Depending on who you are, I might even say sushi made with raw tuna fish. But I wouldn't say ham. Maybe that's why it took me by surprise. All of these animals have been pursuing me since last year, when, after years of thinking about it, I finally became a vegetarian.

Dear Lynne: My meat-and-potatoes family is working at easing away from the meat and getting nonwhite vegetables onto our dinner plates. A narrowing budget is the reason, but it's tough changing old habits. We've got big appetites and we love our mashed potatoes. Do you have a recipe that could steer us in this direction? -- Robin in Syracuse Dear Robin: Those mashed potatoes are a good starting point because they accept almost any other dish, and half the battle's won since your family likes them.

HAGERSTOWN - An influx of new people to the area is one of the factors putting a strain on the resources at the Community Food Bank at St. Mark's Lutheran Church. "We've never closed our doors, and we don't want to now, but our shelves have never been this empty," volunteer coordinator Beth Stouffer said Tuesday. At the close of Monday's workday, nearly all of the food had been given out, Stouffer said. A family from Michigan visited the food bank just recently. Others who are not from the Washington County area have also been seeking - and getting - help, Stouffer said.
