Grilled Artichoke and Quinoa Lettuce Wraps [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Quinoa adds a wonderful boost of protein to these gluten-free, vegan Grilled Artichoke and Quinoa Lettuce Wraps and the lemon brings some flavor and acidity to them. These wraps are also perfect for packing as lunch the next day, since they are best served at room temperature.

If cleaning fresh artichokes is not something you are into, use jarred artichoke hearts. Rinse them and drain them well before grilling.

One of the biggest causes of rain forest destruction is land-clearing for cattle grazing. Cows produce a lot of methane which contributes to global climate change. Run-off from farms causes eutrophication in rivers. Overgrazing causes erosion and desertification. Your diet is a very simple way to make a difference environmentally. And this is a vegan page.

NO my diet is a VERY painful, complicated and personally suffering way to change this and NO WHERE did it forewarn me of veganism. .

AND, my dear , Loretha, the majority of the farm " run off " issue is CROP based not animal. . pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides run off many many many times more than animal wastes. casuing even the fish in rivers near here to be left inedible from toxins. .

I WILL continue to do what I can in every way possible to help these issues SHORT OF condemning myself to a diet of sticks and bark .

well, LIFE itself is mostly bad things anyway and I refuse to ruin my life by adding yet more bad to it . MAYBE IF IO met a woman who cooked for me , shared my love of musioc and movies and wanted sex a couple times a day for the rest of life then I could afford to allow food to becoem a negative also .
