Big fan of both Chinese and Japanese vegetarian dishes.
As noted above, I've been vegetarian since before the age of 25--as to why, the question should be, why isn't everyone at least vegetarian? I recognize that I should be vegan and I'm working on it.
Read, keep in touch with former colleagues about the state of the world, communicate with friends and family--particularly grandchildren--garden, play with my two cats.
Geezer, vegetarian for 50 years, 8 years living in Asia, [HK and Tokyo], in PDX since 1990. Have about 450 vegetarian/vegan cookbooks collected from all over the world, including some from early 1900s.
