Green Your Fourth: Vegetarian Grilling

Grilled tofu Independence Day is, from sea to shining sea, a glorious holiday. This year, your festivities can help protect those purple mountain majesties. This week’s tips tell you how.

Tip #2: Cut back on meat.

What’s going atop your coal-free grill? May we suggest a few excellent vegetarian options? A U.N. report says that raising livestock for food creates more pollution than all modes of transportation combined, so this is something to take into account. If cutting meat and dairy out of your Independence Day party isn’t an option, consider barbecuing fewer animals and supplementing those calories with salad or corn. And when choosing your protein, whether it’s beef, tofu, or tempeh, look for an organic label.

Tell us: What do you plan to grill this Fourth?
