  The Beet-Eating Heeb - The Beet-Eating Heeb is a blog for Jewish vegetarians, Jewish vegans, and all Jews whose concerns about food are not limited to how it tastes. The blog will feature:

•A serious examination of what the Torah has to say about food. The laws of kashrut matter, but there is much more.
•A curating and analysis of news about relevant food issues. The Beet-Eating Heeb spent 18 years in journalism, so he knows how to spot a good story, presumably.
•Interviews with rabbis, food experts, activists, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, pescatarians and carnivores. But BEH draws the line at freegans. (Google it. You’ll understand.)

This blog is not affiliated with Heeb Magazine.
