Vegetarian in New Orleans. I will be there during Mardi Gras, and need to find some good chow. (The previous question tagged with vegetarian and New Orleans was pretty disappointing). I will be in Jefferson Parish, mainly, and on a pretty tight budget.
Also needed- recommendations for good record stores in the Big Easy. I will be there next week.

My wife and two kids are trying to plan a vacation to somewhere warm to get out of New England in March - but we're tough to shop for.

The debate around the house this week is: Do cans of refried beans labeled "fat-free" count as vegetarian refried beans? Or does it have to SAY vegetarian on the label? One side says that if it's fat-free, the beans weren't cooked with lard and it's therefore vegetarian; the other side is not so sure.

I haven't seen my girlfriend in five months, and I'm going to visit her for three weeks very soon. I want to cook her the most amazing, mouth-watering, plate-licking, so-good-you-punched-your-mother-in-the-face vegetarian meals ever. [more inside]

I am: vegan, mildy exercise-induced asthmatic, non-car owning & often-biking, slightly scoliotic (not visibly, but there's back pain here and there), have virtually no access to exercise equipment other than a set of ancient free weights, weight bench, and mat, without much money. I desire hulking guns and beefiness all over. [more inside]

My wife and I were at IKEA last week and noticed a big batch of sheep skins for sale, rather cheaply. I know these are popular for some as car seats and the like, but we got to wondering, what happens to the slaughtered sheep from which they are taken? Do people still eat mutton at all? Whether or not one is a vegetarian, at least leather and similar hides presumably come from cows that are also slaughtered for their meat. But what happens to the meat of sheeps?

I catch colds with alarming frequency- five or six times a year. If I make any sort of contact with somebody else who is sick, I can expect to have what they have within a day or two. I'm 21, HIV negative (recently tested and long abstinent), a vegetarian with a healthy diet, I excercise frequently and I take vitamins. I'm also currently taking Lexapro for depression. My question is twofold: first, what's wrong with me? Doctors insist that I'm fine. Second, what can I do to keep from getting sick so often in the future?

Tomorrow we'll be cheering for the Greeks over the Portuguese. As such, we want to serve great Greek snacks and/or desserts (things we can put out and then forget about the kitchen for the rest of the game). Problem: two guests are vegans. Googling hasn't returned anything interesting or trustworthy. What I'd love is a recipe someone has made before and trusts. I don't want to get burned, since our budget is tight, and then we'd have no snacks. In a pinch, we're willing to make generically Mediterranean food instead, and I'll probably have hummus, at least. Any tips?

Healthy restaurant options in the Big Easy? I'm visiting New Orleans for a week with family, and I've been warned that the place should be called "the Big Greasy." Does anyone have recommendations for fresher, greener eating options? I've seen sites dedicated to helping people pick restaurants, but I'm hoping some here have personal Nawlins experience.

AtkinsFilter! Okay, not really. I am not
doing a low-carb thing nor do I wish to. I'm a vegetarian, which makes it hard. But therein is my dilemma, my analyses of my daily intake(s) show that I'm a little more carb-heavy in my diet than I need or would like to be. So I turn to the low-carbers for suggestions on foods that I can eat to help balance me out a bit. [More inside] [more inside]
