So who are we? Who is All-Veg.com?
My name is Rich. I am the owner and editor of All-Veg.com. The site was formerly known as not-just-recipes.com. We have recently changed the site, trying to make it easier to navigate and to provide what our readers want - great vegetarian and vegan recipes.
But About Us is about this site itself too. We'll get to that. First let me tell you more about us. We are ordinary people who love to cook and create recipes. We love to try recipes created by others too. That is why you will see submitted recipes, recipes from our readers, on the site as well as contributing organizations such as the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine or PCRM and the American Institute for Cancer Research. But many of the recipes on the site are those we have created in our test lab, also known as our kitchen. We want you to try them and we want to encourage you to submit your own recipes. We'll publish them with full credit.
I became a vegetarian about 6 years ago. I was somewhat concerned about my health. Not that it was all that bad but I certainly had a few "trouble areas" such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since becoming vegetarian my cholesterol has come down to well within acceptable limits. I still struggle with the high BP a little but that would go away quickly too if I could shake my salt addiction. I will continue to work on that.
As a few years went by I also realized that another thing was at play in my life when it came to my choice to become a vegetarian. Factory Farming. I have come to believe that Factory Farming is the scourge of modern times and will likely destroy us unless we change. Not only are the conditions for animals utterly deplorable in these farms but the existence of such farms threatens our natural resources as well. And don't get me started on all of the anti-biotics and growth hormones that factory farms pass along to us through the treatment of their animal stock.
So you think I would be vegan if I were so concerned about animals right? Well, I have gone back and forth between vegetarian and vegan and will likely continue to do that. As much as I want to be totally vegan I find it difficult - like I am lacking something in my diet that I should otherwise be getting. So I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I still eat eggs and some dairy products although I keep both to a bare minimum. Neither I nor the website are perfect and we make no judgements. We hope you will do the same and simply join us for some great recipes!
To submit a recipe you can look for the various SUBMIT RECIPE links we have sprinkled throughout the site, or on our NavBar to the left of each page. Or you can also click the link right here:

Well, this page is not simply about us. It is about the site as well, as I mentioned earlier. When we decided to take our love of cooking and developing recipes a step further we thought about a website. There are plenty of services out there who will let you build a website and they will host it. Some of those are very reasonable from a cost perspective and some are actually free. But I have learned that you really do get what you pay for,
That's why we chose Solo Build It as our host and web development platform. Whether you're a work-at-home mom, a small business owner or simply someone with a passion for something you would like to share with the world, Solo Build It or SiteSell is the ideal platform.
