Early Girl gets a nod from PETA

Veggies and meaties may sometimes butt heads here, but Asheville still catches the favor of high profile animal-rights supporters.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has named Early Girl Eatery Restaurant of the Month on its VegCooking.com Web site. The write-up highlights the menu’s tofu scramble and bean burger with eggplant spread, as well as the restaurant’s use of locally grown produce, but shies away from mentioning the meat items like the fried green tomato BLT or the catfish po-boy.

    I am a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish. My rule of thumb: I won’t eat what I am not willing to kill. PETA did the right thing by embracing Early Girl. They may play mortician to a few animal body part meals,but at least they are trying to be moral. I say celebrate small victories
