For some of us, this has meant a full conversion to vegetarianism or even . . . gasp . . . vegan eating. The reaction for most, however, has been to add a little extra lettuce to our burger fixin's or maybe even an extra helping of beans to our plates. Hey, even baby steps are good when it come sto our health and the environment.

If trying, or even finding, tasty, meat-free meals has been daunting for you, the folks at Grubwithus are pairing up with some of the city's best restaurants to provide you with a no-brainer of an option - a week of family-style, meatless meals. Jan. 16 - 20 is Veggie Week at Grubwithus. All you have to do to enjoy one of these delicious,sitdown dinners is sign up! You pay for everything (even the tip!) in advance. Any drinks you buy at the restaurant are yours to cover, of course. Check out some of the meals on the list:
