Vegivores: Fervid Vegetable Lovers

Robin Raisfeld and Rob Patronite at New York magazine posit that vegetables are the new meat and use the term "vegivore" to describe a different mentality when it comes to vegetables: "These chefs and their devoted clientele are less vegetarians than vegivores, a term that connotes fervid vegetable love rather than ardent meat hate.... For the vegivore, a vegetable can occupy the center of the plate, with meat adding flavor or functioning as a condiment." The term does have a different meaning when it comes to lolcats, however.
