The View's Take On Ashton's Controversial Ad!

The ladiez of The View never shy away from their hot topics, and today was no exception.

On this morning’s show, the women discussed Ashton Kutcher’s Popchips ad, which we mentioned got pulled for its offensive nature — whether intentional or unintentional.

Check out the women’s opinions (above)!!

They definitely bring up some good points, as Joy mentioned — why not just have an actual Indian actor play the role???

And perhaps the best point of the discussion — yet another gem from Joy — “why does Snooki pretend to be Italian?" Ha!

Truer words, friends. Truer words.

Non-Carbohydrate Based Vegetarian Recipe Ideas!

Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AAdviceRecipesVegetarian

Veggie chili

We know there are plenty of vegetarians out there and they aren't just eating bread every meal!

Many newcomers to the lifestyle rely too heavily on carbohydrates in their effort to avoid meat and don't know where to get their protein from.

A FitPerez reader who has recently become a vegetarian wants to avoid eating too many carbs and wrote to The Hot Plate's Amanda Garbutt for help, asking:

I've recently become a vegetarian and most of my meals are carb based. Do you have any recipe ideas for vegetarians that don't involve pasta, pizza or bread? I could really use a change!


According to Amanda:


Absolutely! There is such a myth that because you don’t eat meat the only thing left are carbs! It’s like all of a sudden all the protein disappeared.

Some great recipe ideas are vegetarian chilis with beans and veggie meat to ensure that you are getting tons of lean protein and iron. Other easy tricks start with the perfect sauce. Try picking up some pre-prepared Indian or Thai curry sauces. Make sure to check the label for low fat and sodium content, but they transform any simple dish into a masterpiece. Try sautéing chickpeas, spinach, cherry tomatoes with a Madras curry paste then just pour over a little whole grain rice for a complete meal. It is so important for vegetarians to watch their iron and protein intake!
