Thanks, OP, for posting the link. Some of us -- and I speak from firsthand knowledge
-- are struggling with newly diagnosed diabetes, are mortally fearful of the prospect of insulin injections, and are therefore much more attentive to what we eat. The temptation is enormous to declare a dietary holiday during the Christmas season and on "special" occasions like a cruise. This initiative on HAL's part is welcome news.
Of course, vegetarian and even vegan dishes are not necessarily low-fat or low-calorie or low-carbohydrate. So, I'm resolved to exercise both restraint in MDA and myself in the fitness center! I wonder, do the menus list the number of carbs per serving for the vegeterian/vegan options?
P.S. This is what I thought the "Healthy Cruising" thread was going to be about.
