VB6. No, it's not a tomato cocktail or the latest version of a computer programming language. VB6 is short for Vegan Before 6, the increasingly popular veggie-heavy diet that converts say can do wonders for both the body and the planet.

Coined and devise by food writer Mark Bittman, the regime is pretty self-explanatory: No animal products, processed food or simple carbohydrates during the day. After 6 p.m., anything goes.

Earliest Citation:
You mention here that you had cooked rice on hand. Well, since becoming "VB6", I've begun to have many cooked things "on hand". I put 4 pots on the stove at once and fill each with about 1 lb. with dried legumes, or rice or grains. Then into zip lock bags and into the freezer.
