Tomorrow, Oct. 1, marks the start of Vegetarian Awareness Month.
Since October is a busy month, with many causes competing for our attention, I didn't want the celebration of the plant based diet to go unrecognized. So I thought I would give the kickoff event, World Vegetarian Day, a shout out one day early. This way you can plan your meals for your Meatless Monday accordingly.
I also wanted to let you know that non-vegetarians, aka carnivores, are welcome to celebrate too! Especially since the health benefits of eating more veggies and less meat are plentiful. There are many ideas on how you can celebrate both the day and the month. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Wear informative vegetarian message T-shirts throughout the month
- Eat meat-free on October 1st or throughout the month
- Try the meatless options available at local restaurants and eateries
