Happy World Vegetarian Day!
October 1st marks the kick-off to Vegetarian Awareness Month. I’ll admit, I have many carnivorous friends that have found that they can go a day without eating meat. In fact, some even have even done it without realizing it.
Vegetarian and vegan food options are interesting, exciting and, best of all, delicious. Go through my site and find some new dishes and recipes. Try them, and let me know what you think. If you’re still eating meat try going a day, a week or even a month and explore all the possibilities of cooking without meat. You may never go back to “just the same old chicken” or the tried-and-true standby meatloaf. There are many vegetarian dishes that will not leave you hungry and are much quicker to make than many traditional meat dishes.
If you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, cook a meal invite your meat-eater friends over for a meal. Buy a friend a vegetarian cookbook. Treat someone to lunch at a local vegetarian restaurant. They may be surprised that they can survive that one meal without eating meat…and then continue the trend. And, perhaps, send them a link to this site. (Hello shameless plug!)
More information about Vegetarian Awareness Month can be found on the North American Vegetarian Society website.
