Not that we need a specific month to be or become vegetarian, but if we did…October would be that month. October 1st has been designated by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) as World Vegetarian Day and the entire month is dedicated to vegetarian awareness and eductation.
Even if you’re not a vegetarian or never plan on becoming one, reducing your intake of meat will make big impacts on your health, the health of the planet and the lives of animals worldwide.
NAVS has a specific page dedicated to non-vegetarians. Since our mission at wannaveg is to encourage meat-eaters to go vegetarian one day a week, I thought it would be good to list their ideas.
• Eat meat-free for the day or throughout the month • Learn how a vegetarian diet can benefit you personally • Try the meatless options available at local restaurants and eateries • Discuss vegetarianism with your interested friends, family and co-workers • Host a meatless meal or potluck for your friends • Eat meatless meals on a regular basis
To find out more information on World Vegetarian Day/Month, check out NAVS webite. There you can find out how to organize an event, attend an event or just go it alone. No matter what your decision, try going veg for the month of October! It’s easier and tastier than ever to adopt a veg diet…even one day a week.
