Today is World Vegetarian Day!!! You can order a free vegan starter kit from PETA to learn more about it. Even if you don't commit to a complete vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, you can help save the animals and the planet (and your health!) by cutting back as much as you're comfortable with doing.
According to USA Today, there has been an increase of 300% in the number of vegetarian adults in the past 18 years. 47% of adults consume one or more vegetarian meals per week. There has also been nearly an 800% increase in vegetarian restaurants. This is all terrific news!
