9 Easy Ways To Celebrate Vegetarian Awareness Month

If you are not a vegetarian, but, like me, are increasingly eating more vegetables and less meat, here are some tips for you:

  • Observe Meatless Monday. This is a growing trend, and is a perfect way to kick off the month by eating meat-free for Vegetarian Awareness Day. You can also try to do this throughout the month and have a variety of vegetables to keep your diet interesting.
  • Educate yourself about the nutritional benefits of a vegetarian diet and find out the other ways that it can benefit you.
  • Go for one whole day as a vegetarian and tell friends and family you are doing this.
  • Host a meatless meal or potluck with your friends. This will help all of you get more tasty recipe ideas and become familiar with different veggies.
  • When you dine out, try the meatless options and encourage your friends to do the same.
