October is Vegetarian Awarness Month


October 1 is World Vegetarian Day and kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month.

In honor of that, a local hospital has offer Five Tips for a Vegetarian Diet, which, if nothing else, can give you a little insight into what eating more of a plant-based diet can do for you and your body, even if you’re not vegetarian or vegan.

A good resources is a Web site called GoVeg.com, where you can get a free vegetarian start kit.

I, personally, subscribe to Vegetarian Times, where I have learned a lot and have dozens of amazing recipes at my fingertips..

(I recently tested VT’s African Chickpea and Spinach Soup and it was AMAZING.

And, if I haven’t mentioned it before, check out VegMichigan.

I volunteer as editor of VegMichigan’s monthly newsletter and monthly news updates. It’s a great resource for information and vegetarian or vegan events, potlucks, information and more, including the annual MeatOut which, at the local level anyway, has been renamed VegFest and is scheduled to be at Ferndale High School in April.

OK, I think I’ve inundated you with far too many links, so I’ll leave it at that. If you ever know of any vegetarian-friendly news or events, feel free to post here or let me know!
