How to celebrate World Vegetarian Day?

- Try a restaurant’s meatless menu. Are you the kind of person who quickly scans the vegetarian options on the menu before moving on? Today, take advantage of the chance to look into the vegetarian options and choose a vegetarian supper. The future? It might even be tastier than that steak.
- Go shopping at a farmer’s market. Your local farmer’s market likely has some of the tastiest and freshest produce available. You may discover a wide variety of meatless dishes to suit any taste or mood now that fall is in the air, including pumpkin!

Why we love World Vegetarian Day?
- It benefits the environment. Going meatless helps the environment by saving fossil fuels in addition to the animals. Did you know that whereas producing 1 calorie of beef requires 78 calories of fossil fuel, producing 1 calorie of soybeans only requires 1 calorie? That makes the manufacturing of meat 780% more efficient!
- It benefits your physique. On a vegetarian diet, you often eat a lot of the nutrients that are sometimes absent from meat, such as fiber, folic acid, vitamins C and E, magnesium, unsaturated fat, and a ton of phytochemicals. Lower cholesterol, a lower risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, and a healthier weight result from this.
- Vegetarian cuisine can be tasty. It’s a common misconception that meatless diets are boring and unappealing, but that’s not always the case. Veggie-based pancakes can be made using almost any vegetable. Pizza is still a viable option (as long as it doesn’t include sausage). Ice cream is ok. Who said vegetarians can’t enjoy themselves?
