October: Let’s Rock the Veggies!

“Those who claim to care about the well-being of human beings and the preservation of our environment should become vegetarians for that reason alone.”
– Peter Singer, Animal Liberation (1990)

veggiesHappy Vegetarian Awareness Month! Being a vegetarian is one of the best health and environmental decisions I have made in recent years and I couldn’t be happier with this lifestyle shift. Even my husband has come around to my new recipes and really doesn’t even notice when I put a meatless meal in front of him.

There are all kinds of great reasons to embrace a meatless life! Eating meat is one of the most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. In the United States alone, more than 260 million acres of forest have been clear-cut for animal agriculture – holy smokes. Over 7.3 million Americans are already vegetarians and the health benefits are proven and worthwhile: a vegetarian diet is associated with low blood pressure and cholesterol, better heart health and even lower rates of cancer. Who wouldn’t want these positive things for their body?!

So…in honor of the beginning of this great month and in hopes of sharing some of my personal knowledge and research, here are some of my favorite vegetarian articles, experiences and recipes!
