World Vegetarian Day

Today is World Vegetarian Day

and the kick-off to Vegetarian Awareness Month!! It’s a world recognised celebration of joy and compassion and a great reason to get the veggie word out there; sharing the ethical, environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of vegetarianism with everyone!!

Being veggie is such a positive state-of-mind; it’s about showing compassion for all life, being aware and actively making a choice that not only benefits your body, mind and soul but also the lives of all creatures.

Vegetarianism is good for your health with a diet considerably lower in saturated fat, higher in a variety of nutrient rich foods and avoiding potential nasty hormones and additives found in meat products.

And, well, veggie food is simply awesome!! All the meat lovers out there, you don’t know what your missing :)

So why not join the celebration of all things veggie and get on board!

Whether your vegan, vegetarian, flexi-vegetarian or omnivore make a day or night of it and invite your friends and family round for a veggie feast to sample new and delicious foods and show-case just how awesome vegetarian food can be.

There is no better way to reach people than through their hearts and their stomachs. Cooking and sharing great tasting veggie food with those you love is a fantastic way to introduce people to the joys of being vegetarian.

Check out the recipes below for inspiration…

I have gathered together the most popular recipes here on Veggie num num and added a few of my all time favourites :)

This World Vegetarian Day or during Vegetarian Awareness Month why not share a veggie meal or two with your close family and friends so you can all celebrate the happy, healthy and positive possibilities of vegetarianism.

Happy Vegetarian Day!!
