Vegetarian Awareness Month

Vegetarian Awareness Month

October is responsible for promoting a lot of awareness. While everyone is blushing pink to raise awareness about breast cancer, we also wanted to turn a little green and talk about vegetarianism. People choose this lifestyle for varied reasons - some for health, some for animal rights, and some because they just don't like meat. Whatever the reason, they are sure to benefit from the many ways in which vegetarianism positively influences our health. Vegetarians enjoy longer lives, better cardiovascular health, save money, lose weight and even protect the earth.

Learn more about a vegetarian lifestyle and consider giving it a try for yourself during Vegetarian Awareness Month.
