Did you know that October is vegetarian awareness month? Vegetarian awareness month tries to bring some light into what we put into our bodies, what we do to the animals, to the environment, to the planet.
How are you celebrating? In Chicago, there are some great vegetarian restaurants that you could visit as a way to honor this great philosophy of living. Or, if you feel inspired to cook, there are plenty of amazing vegetarian recipes you could try and share with your loved ones.
But awareness is key. It is time to stop ignoring the consequences of our daily meal choices and empower ourself with every single food decision we make everyday.
As far as myself, I love the vegetarian diet because it is a kind one. It is a diet in which all living beings are respected equally. I believe a vegetarian way of living is a win-win situation: Good for you, good for the planet, and good for Chicago.
If you are not vegetarian, I encourage you to at least try to go meatless once a week. It is not as hard as you might think, and you will be a part of a well-needed change in this world.
