Don’t worry if you’re not a vegetarian (I’m not, after all!), you can still join in!  The North American Vegetarian Society suggests:

Eat meat-free for the day or throughout the month
Learn how a vegetarian diet can benefit you personally
Try the meatless options available at local restaurants and eateries
Discuss vegetarianism with your interested friends, family and co-workers
Host a meatless meal or potluck for your friends
Eat meatless meals on a regular basis

That list sounds a lot like my life…anyway, if you’re not already, try some meatless meals and learn a little about what you’re eating and where it’s coming from.  It’s hard to believe I’ve been eating a flexitarian diet for 9 months now–so far so good.  I definitely feel a better about myself now that I’m a more conscious eater.

*Not to be confused with PETA’s Hug a Vegetarian Day which was September 25th.
