World Vegetarian Day Oct. 1

Sunday, Oct. 1 is World Vegetarian Day, to lead into October as World Vegetarian Month. It was begun in 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society as a way "to promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism."

If you're not a vegetarian, it's a good day to give going meatless a try. If you are a vegetarian, it's a good day to share information with friends who might be curious about your lifestyle or to do some reading yourself to learn more. Or if you're vegetarian, maybe try going vegan for the day.

You can find out more about the day here and get some tips on things you can do to celebrate -- such as holding a potluck dinner or dinner party for friends or putting up fliers.

Want to send friends an e-card to mark the day? You can find several at this site. Cute!

I couldn't find any local events planned to celebrate World Vegetarian Day, which is a shame. If you know of any -- or have some ideas of things to do -- please share them!

Coming up: Julie and I will let you know what vegetarian treats you can find at the Dixie Classic Fair.

Nice entry. And good to get to this before the actual day, unlike my blog, Cooking With Ideas. (http://www.cookingwithideas.typepad.com

Maybe next month, you girls can join us for our monthly vegan pot luck dinner. While the people are very nice and the speakers are informative, one of my favorite benefits is to be able to taste vegan dishes and if I like it, get the recipe. Details can be found here:
