Vegetarian Awareness Month

October 1 kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month with World Vegetarian Day!

So once again, I am promoting plant-based diets.  Research continues to promote wholesome foods and a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables to optimize health and disease management.

Whether you are a carnivore or already a plant lover:

  • Try at least one meatless meal this month.
  • Make half of your plate vegetables.  
  • Instead of snacking on candy and chips, reach for sweet fruit and crisp vegetables.
