Cheer Du Jour

A little cheer to forget your troubles, and better yet, to toast with a glass of bubbles!

October 1st – Happy World Vegetarian Day!

on October 1, 2012

Hooray! Today is a chance to try a vibrant vegetarian recipe, as the kick-off to Vegetarian Awareness Month. World Vegetarian Day was established in 1977, and leads up to National Vegan Day on November 1st. Visit to get inspired and learn about the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. You can even download a booklet that includes recipes and nutritional information. Just look at what you can do by incorporating vegetarian meals, according to the North American Vegetarian Society:

  • Reduce the risk of major killers such as heart disease, strokes and cancers while cutting exposure to foodborne pathogens;
  • Provide a viable answer to feeding the world’s hungry through more efficient use of grains and other crops;
  • Save animals from suffering in factory-farm conditions and from the pain and terror of slaughter;
  • Conserve vital but limited freshwater, fertile topsoil and other precious resources;
  • Preserve irreplaceable ecosystems such as rainforests and other wildlife habitats;
  • Decrease greenhouse gases that are accelerating global warming;
  • Mitigate the ever-expanding environmental pollution of animal agriculture.
