October is World Vegetarian Month

October World Vegetarian Month

October is World Vegetarian Month!

October was declared World Vegetarian Awareness month by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977.  The food holiday was adopted by its international counterpart in 1978.  As awareness of the benefits of plant based diets increases, so has the demand for delicious vegetarian and vegan fare. More and more restaurants are including meatless dishes in their menus.

Here are some of my favorite vegetarian and vegan recipes for World Vegetarian Month and beyond.  Feel free to link yours in the comments section.
