1st October is celebrated as World Vegetarian Day or World Meat-Free Day and people from all over the world are trying to go meatfree for one day. To promote joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism, this day was found in 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society. The main motto to celebrate the day is to raise the awareness of the positive effects of a vegetarian lifestyle on humans. Now, whether you’re veggie or not, you should relish this day with great enthusiasm and happiness.

Now today, we are discussing how can you celebrate World Vegetarian Day as there are many reasons to enjoy this day:

  • If the people don’t eat meat dishes once in a week, then it will help them in many things and also prevent chronic conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity. It has been observed that now in many restaurants, schools and catering services in over 25 countries participate in Meatless Mondays across the world.
  • There are many spectacular wedding ceremonies, where the menu items are only vegetarian with hors d’oeuvres, entrees and desserts that make the event lavish. To have veggie food at the parties and other official events will not lessen your enjoyment at all.
  • Almost everyone loves to eat dessert, especially if there is cake. But, for sometime forget the cream and chocolate ones, which are used as topping on the cake. And, try veggies desserts, such as carrot cake, beet-root cupcakes, avocado cookies and celery cheesecake rolls and spinach ice cream. You can also try homemade cucumber, lemon Popsicles.
  • Instead of starting your day with a cup of tea, try veggie smoothies that are the best nutrition packed mix of vegetables. Spinach, kale and broccoli are the most popular ingredients, which are used to prepare smoothies. Apart from these, you could also go with tomato, lime or pepper that promote healthy digestion and can reduce hypertension.

At last, I would like to say that no matter how much tasty your non-veg dishes are, but they can never replace the vegetarian food.
