October 1 is World Vegetarian Day, today we celebrate healthy living.
Vegetarian lifestyles yield improved health, a more humane treatment of animals and a cleaner, greener environment. If these benefits aren’t enough to change your mind, you haven’t tried a veggie burger.
While rabbits may be content to nibble lettuce leaves, this diet spans much wider than a plate of pea pods. Meals include spices, herbs and sauces. From burgers to burritos, entrees are more enticing than ever.
Still fear vegetarian choices equate to a lack of culinary enjoyment? Take a cruise around the Internet and you’ll be rewarded with recipes for chocolate brownies, fully loaded lasagna and much more.
Celebrate World Vegetarian Day by hosting a dinner party and serving up a menu of vegetarian courses. From a simmering ratatouille of vegetables and chick peas to piled-high burgers, your guests will discover an impressively orchestrated symphony of textures, flavors and colors.
You should probably serve your dinner indoors. The backyard rabbits and squirrels might get jealous and raid the patio table. Their herbivorous diet never looked, smelled or tasted so good.
