October Is Vegetarian Awareness Month

October is Vegetarian Awareness Month.  For me, vegetarian awareness is 12 months out of the year, but for those of you who are interested in learning more about a vegetarian diet there's no better time than now!  I became a vegetarian 16 months ago and I have never looked back.  I'm a solo vegetarian in my house.  My husband and kids eat meat and you know what, that's okay with me!  I still cook their meat for them and I would never try to force them into a vegetarian diet.  I've had some wonderful fellow moms comment on past posts of mine that are also solo vegetarians in their home as well.  I'm not alone, hooray!

Tonight I came across this great infographic by RetailMeNot in support of Vegetarian Awareness Month.  This infographic brings up a lot of reasons why I don't eat meat, in addition to not wanting to harm animals for food of course.  The benefits I love that are brought up in the infographic (which I posted below) are lower cholesterol, a lower risk of cancer, and for overall health. Check it out!
