Celebrating World Vegetarian Day in Cincinnati

World Vegetarian Day is upon us, and with it comes day one of Vegetarian Awareness Month as I discussed in my last article (read here).

When looking for local happenings to help celebrate this vegetarian holiday, I realized something pretty sad: nothing is going on in Cincinnati to celebrate the occasion. Not completely surprising given we live in a town nick-named “Porkopolis”, but it definitely got me thinking...

With as many vegetarians as we have in this city, why on earth don’t we have something special going on to celebrate World Vegetarian Day?

Keeping that in mind, I am taking it upon myself to rally up my fellow vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike for some self-celebrating this October. Make it a point to get to one of your neighborhood restaurants and try some local vegetarian cuisine. You might be surprised to discover many veggie-friendly dishes on the menu at local restaurants that you thought were only good for burgers and chicken.

If you find your area eatery really is a meat-fest, then try checking out one of the awesome vegetarian restaurants listed here from the VegOhio website.

Making an effort to support a local veggie-friendly restaurant and having the occasional (preferably constant) meatless meal can not only open up a new world of eating for you, it helps make the world a little greener. Check out my article on the ecological benefits of being a vegetarian for more information.

Stay tuned for more articles to help celebrate Vegetarian Awareness this month including a review of Melt in Northside, hip spots to shop veggie in Cincy, recipes, veggie news and more. Also this month, check out the Cincinnati Lunch Examiner’s website (here) for some meat-eater insight on eating vegetarian.

 Make the most of World Vegetarian Day and try going meatless!

    I used to have a plaque that read:

    "I wondered why someone didn't do something.
    Then I realized - I am someone."

    Congratulations on your self-celebration. I'll be joining you!
