The past two months have brought us depressing news about the collapsing global economy, the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, and the devastating effects of climate change.
March is the bearer of good news about the beginning of spring, blooming flowers and the Great American Meatout. Now in its 25th year, the event has grown into the world's largest annual grassroots diet education campaign. It provides everyone with a superb excuse to kick their meat habit and get a fresh start with a wholesome, nonviolent diet of vegetables, fruits and grains. The date is March 20, first day of spring, symbolic of renewal and rebirth.
The Meatout diet is touted by major health advocacy organizations and leading health authorities. It's made so easy now by the rich selection of delicious meat and dairy alternatives in our local supermarkets. It's supported by free information from www.tryveg.org, and www.chooseveg.org.
