Mushroom Jalfrezi Recipe
Somebody asked me are you celebrating world vegetarian day..."I said What? Now do we have a day to celebrate vegetarian day?? I was totally unaware of this celebration/day...What is World Vegetarian Day? Where did it all Start?
North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union in 1978, "To promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism It brings awareness to the ethical, environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.
I'm a Happy Indian. We need not celebrate vegetarian day 90% of our home cooked daily meal is all veg and we thoroughly enjoy simple living..World Vegetarian Day initiates the month of October as Vegetarian Awareness Month, which ends with November 1, World Vegan Day, as the end of that month of celebration. Vegetarian Awareness Month has been known variously as Reverence for Life month, Month of Vegetarian Food, and more.
