This October, ditch your salmon & beef and hug your veggies because here are
7 Awesome Things About Being a Vegetarian!

1. A longer Lifespan

Although not all vegetarians are necessarily healthy, on average, refraining from eating meat has been linked to longer lives, with a recent study claiming a 12 percent longer average lifespan. 
All the more time to enjoy pasta!!

2.  Freezer can have more room for ice-cream! 

When you don't have to store meat in it, your freezer can become exclusively a dessert container full of ice cream . Everyone should be able to see the delicious benefits in this. Sure, vegetarians might also use the freezer for frozen veggies. 

3.  Being Friends with your environment
 It takes up to 16 pounds of soybeans and grains to produce 1 lb. of beef and 3 to 6 lbs. to produce 1 lb of turkey & egg. By eating grain foods directly, I make the food supply more efficient & that contributes to the environment :) Choose wisely!!

4. No deficiencies!


There is no nutrient necessary for optimal human functioning which cannot be obtained from plant food. In fact, veggies are a lot more healthy and takes less time in digestion! 

5. Shelf life differential- TRY THIS!!

 Plant foods last longer than animal foods. Try this experiment: Leave out a head of lettuce and a pound of hamburger for 1 day, which will make you sick?
Apples have the shelf life of 2-4 weeks and can last up to 12 months when kept in a refrigerator. Can you beat that? 

6. Stay Healthy and Disease free with Veggies!
Most meats, when cooked, produce an array of benzenes and other carcinogenic compounds. Cancer is infinitely easier to prevent than cure. Soybeans contain protease inhibitor, a powerful anticancer compound. You won't find it in useful quantities in animal based food.

7. Eat veggies and save more!
Health care costs are on the rise. Being healthier on a vegetarian diet means spending less on health care.Vegetarian foods tend to cost less than meat based items. So be smart &stay healthy!
