If you've been considering going meat free, or you're wanting to try some vegetarian recipes, what better time than Vegetarian Week.

Why choose vegetarianism?

There are a variety of reasons that people choose to cut meat out of their diets, from health issues and animal rights to environmental awareness. Did you know that changing your diet to plant-based is the biggest thing you can do to reduce your impact on the planet?

Due to land use, water use, animal feed production, animal 'emissions' and other factors, animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all of the worlds transportation systems combined.

Taking the first step

Some people choose a semi-vegetarian diet first where they eat meat less frequently and in smaller quantities. This is a flexitarian diet, and this is often the first step towards vegetarianism.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a vegetarian, visit the Vegetarian society where you can find tips, healthy eating guides, recipes and more. You can also follow the vegetarian society on social at Facebook - The Vegetarian Society, Twitter - The Vegetarian Society and Instagram - The Vegetarian Society.
