LA has become a major hub of vegetarian and vegan activity with cool restaurants and festivals. It is nice to see the city embracing the vegan lifestyle and influencing everyone to try compassionate eating and living. The 7 day pledge of eating no meat is doable and a good way to try new meals with a plant based focus. Taste buds do change and learning to enjoy vegetables as the main course just takes trying new recipes and appreciating the flavor and freshness of well cooked food.
US Vegetarian Week has a lot of momentum behind it with more people trying veganism and vegetarianism in 2013. Hopefully the one week pledge will turn in the two weeks and then three!
