March 20th is Meatout Day!

On (or around) March 20, thousands of caring people in all 50 U.S. states and two dozen other countries get active to host educational events for Meatout- the world's largest grassroots diet education campaign. Activists distribute free food, educate their communities, and ask their friends, families, and neighbors to "kick the meat habit” and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Are there any Meatout events happening near you? Click HERE to find out.

I've been meat-free since 1995 and vegan since 2004. I'm definitely a vegan-for-lifer; I can't imagine NOT being vegan! You can read my vegan story HERE.

If you're new to veg*nism, look for a Meatout event near you. It's a great way to get information and connect with other veg*ns, and learn that there's plenty to eat without choosing meat! This is true even while traveling: click HERE to see my most memorable meals of 2010.

Other great vegan resources:
* The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine - the next 21-Day Vegan Kickstart is coming up on April 4th!
* Vegweb, Vegetarian Times, and the Post-Punk Kitchen pretty much cover all of your vegan recipe needs
* Having trouble finding certain special vegan items? Check Pangea, Vegan Essentials, and Food Fight!
