We’ve had it rough here in South Florida. First it was Zika, then it was Hurricane Matthew — two pests, one much bigger than the other. But things are looking up. October is Vegetarian Awareness Month, a month so fabulous it rates a special blogpost with special offers and opportunities.
October 22 — Pulse Innovation Miami, Miami celebrates the International Year of Pulses with an edible exploration of pulses (that’s dried beans). Presented by the American Pulse Association, it’s the Lollapalooza of legumes, complete pulse tasting. As seen in Meatless Monday and the chic-as-anything Miami Curated.
October 24-30 — Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit’s Wellness Week — mindfulness, pampering, vegan sensuality and Puerto Vallarta — what’s not to love? As seen in the Daily Meal and Miami Curated which is offering a too-good-to-miss reader discount. See you in Puerto Vallarta.
To celebrate putting more plants on your plate, Oldways, Meatless Monday and the Humane Society — some of my favorite organizations — have teamed up for Vegtoberfest. They — and I — invite you to say why you went vegan (or vegetarian) or why you stay vegan or vegetarian, just like I do here. Send pics, send personal stories to Vegtoberfest’s FB page Share it. Tweet it. And look for my own vegan story, coming soon. Want a hint? Here’s my big motivator.
