Celebrate Vegetarian Awareness in Ellicott City
Eat your veggies; October is Vegetarian Awareness Month.
Established by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977, the purpose of the day is to celebrate the health and animal awareness that one supports by choosing to be a vegetarian.
Although leafy salads and vegetables come to mind as eats that vegetarians prefer, there are so many ways to keep a balanced diet while avoiding meat.
At Tersiguel's, there's a chickpea crepe with herbed goat cheese on the menu. East Moon Bistro has tofu in peanut sauce and tons of other vegetarian stir-fry and sushi options. Or head to Great Sage in Clarksville, which was the winner of our 2012 Howard County Readers' Choice award for best vegetarian restaurant.
