VegWeek 2013

VegWeek 2013 is well underway, and there are some awesome deals to be had at local restaurants in Maryland and DC. It's especially exciting to see places not necessarily known for the veg-friendliness to be getting in on the game.

Inspired by awesome Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin, VegWeek encourages folks to consider living a vegetarian lifestyle by empowering thousands of people to pledge to choose vegetarian foods for at least seven days. My personal path to vegetarianism started similarly--by giving up meat for a week, a month, a year at a time and learning about awesome and delicious substitutions (not to mention healthier ones!)

Check out the VegWeek 2013 site here and pledge to go meat free (technically the week started April 22, but you can have your own timetable!)
