Vegetarianism encouraged in many places

On my way to lunch, I was pleasantly surprised by a BMW with a "Love Us, Not Eat Us" car decal on it. Looks like VSS' distribution of these stickers and car decals didn't go to waste at all. It will be great if we have more of these "go veg" type of decals.

I got a trans fat flyer from the supermarket. Interestingly, one of the ways to reduce trans fat in the diet was stated as such "Replace meat in dishes with beans or bean products (e.g. tofu), peas and lentils on some days". Now, isn't this obvious it is telling people to go vegetarian on some days? This is also what vegetarians are doing to get their protein contrary to what some believed that being a vegetarian will be protein deficient. Another veg promoting statement I found was this "You should also ensure that your diet is rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables and wholegrains (e.g. brown rice, wholemeal bread)". Eat more wholegrains, vegetables and fruits - the same as eating less meat. Interesting, but if only the brochure was more direct.

That's so cool! You are right, the brochure could have been more direct, but I find that the subtle approach might reach a lot more people who would otherwise be threatened by overt vegetarianism. (Sadly)

For some reason, it's much easier for many people to approach veg*nism from a health perspective. Hey--whatever it takes!

I really hope they will get the subtle message and abandon the "meat is king" mindset :)
