World Vegetarian Day is internationally recognized on October 1, and what better way to celebrate this year than by making a plan to go green with your meals.
Not only does a plant-based diet help save animals, it also cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions released into the environment when raising livestock, a process which also leads to deforestation and land and water degradation.
Vegetarianism is also proven to be healthier for our bodies since foods rich in fiber, phytochemicals, vitamins, magnesium and other dietary essentials not always found in meat can help reduce cholesterol, lower the risk of heart disease and combat weight issues, among other benefits.
Tweaking what we eat is easier — and more affordable — than ever thanks to the rise of several convenient grocery delivery services that expertly cater to vegetarians interested in scoring World Vegetarian Day deals.
Shop Organic Foods with Walmart+ and Get Free Same-Day Unlimited Delivery
Walmart’s brand new membership program, Walmart+, now offers subscribers free unlimited deliveries on items, including groceries, often as soon as the same day an order is placed. In addition to Walmart’s huge range of vegetarian selections, the retailer also has an organic shop where you can find everything from fruits and vegetables to meatless frozen meals.
Right now, you can get a 15-day free trial of Walmart+. If you decide to keep the service, pay either $12.95 per month (a total of $155.40 annually) or $98 to receive a full year of benefits at an almost 37% discount.
