Ad: Do it for someone you love. Tonight, make it vegetarian.

Visit our Going Veg section for recipes, starter kits, nutritional information, and tips to get you started as a healthy, happy herbivore!

Being involved in BVS changed my life. It has increased my ethical awareness, my feelings of self-worth. I can’t imagine going back to the way things were before. BVS has been an unbelievably positive experience.”
