Why PeaceSmiths serves healthy, vegetarian snacks

Not everyone who comes to the PeaceSmiths Coffeehouse is a vegetarian. So, why do we offer a vegetarian menu of munchies?

PeaceSmiths, Inc. supports moving towards a plant-based diet, because that change can have a positive impact on the environment, our personal health, world hunger, animal welfare, and our personal economy.

Many of our attendees are vegetarian or vegan. So, we strive to serve vegetarian dishes, with at least some vegan choices, at our events.

Some suggested resources for learning about the value of a plant-based diet:

Healthy Planet is a local, Long Island group, which raises awareness about moving towards a plant-based diet. www.healthy-planet.org

The book, The Gradual Vegetarian by Lisa Tracy, is a classic, first published in the 1980’s, with recipes and ideas for moving towards a plant-based diet.
