Healthy eating: Go veggie
Contributed by VeggieGirl
Around 1,000 people all over the UAE have taken a health pledge to be
vegetarian for one week.
This is part of the Meveg festival – a first of its kind event
organised by a group of volunteers and supported by the Health
Ministry to encourage people to go green and eat more veggies.
As an incentive, 23 Choithram outlets and over a dozen restaurants
will offer discounts on green foodstuff for people who take up the
pledge to be vegetarian for seven days. The UAE Meveg festival will
end on June 7.
