Why am I a Vegetarian??

10 Sep

This is a post for all you readers who live in Puerto Rico…

This Sunday, September 14 the Centro Cultural Yoga Devanand is celebrating one of its signature Vegetarian Dishes Festivals…   presenting over 10 different vegetarian dishes completely karma-free to show how delicious vegetarian lifestyle can be. Kinda like the same thing I try to do here in KarmaFree Cooking.

Fest Platos Veg Sept 1A

 

The activity will start at 10:30AM with the Ofrenda de Amor, where we give God or the Supreme Being (however you prefer to call the higher power) in gratitude for all the blessings we receive each day.  It’s a practice taught at the Centro Yoga Devanand since its inception over 30 years ago, teaching how to be grateful without asking anything in return.  Afterwards, there will be a 30-min group meditation, followed by the short lecture “Why am I Vegetarian?” given by a group of Yoga Center members who will share their reasons and journey within the vegetarian diet and lifestyle.  It’ll be fun because you’ll be able to ask them anything you have on your mind about living as a full-time vegetarian in Puerto Rico.

To close out the activity, the greatest vegetarian buffet ever!!!!  With 10+ vegetarian dishes to choose from… or not to choose from, because certainly you can eat a little bit of everything – from salads and soups to natural juices and several desserts too!!  The donation for the activity is $15, which is much more economical than going out for lunch at any restaurant in San Juan.

I am planning to donate one of the dishes for the buffet… I am still deciding on what to make.    So if you would like to taste delicious vegetarian fare and meet me in person in the process, go by Centro Cultural Devanand on Sunday and you’ll be certain to have a great time with all of us.

If you need any additional information, please write me right here in the comments section or you can call the Centro Cultural Devanand at 787-273-0236.  And if you’re on Facebook, please click on GOING at the event page.  Hope to see you there!!!
