I've enjoyed Subway sandwiches for a long time. I was quite happy when they added cucumbers to their list of ingredients and am a big fan of provolone cheese although I have no idea where I got it from or when I decided to try it. The latest variety of flavored dressings and seasoned breads keeps a Veggie and Cheese sub from ever getting boring. I'd eat at Subway regularly if there was one near my office.
But this post isn't an add for Subway sandwiches. It's an add for vegetarianism. Subway has this big deal out where a whole sub is just five dollars. Certain ones are marked on the menu board. When we walked in to the restaurant, I noticed that the Veggie and Cheese sub was marked as being available for $5, but the price on the board was actually $3.99. Now, a half is the same price as the others at $2.50. But the plug here is that if you evaluate it, you will find more than just health benefits from eating vegetarian. Even if it's just occasionally, you can save money by choosing "rabbit food."
There was also an interesting comment on a website my husband sent me. Pay special attention to option #8 at www.50waystohelp.com. This is a website that focuses on saving the planet and our energy resources. (Now, if you want the truth, I'm not super green. I have my reusable cloth bags for groceries, but that's because drug reps have given them to me, and I hated to see them just take up space in a closet.) I am astounded at the amount of water it takes amount of rainforest land it takes to yield hamburgers, etc. So, for those who are humane, cheapskates, or are interested in preserving our environment, just take a look at what you put on your plate.
