Public School 244 in Flushing, NY has become the first school in the entire nation to implement an all vegetarian cafeteria, and our only question is what took so long?!?!
The chefs at the school have changed the menu from mystery meat and rubber tasting hot dogs to black beans, tofu and falafel.
So far the kids have been enjoying the heck out of it!
Here's what a school spokesperson said:
Ricky Martin recently announced that he was going vegetarian.
As soon as PETA found out, they started jumping for joy! Another convert!
PETA was so excited, that they honored Ricky by sponsoring a rescued chicken named Olivia in his name.
Score one for the animals!
Los Angeles public schools will no longer be serving meat to its students on Monday, and we think that's a very awesome thing!
This however is a free country, so if students want to bring in some meat meals from home - that is totally fine!
But for students who eat at school, on at least Mondays, they will have a menu that will feature
Dang, that's even more than enough reason to stop eating animal products!
Beyonce just revealed that she gained 57 pounds while pregnant with Blue Ivy in an interview with Oprah, and after we thought that the Queen simply snapped back into her vivacious curves without breaking a sweat — that's actually far from the truth.

McDonald's will be opening up its first ever vegetarian restaurant!
The meatless location will be opening in Northern India, near the Golden Temple in the Sikh city of Amritsar.
The spokesman for McDonald's in India said:
"It will be the first time we have opened a vegetarian restaurant. There is a big opportunity for vegetarian restaurants [in India] as many Indians are vegetarian."
The restaurant was already pretty food conscious in that part of the world because many Hindus and Muslims don't eat beef or pork, so chicken was already being substituted in most meals.
Now they're just cutting out all the meat.
Maybe they'd open one here in the U.S. because vegetarianism and veganism are becoming so popular.
We can only hope for such a healthy dream to come true.
