A vegetarian festival is in Thailand every year. The festival lasts nine days. Millions of people stop eating meat for nine days. But many people do not eat meat also after the festival.

Vegetarian products are very popular in Thailand. Food companies often use pea or soy proteins instead of meat. People are happy. The products taste similar to meat.

Some companies use jackfruit. Jackfruit is a big fruit. It is yellow inside. It is perfect for vegetarian meals. It looks and tastes like pork.

More people around the world start to eat vegetarian food. Social media helps this trend. People have more information about meat. People like to cook vegetarian meals.

Difficult words: vegetarian (a person who does not eat meat, or a meal that is without meat), protein (a part of food that is important for a healthy body), trend (how something changes through time).
