As the family—and eatery—next door become vegetarian, it might seem like just a passing fad, but this approach to eating has been around long before suburbs or franchised restaurants. Born about 569 B.C., the Greek philosopher Pythagoras (the great mind behind the Pythagorean theorem studied in geometry class) earned the title “the father of vegetarianism” by promoting a fleshless diet. But even he wasn’t the first; meat free diets have been promoted throughout time for physical, religious, and ecological reasons.
