Being an example

Seneca says that the best way to spread a virtuous approach to life, is to live virtuously. Instead of preaching over dinner, behave in a virtuous way and others will want to emulate it (be nice to the slaves, do not eat to excess, do not drink overly much)

Marie Kondo says a similar thing about Tidying: Instead of trying to force others in the family to tidy, you should tidy your own items. They will often end up doing the same for their own items when they see your results. (Anecdotally, this worked for me)

This applies to Vegetarianism of course. People react badly when you tell them that their eating habits are immoral (or however you justify it). This may not be the most efficient way of spreading the diet then. Simply being obviously vegetarian might be better on the personal level.
