Ever Heard of Meatless Monday?

Monday, March 5, 2012

I was introduced to this concept by a student of mine last year, so if you haven’t heard of it before now you’re not alone. Whether you have or haven’t, below is a short video to tell you more about it. It’s a great addition to my blog, which is dedicated not only to bringing you delicious recipes and scientifically sound nutrition information but also to examining the bigger questions of why what you eat matters. Even if you’re an omnivore with no intention of ever giving up meat, incorporating more plants into your diet—especially vegetables—is at the heart of a healthy, sustainable diet.

Man, am I in the mood for a juicy steak right now.


In all seriousness, think about it. Take the chili challenge. Search the internet and my blog for meat-free dishes to get you started. Text MONDAY to 30644 for a free recipe each week from The Humane Society. Learn more about Meatless Monday here. And please keep reading my blog for delicious, (mostly*) healthy ideas for cooking and enjoying plant-based meals and snacks. (Heart healthy guacamole, anyone?) Remember, it’s a journey that begins with a single step—or a single day—and I’m here to help.
