Meatless Mondays

What do all these photos have in common?

That's right, no meat! Have you heard of Meatless Mondays? It started as a campaign to improve individual health and the health of the planet. I think it's pretty cool that several of our American Presidents proposed No Meat Mondays during the world wars.

I'm not selling vegetarianism, but I am promoting more vegetables in your diet. I think one day designated to vegetables is a great idea, because we could all stand to benefit from more antioxidants, fiber, minerals and vitamins. Eating vegetarian all day, every Monday is a great way to try new vegetables and recipes. The website is a great resource to help you get started as well as this, this and this in the kitchen.

Let me know if you try to eat Meatless on Mondays! Or if you already are...

I eat meatless every day but I have a few friends and we do "veggie wednesdays" not really a cool ring to that but point being I agree it's a wonderful idea.

Alyssa, I love that idea :)
Thanks for sharing.

I was vegetarian for almost 6 years until 2010. I'm enjoying being an omnivore again but I do meatless mondays as part of my effort to eat meat conscientiously. I also buy local and organic whenever possible. I definitely think you can enjoy a varied diet and "eat green."

Heather, I totally agree. I eat mostly vegetarian, but I do crave chicken in the winter months :)

Hey Adrienne!

It's really funny you posted this because I have a BIG announcement on my blog about meatless Mondays coming up!
I am always a meatless girl, but I think this initiative is awesome for the general public. I hope we start seeing some changes take place as consciousness rises!

All the best to you,
Sarah B
