A question for all my omnivore friends out there:  Would you consider cutting meat out of your meals once a week?  It might seem like an odd idea, but joining meatless Mondays has so many benefits!

Meatless Mondays is a non-profit group that started as a health awareness program in 2003.  Their goal is to reduce meat consumption in order to improve our personal health, as well as the health of our planet.

Vegetables on Meatless Mondays

Meatless Mondays has now become a food movement that is catching on like wildfire.  Michael Pollan, author of Omnivore’s Dilemma, introduced me to meatless Mondays when he suggested America get involved during an interview with Oprah. Michael suggested that by cutting meat out of our meals once a week will reduce our carbon footprint.  He also noted an additional benefit of meatless Mondays. “To the extent we push meat a little bit to the side and move vegetables to the center of our diet, we are also going to be a lot healthier.”

Adding more vegetables, beans, fruits and nuts to your diet will not only help your digestive and immune system, but it also has an external body benefit.  A vegetarian diet on Mondays will help you consume more vegetables that contain vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that help make skin healthy and clear.

And of course an added bonus: learn some fun new recipes along the way!
