What is Meatless Monday you ask? Created as a public health awareness program in association with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for a Livable Future, its goal is to get people to forgo meat one day a week. The benefits (read the full list of benefits here ) are numerous. From limiting your cancer risk to reducing your carbon footprint, the small change of skipping meat on Mondays (or any other day of the week) can go a long way.
But what will I eat, you might ask? Are you trying to turn me into a vegan? No, instead I want you to think of new and creative things to eat instead of the traditional standbys of chicken and steak. It’s easier than you think to make Meatless Monday a weekly ritual…even for the biggest carnivores out there.
Need some inspiration? Try these recipes. I’ve personally made each one. Not only are they easy and delicious, but helped cure the occasional case of the Mondays.
