11 Simple Steps for a Healthier & Happier ’11: Step 3

1/3/11: MEATLESS

Going meatless, even if just one day a week

It’s Monday. Back to school, back to work. Back home, and everyone wants to know, “What’s for dinner?” Well, we could have lentils, tofu, black beans, chickpeas, tempeh, nuts, seeds, legumes, cheese, yogurt, eggs… any number and combination of meatless forms of protein along side vegetables and whole grains.

It’s Monday, we’ve jumped on board the internationally recognized “Meatless Monday” train, and it’s quickly gaining steam.  The concept is simple: for environmental, climate change, economic and personal heath reasons, replacing meat with a non-meat protein just one day a week makes a significant amount of sense.  If you are not yet part of the movement, check out http://www.meatlessmonday.com to see what it’s all about, who all is participating, what they’re eating and to become inspired.

  1. Thanks for sharing this list and the great idea of Meatless Mondays. Every Monday is meatless at our house, but I sometimes wonder what to tell people when they ask, “But what do you eat? [If you don’t eat meat.}”
