There’s an easy way to make weekly strides toward better health while still enjoying delicious dishes. Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. “Since its start in 2003, the campaign has spread to hundreds of schools, restaurants, workplaces and universities in more than a dozen countries,” shares Chris Elam, program director for Meatless Monday.

According to the Meatless Monday website, “Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.”

While FN Dish will continue to offer Recipe of the Day, which may or may not include meat on Mondays, we’ll also include a quick and simple Meatless Monday menu so you can become part of the movement, too.

Main Dish: Giada’s Spaghetti With Olives and Bread Crumbs
Side Dish: Rachael’s Cucumber and Tomato Salad

    Meatless can be delish! I love tomatoes and cucumbers, especially in the summer when I can pick them fresh. Also good is ratatouille, fresh from the garden. I know most scoff at the idea but tofu is great for meatless; it takes on any flavor you want. If you like fish but don't want fish taste, go for shark; it absorbs other flavors. Great for cioppino!!!

    Great ideas for meatless meals. So many searches for meatless main dishes are all about tofu. Those recipes are fine, but I prefer recipes that are based on lots of vegetables.

    Great post. I found it very insightful.

  9. With havin very much content ever run inside any concerns of plagorism or even copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or perhaps outsourced but it really seems a large amount of it is popping the idea up in your web not having my endorsement. Do you already know any approaches to help halt content via being cheated? I’d really be thankful.
