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.”
