Meatless Monday

Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative by The National Meatless Monday Campaign partnered with the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health Center for a Livable Future
They provide information and recipes needed to start each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives. The goal is to help people reduce meat consumption by 15% in order to improve personal health and the health of the planet.  Meatless Monday is just that- NO meat all day on Mondays, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  I am inspired by the Meatless Monday idea to share recipes and meal ideas for anyone who wants to try being vegetarian, just for a day!  

For breakfast I will have my usual:
3/4 cup slow-cook oatmeal
1/4 cup blueberries (I use frozen, helps cool it down, too!)
a handful chopped walnuts 

Health Tip:
You can cut your chance of cancer by 40%, heart disease by 50% and Type 2 diabetes by 60% by switching to a whole foods, vegetarian diet!

Check back later for lunch!


  1. Do Meatless Mondays include eggs and dairy?


  2. The Meatless Monday campaign does not exclude eggs and dairy. But you can make your Meatless Monday exclude dairy!
