Meatless Monday Movement

Starting at the beginning of 2013, a movement called Meatless Monday challenged and encouraged people to give up eating meat on Mondays. According to The Monday Campaigns, going meatless once a week can help reduce the risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Why Monday? Most Americans start their workweek on Mondays and studies show that people are more likely to maintain healthier habits and behaviors that begin on Monday. Go to to learn about some favored recipes and read more about the movement.
