Did you know that Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney started the Meat-Free Monday campaign in 2009? They should be so proud that eight years later, millions of people who tried going meatless for short periods of time have taken the next step to Vegan or Vegetarian lifestyles. While that level of commitment is amazing for us personally and the planet as a whole, there’s a larger group of people hovering somewhere between vegetarian and carnivore. According to Whole Foods Grocery, the hottest trend in 2017 is Flexitarian.
It makes sense that there is a huge community of people who want to eat more plants every week but aren’t willing to totally give up beef or chicken altogether. Between the hot 2016 trend of clean eating and the countless new plant-based food choices popping up from groceries to restaurants and schools, it’s getting easier and more compelling.
Meatless Mondays is the perfect chance to:
1) increase your plant-based food percentage
2) learn how to make almost any meal high protein
3) find and try new recipes
4) learn how to order meatless while at restaurants or school
