Meatless Fridays, Meatless Mondays

Skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for our nation’s health, and fantastic for the planet. It takes approximately 1,850 gallons of water to produce a single pound of beef, as opposed to just 39 gallons of water to produce a pound of vegetables. Thirty countries and counting have signed on to Meatless Mondays worldwide movement that encourages people to adopt this habit. The website also has many delicious, meatless recipes from mushroom frittata, quinoa chilli fries, to butternut squash and spinach alfredo.
