Meatless Monday

The Meatless Mondays is an initiative to encourage people to eat less meat to improve their health and protect the environment. One day a week, we cut out meat. Why do we do this? One day is about 15% of a week: the exact percentage of saturated fat (found in animal products) that should be reduced in our diet, according to the Director of the U.S. Public Health Service.

Meat-free eating is easy with simple, delicious recipes. Visit healthfirst.ca for more information about Meatless Mondays and discover other great recipes!
