Meatless Monday is a movement that started in 2003 to encourage people to eat a little less meat for their health and the environment. The campaign was started by Sid Lerne in association with the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future. I love the concept because it’s a great reminder that you can take small steps that can greatly impact your health and the planet’s health. I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t think you have to be a vegetarian to add meatless meals into your dinner rotation. So whether you’re a vegetarian or a “flexitarian”, I hope you enjoy these recipes!
