This summer I read an article in The Radish about Meatless Mondays. Meatless Mondays encourages people to make a concious effort to reduce the amout of meat eaten in a week. As suggested by the title, the idea is to select a day of the week and not eat any meat on that day. It was a really interesting article outlining the benefits of reducing the amout of meat consumed, both for your health, and for the environment. Here’s the article.
When examining our own weekly intake of meat, Mike and I realized we already have 1 day a week when we don’t consume meat. So, we decided to step it up and try to have two completely meatless days. Usually there is one day a week that we just eat some kind of pasta, so that makes it pretty easy to avoid meat. However, we don’t want to be eating pasta for all of our meatless meals.
This is where you come in! We’re looking for some delicious meatless meals! But here’s the catch: it takes a pretty substantial meal to fill up Mike’s tummy! A salad isn’t going to cut it in this house! So, we’re looking for some delicious meatless meals that are filling.
What is your favorite meatless meal?
