Monday offers an opportunity to “reset” and get back on track after any lapses over the weekend. Meatless Monday can make a big difference for your health and the health of our planet. There are enormous environmental costs associated with rearing and processing meat for consumption. Animal products generally have a larger water footprint than crop products, so make the switch just one day a week and go meat-free.
Not only will this reduce your carbon footprint and water usage, but it also has plenty of health benefits. Eating a plant-based diet has been proven to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases, so make Monday the day you go meatless and enjoy a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
