Your mentors (Pollan, Nestle, Lappe) have urged you to eat more plants and less meat, for the health of ourselves and the health of our planet. You have, perhaps, nodded in agreement, then forked in another mouthful of meat.
How to put your money where you mouth is?
Many find that making a declaration or taking a pledge can help firm up their commitment and hold them accountable. This Monday, I introduce to you the Meatless Monday pledge. The Meatless Monday campaign is an initiative created in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Their goal is to help reduce meat consumption 15% in order to improve personal health and the health of our planet.
The website dishes up the facts—on personal and environmental health benefits—as well as tips, incentives, recipes etc. and summer is a great time to begin—when farm fresh produce is abundant and delicious.
Take the pledge today; make this Monday your first meatless Monday.
