Meatless Mondays

The Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) is promoting Meatless Mondays for our diets.  According to EWG’s Meat Eater’s Guide to Climate Change + Health, if everyone in the U.S. skipped eating meat and cheese just one day a week for a year, it would be like pulling 7.6 million cars off the road. At the same time, people — especially kids — would be less likely to develop health problems such as obesity and heart disease.  Plus it gets us to eat more fruits and vegetables.

Let’s teach our kids how to eat less meat, because more and more of them could face serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and even some types of cancer as they get older.
