Enjoy a Meatless Day

 

Start this week with a meatless Monday. Cooking meatless gives you a new fun challenge.

Meatless uses less carbon
In solidarity for a meatless day.

I love meatless Monday. It forces me to think about something different, and Monday is a good day to try a new vegetarian dish.  Today I am making a delicious split pea vegan soup. See the recipe here. It would be a miracle if you had the ingredients, but if you have some carrots, celery and beans or lentils you can create something rich using this recipe. We are all into substitutions right now and you can do this! Be creative and have fun, and give yourself something new to think about.

Beans and lentils cause 34 times LESS climate pollution than beef, and they are healthier for you! Read at NRDC.

It has been amazing how popular beans have been in this crisis. I hope you are enjoying and making healthy food choices. During this coronavirus crisis we need to be keeping our immune systems strong. Make a big deal out of what you are making for dinner, and enjoy a meatless day!
