Meatless Mondays

A recent National Public Radio story has one of the original Mad Men type characters, Sid Lerner, advocating going to Meatless Mondays.

He claims a diet free of meat, red meat especially, will help your wallet, your health, and your carbon footprint. And doing it just once a week is not a huge lifestyle change, just a minor dinnertime adjustment.

I realized that I was doing that since Jeff has been at harvest, without even realizing it. Today's meal? Here it is ~

Breakfast - greek yogurt and blueberries

Lunch - Kashi Mayan Harvest frozen dinner (vegan), 100 cal cheez its, and cake (hey, it was in the break room!)

Dinner - Macaroni and Cheese with a giant side of frozen vegetables in olive oil

Ok, admittedly this is probably a wee bit too many carbs but I can see with just a few tweaks (mostly by adding beans), that it would be totally possible. Anyone else going to try Meatless Mondays?
