How wonderful is the Meat-free Monday project?
If you are still to hear of this marvellous project I am a huge supporter so you might be hearing a lot about it from this blog in the future!
Meat-free Monday was started in the UK by the McCartney family. Linda McCartney was a vegetarian and food pioneer of her time.
Carrying this vegetarian passion on the McCartney family promote Mondays as being meat-free – giving your health and your pocket a boost as well as helping our planet. They are correct when they say that having one meat-free day each week can make a huge difference.
What I like about this project is that it only promotes one day a week meat-free. I’m not a believer in this busy world of doing things fast – and going cold turkey (if you’ll excuse the pun) and completely vegetarian in one hit can be stressful. Why not start one day a week and see how you go? Stretch to two days after a while and then three, and before you know it – Voila! You’re vegetarian! If you are already a vegetarian – why not make Monday your ‘Go-Vegan’ day?!
I remember Linda McCartney passing away in the late 1990’s. I was so sad. It was sad to say goodbye to such an inspiring vegetarian and passionate supporter of animal rights – but this wonderful project keeps her memory alive and I know she too would think it was marvellous.
