Meatless Monday

romaineMeatless Monday is a great low impact campaign to care for the environment and to kick off a plant based nutrition.   Since it was launched 10 years ago in the US,  a poll conducted said 39 percent said they eat less meat than they did three years ago.

Why Monday? “Because several studies have demonstrated that people are more likely to try to quit smoking, begin a diet or exercise regimen, schedule doctors’ appointments or adopt other healthy behaviors on Monday than any other day.”

Monday being a market day at TheVillageGreenShop, we thought of creative ways to celebrate a plant powered day!

  • Juicing – 80% veggies + 20% fruits (throw in some spice like ginger, basil, cilantro or lemon grass perhaps)
  • We would like to reduce food waste so we are also issuing green deal coupons for any abundant leafy green and veg produce for the week to ensure that they make it to  table.  If you are a restaurant, community of households or simply cooking a big pot for a special occasion check this out!
  • Legumes and tofu are great source of protein and perfect for any type of veg.

Cheers.
