Today Is the International Meatout

In light of a recent UK study that found vegetarians get fewer cancers (except confusingly colorectal cancer, which is often associated with eating red meat) I will be participating in the International Meatout today, March 20.

Today I will eat no meat since a plant-based diet is better for my personal health and the health of the planet. Meatless meals can be quite satisfying, and these meals are generally higher in fruits and veggies, which many of us should be eating more of anyway. The creators of the International Meatout also sponsor meatless Mondays, a great way to focus on eating vegetarian one day a week, just like the UN council of climate change recommends. Worried about not getting enough protein? Check out these three cheap meat substitutes. Yep, forgoing meat might put some more money in your wallet too. Tell me, will you be eating vegetarian today? My buddy Yum has a bunch vegetarian recipes for you to try.

Huh, who knew that there was a National MeatOut?! Perfect timing since I just posted a great vegetarian appetizer on my blog.

I've been eating mostly vegetarian lateley; mostly because it's a lot cheaper than eating meat. Tonight I'll be having eggs for meat for me!

I'm also going vegetarian every Friday during Lent, but I also thought I'd mention that some Catholics do this year 'round. I love the fact that some people are getting excited over doing a "no meat day" even though there's obviously a huge group of people that have been doing it for centuries. Pretty funny.
