Less Meat in Your Diet Means More Money in Your Pocket
Now you know that reducing meat consumption can help you lose weight and reduce the risk of chronic health problems and diseases. But, Meatless Mondays can save you money as well.
The astronomical cost of raising the meat we eat is passed on to you, the consumer, in supermarkets and restaurants.
Beans, eggs, fruits, vegetables and grains are much less expensive and can save you some serious dollars by pulling meat off the list.
You’ll even spend less in restaurants when you choose from the ‘heart healthy” or vegetarian menus.
Many restaurants all across the country are joining the Meatless Mondays bandwagon and offering more meatless entrees.
One restaurant even provides a multi-course meatless tasting menu every Monday and the owner claims that it’s perked up his (usually) slow Monday clientele.
It’s true that some organic and gourmet fruits, vegetables and nuts are decidedly more expensive than a good deal on a $1 cheeseburger at your favorite fast food restaurant, but for vegetarian staples such as beans, lentils, eggs, dairy, rice and corn, there’s no doubt that you’ll save money on your grocery bill.
Some supermarkets offer staples such as beans and nuts in bulk, saving you money and letting you purchase only what you need – so there’s less waste.
Another option for Meatless Mondays is ‘meatless meat.’
Veggie burgers, chicken substitutes and other products are readily available in almost every supermarket and most health food stores.
They’re made from soy and seasoned so that many would swear they’re eating real meat.
These veggie substitutes are cholesterol-free and there’s no fat – so, there’s no waste.
The Eastern world has known about the benefits of tofu (soy) for centuries and countries such as China and Japan use it in many exotic dishes and stir fries. It tastes good and is good for you.
Meat on your grocery list means more money at the supermarket. Going meatless at least once a week not only saves money – but more than that – it will decrease cholesterol and saturated fat and make you healthier.
That’s what Meatless Mondays are all about. How did you like this post?
