The Benefits of Meatless Meals

Physicians and other health care providers are rapidly realizing the importance of reducing the amount of meat we consume in our every day diets.

“Meatless Mondays” is the term that’s been coined by the medical community to encourage everyone to cut out meat servings at least one day a week in order to boost maximum health and help alleviate worsening environmental issues.

A recent report from the renowned Mayo Clinic states that serving meatless meals at least once a week offers a multitude of health benefits.

Plant-based meals that feature beans, grains and vegetables - rather than meat - provide your body with the nutrition it needs, minus the risk of developing heart disease and other chronic conditions that occur when you consume too much meat in your diet.

Meatless Mondays isn’t really a new idea. During World War I the Food and Drug Administration urged Americans to support the war effort by conserving food and especially reducing meat consumption.

The term, “Meatless Monday,” was established during that era and an advertising campaign was launched that touted the benefits of reducing meat intake - including saving money and improving health.

That successful marketing campaign was re-introduced during World War II during a time that meat and other goods such as sugar and gasoline were being rationed.

In 2003, the Meatless Mondays campaign was again put into effect as a health and wellness awareness program.

As Americans became more aware of environmental issues associated with eating meat, Meatless Mondays got a boost once more when the Center for a Livable Future (a division of the medical giant, Johns Hopkins), endorsed a movement that provided information on the effects that consuming meat has on the climate.

In recent years, Meatless Mondays has received an avalanche of high-profile supporters, including former Beatle, Paul McCartney McCartney launched a ‘go meatless’ campaign with his two daughters by beginning an official website encouraging people to eat less meat.

The forward-thinking city of San Francisco, California was the first to officially designate Mondays as ‘Vegetarian Day.’

Now, Meatless Mondays have caught on world-wide as a way to improve health, save money and make a positive impact on the environment.
