Try Meatless Mondays during Vegetarian Month
This October, encourage your family and friends to try “Meatless Mondays.” Treat your taste buds to well-balanced meals that feature fresh leafy greens, colorful vegetables, plant-based meat or other protein-packed foods. It’s a great time to have fun with food and try something new! Search online, browse cookbooks, swap recipes with friends or ask your dietitian for ideas.
Studies suggest that switching at least some of your weekly meals to vegetarian may be beneficial to your health by assisting in weight maintenance or loss, reducing the risk of colorectal cancer, and preventing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. However, be sure to consult with your dietitian or physician before making any changes to your diet or meal plan to know what is right for you.
