Meatless


I don’t think I’ve mentioned before that I share an office with 5 other dietitians (Amy, Andrea, Marci, Dara, and Erin).  I’d argue that they’re the best officemates ever, but this, of course, is a (slightly) biased opinion.  As you can imagine, there is a lot of talk about food.  Erin first introduced me to the idea of Meatless Mondays quite a while ago, and I thought it was time to share with you too! 

Meatless Mondays actually originated back in the first World War.  Meatless Mondays aren’t about being vegetarian; they’re about sustainable eating- reducing greenhouse gases and environmental impact.  Going meatless for one day a week can also contribute to reducing risk of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.  Keep in mind that current Canadian recommendations advise that we consume <500g of red meat per week. 

Here are some photos from Meatless Mondays past…

Vegetarian Pizza
(any meatless toppings will do!) 

Soy Taco 


Mediterranean Quinoa 

Good for us and the environment… sounds like a win-win to me.
