From my very first Meatless Monday post a year ago
According to meatlessmonday.com
"Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.
Read about these benefits below. But keep in mind that just going meatless is not enough. That’s why we give you the information you need to add healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives to your diet each week. Further, if you do eat meat on other days, we strongly recommend grass-fed, hormone-free, locally-raised options whenever possible."
First we have Caprese Salad
I used fresh, locally made Mozzarrella with homegrown Basil and homegrown Tomatoes straight from the garden. I soaked garlic in olive oil overnight and then drizzled over my creation. YUM!

Next we have a baby Kale salad!
Next time I'll be adding legumes and SPROUTS in my salad. I just started another batch of organic Mung Beans!
