Pum recommends…Meatless Monday

Meatless Monday isn’t a new concept to me.  I’ve previously come across it and dismissed it on many a blog.  I just love meat so much!

I mean, I completely understand why some people choose not to eat meat and respect their reasons, but that’s just not for me at this point in time.

However… that being said the more I’ve read about Meatless Monday recently, the more I’m totally on board with it!

Forgoing meat for at least one day a week isn’t actually about trying to turn people vegetarian.  Going meatless could reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. And going meatless once a week can also help reduce carbon footprint and save the world’s resources like fossil fuels and fresh water.

When you put it like that it’s quite hard to argue with!

So tonight I’m embracing Meatless Monday and having scrambled eggs, baked beans on rye bread.  Simple but pretty good!

I do genuinely tend to have a fairly good mix of vegetarian meals and those with meat, so here’s a few meal ideas that I’ve enjoyed over the past week to help you through Meatless Monday

 

Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad with Pesto from the gorgeous Kirsty.
