Happy Earth Day!
What could be better than the whole world working together to protect and honor our planet? I love that we have a worldwide holiday dedicated to a clean and healthy environment.

With that being said, we all know that excessive meat consumption is terrible for the environment (not to mention the human body) so I think a great place to start is Meatless Monday.
Environmental Defense estimates that, “If every American had one meat-free day per week (it) would be the same as taking 8 million cars off American roads.” (You can read the rest of the article here.)
Lucky for us, veggies are soooooo delicious!
There are tons of awesome websites with great veggie recipes. Here’s a few to get you started:
