MEAT IS NECESARY I THINK ONCE A WEEK, BUT SALADS EVERYDAY AND WALK AT LEAST 45 MINUTES A DAY AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY, I AM 70, I HAVEN`T GONE TO A DOCTOR DURING 35 YEARS.

I must confess I'm a big fan of Pollan. We've gone away from most processed foods overall and cook our own. While we don't do a specific meatless day, we are actually planning a lentil and rice-based dinner Wednesday this week. We eat more legumes, beans and whole grains than most Americans, I believe. The protein/fiber combo is unbeatable but I still love good bacon!

I'm not a vegetarian, but I only eat meat once a day. If I have bacon for breakfast, that's it - I'm done til tomorrow. It's a three-fer: good for your wallet, your heart and our planet.

I could certainly go a day without meat. I'm not a vegan now but I used to be..I don't know if people will necessarily eat better foods though. I meatless day can include endless pizza and pasta..lol I like the idea though.
thanks for posting

I have several issues with veganism, and I do eat meat almost every day. But that being said, you really can have some decent meat-free meals. Not great, but decent.

Some of the best meals I've ever had have been vegetarian. I'm lucky enough to have a gourmet veggie chef as one of my best friends, and also a gourmet veggie restaurant within walking distance. It's so good we didn't even notice it was vegetarian the first 2 or 3 times we were there!
Vegetarian cooking has come a long way since the 1970s!

I have did this before, then I went right back into my old habits

Hi Natalie,
As an intern with Meatless Monday, I want to thank you for discussing our campaign on your website. The movement is really gaining traction! There is also a Youtube video with the history and science behind the campaign: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpnKeYmR1NM
Thank you!

I am a vegan and it can be very expensive OR inexpensive depending on what you decide to eat. If you follow the philosophy of "beans, greens and grains" veg eating is very affordable....especially if you buy your beans and grains in bulk. You just have to be careful not to buy a lot of the faux meats.....they can be very expensive. But if you want to become vegetarian and you love things that are more meaty, you can still make something called "seitan" for not a lot of money. It just takes a little work.

I used to do much less meat - meat once a day - but then I cut down carbs and started to need the protein so my salads became Chef and grilled chicken. I'm always on the verge of toying with vegetarianism, but there is something about a hamburger that keeps me a meat-eating girl. Although, I must admit they are not the same without a bun. There is always something.
