You don’t have to be a vegetarian to have heard the term “Meatless Monday”. But does it work for families and children? Does it have to just be on Mondays? Why is making meatless meals for our families important? Michael Polan said it best when he said:
Making meatless meals is good for the environment, good for our bodies and can connect us with nature and our planet in a way packaged “foods” can not. If your kids are like mine and balk at the thought of a plate full of veggies, not to worry. Meatless meals can be hearty, satisfying and delcious for even the youngest palate.
