"Meatless Mondays"

Go vegetarian for a day. Join the Meatless Monday campaign. Following a plant-based diet may reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
There’s no doubt about it: Most Americans are eating way too much meat. Some research suggests that a diet that focuses on plant-based whole foods (think fruit and nuts over energy bars) can reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and perhaps a whole slew of other diseases.

Why not try one day a week without meat? Keep in mind that shouldn’t mean a plateful of pasta instead. Remember, only one-quarter of your dish should be dedicated to grains — especially if they’re refined.
