Meatless Monday Logo



Why Meatless? Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.


Why Monday? For most Americans the week begins on Monday. On Monday we move from the freedom of the weekend back to the structure of work or school. We set our intentions for the next six days. We plan ahead and evaluate progress.


Nutritional Guidelines. It’s easy to go meatless on Monday. In place of chicken, beef, pork or fish, just look for protein from beans, legumes, eggs, nuts and seeds instead.Intreseted in learning more about nutrition?  Contact our Nutrition & Wellness Coordinator Cory Hancock, RD CLC at or 585-245-5569.
