Veggie Mama's Meatless Mondays





Are you doing Meatless Mondays? Wanting to? Wanting to know more about it?

It's pretty simple - just one day a week, cut out meat. Some people simply make one meatless dinner a week, and that's fine too. I'll never shout from the rooftops and force you to convert, but I'm a huge fan of just cutting back, or making a different meal every now and then.

Sometimes you just make dinner and it's accidentally veggie. You haven't set out for it to be that way, but it just doesn't have any meat in it. And I bet it's delicious.

I ain't preaching, so if you want more information, the Australian site is here, and the worldwide site here.
I do recommend you read them, there's a lot of cool stuff and great explanations of the reasons behind it.

I've decided to start a linky - mostly for inspiration, but it's cool also to have somewhere to be accountable, if that helps. So link up if you've made a meatless dinner - whether for Meatless Monday, or just because, or even accidentally! It's a bit of fun, with excellent consequences :)

♥ The linky will be up at 9am every Monday morning, and will stay up until the following Sunday.

♥ Grab the Meatless Monday button and put it in your post, and even on your sidebar if you're feeling generous.

Visit at least one other blogger and leave some love. This is so much more cool if we're in it together!


 Happy eating, folks! Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

  2. Love the idea.  We try to have one to two meatless  meals a week...  I would love to be a vegetarian but the husband and the kids don't like the idea and I am too lazy to cook two meals a night :-)

  3. Haha you would not believe how much I've heard that! I'm so pleased Veggie Dad went veggie... I don't know what I would do. Maybe some of the recipes we find might help!

  4. haha! Sometimes we're time-poor. Two meals is an excellent start. I used to make meat dishes and add a veggie substitute for me. I totally don't any more, but I didn't force the issue straight up.

  5. I've linked my post although our veggie meal this week is a little uninspired - veggie stir fry.
    I always try to include at least 1 veggie meal in our plan each week.

  6. Veggie stir fry is such a good Meatless Monday meal... I don't know anyone that doesn't like it!

  7. We don't do this exactly, but certainly have a couple of nights a week that are meat free.

    In winter I tend to do Sunday soup night, which is usually veggie.

  11. Does it count eggs?  If so, we eat 'veggie' at least 4 nights a week.  I am not a big fan of meat.
