The “Meatless Monday” trend is growing in popularity across the globe. I know many people who participate in this movement for different reasons, to keep their meals budget-friendly, to improve their health by adding more veggies to their diets, to slim down or even because they have concerns the way animals are raised.
It’s a fact that eating like a vegetarian from time to time can save you time in the kitchen and there are enormous health benefits to cutting down on meat such as lowered risk of diabetes, cancer or obesity.
