Meatless Monday is a global movement with a mission to encourage people to reduce meat in their diet for their and their planet’s health. It is a simple message – Skip meat at least once a week. Why Monday? Because researchers found out that on Mondays people are most likely to make positive changes. Finally, the goal is to let people see the positive change in their bodies and how healthier they feel after Meatless Monday, so they extend the practice to other days.
Since time immemorial, meat consumption has always been tagged with some negative opinion. It’s true to say that meat, despite being that chewy, juicy, full-of-flavour food that satisfies most appetite urges, it remains one of the most dangerous foods. Flexitarians and vegans are continually searching for foods that resemble meat but are not meat and have the same nutritional benefits. In other words, meat analogue is a meat substitute that is made solely from vegetarian ingredients. How impressive is that!
