According to MeatlessMonday.com "The city of San Francisco, Baltimore City Public Schools and Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer have all decided to make Mondays meatless. In the U.S., over 30 college campuses have also embraced the campaign. On top of that, Meatless Monday programs have popped up in Britain, Brazil, Holland, Canada, Finland, Taiwan and Australia. Further, major food personalities, celebrities and leaders such as Michael Pollan, Al Gore, Sir Paul McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mario Batali are backing the movement."It's easy to joint the movement.

I've gone meatless on Monday for the past few months and have been asked to share what I eat on those days.
Here are my Meatless Meals for today, Monday, September 15th:
Breakfast: I luv me some Shakeology. This chocolate with frozen banana and unsweetened almond milk hit the spot.
AM Snack: Black seedless grapes and Fruit and nut mix. Picked this one up at Sams Club. I can't remember the brand - it is mostly fruit and sunflower seeds but tasty.
Post workout Snack: The plan was to pick up a bean and rice lunch after my workout, but I was pressed and had to hustle for school pickup. The applesauce pouch was refreshing.
Lunch??? Can't really call it that. Grabbed some peanuts, a few corn chips and a plum to tide me over until dinner.
Dinner: Roasted root vegetables. Roasted tomatoes and cucumber over kale and spinach with grated Asiago and a lemon Caesar dressing. Braised white beans.
I love white beans and kale. In tonight's dinner, the white beans were leftovers from Zoes Kitchen (one of my new favorite quick and healthy restaurants), and the kale came from a salad mix. I just dressed it. Easy peasy.
When I have more time, I will definitely try this Italian White Beans with Kale over Polenta recipe from Circle B Kitchen.
