January: A Meatless Month and A "Manly" Challenge
To kick off 2009, Rhaya and I are making January a “Meatless Month” on Green-Lemonade. We think it will be a great way to start the year off on the right foot by focusing on a one simple lifestyle change everyone can make that has the potential to make a big impact. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, if every American ate one meat-free meal a week it would be the same as taking 5 million cars of the road!
Now, we’re certainly not suggesting everyone switch to a vegetarian diet, but we hoping our posts this month will inspire you to embrace a vegetarian meal more often. So, throughout the month of January we will be dedicating our posts to the Vegetarian lifestyle by introducing some of our favorite veggie recipes, tips and ideas.
To add to our “Meatless Month” we will be featuring a series of “Man vs. Meat” posts written by my husband, Brian, who is already almost 1 week into a 30 day Vegetarian diet challenge. Brian looks forward to sharing some of the experiences of his vegetarian challenge with you and welcomes any ideas or suggestions you might have for him.
