I've been trying to be more mindful of my meat consumption and have been loving making plant based dinners for #meatlessmonday. Even if you're not vegan/vegetarian, making just one plant based dinner a week has so many benefits for your health and the environment!
Increased consumption of plant-based foods, such as vegetables, beans, and nuts, can improve heart health and reduce the risk of heart disease
- eplacing a half serving of meat every day and replacing it with a plant based protein like beans or tofu can decrease your risk of getting type 2 diabetes
Plant based proteins tend to be lower in calories and have more fiber than their meat based counterparts, helping you better maintain a healthy weight
Eating less processed and red meats can promote kidney health
Skipping one serving of beef every Monday for a year saves the equivalent emissions to driving 348 miles in a car
Livestock production uses 75% of the earth’s agricultural land and creates more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation sector – that's all the cars, trucks, planes, and trains in the world combined!
