A little help from our friends

“We know that this is THE most important thing we can do to save our earth, and it’s also the best thing we can do for our health. Plus it’s so yummy! Join me on this adventure of plant-based living and please be meat-free Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and if you can only do Monday we’ll be OK with that too. The more the merrier, thank you!”

— Alicia Silverstone

“Try it, you might like it … and the planet definitely will appreciate it.”

— Woody Harrelson

“I grew up in the ‘meat and two veg’ era but there’s so much more choice now in terms of plant-based food – it’s far more exciting on the plate! I’m consciously reducing how much meat I eat, and that’s no bad thing for the planet and all of us living on it.”

— Ainsley Harriott

“Meat Free Monday is a simple idea which makes so much sense! By not eating meat at least one day a week we help the environment, save animals and improve our health. Try it, get your friends and family to try it and why not encourage your school to try it too?”

— Fearne Cotton

“Meat Free Mondays is a great idea though I live meat free every day. Being vegetarian is good for your body, good for the planet and a peace and loving thing to do.”

— Ringo Starr

“Thank you for inspiring the way I live my life now. Even if you’re not veggie, vegan or plant-based, reducing our meat and dairy consumption, even for just one day a week, has a positive impact on our planet, the animals we share it with and our own personal health.”

— Gabrielle Aplin

“It’s a great initiative and an opportunity for us to really reduce meat consumption that not only saves our lives but saves our planet. Let’s continue to move towards a Meat Free Monday!”

— Eric Adams

🥦 Nutritious and cruciferous, broccoli is a staple in many kitchens! These tiny tasty trees pack a punch, with vitamins A, C and K being just some of the benefits. Broccoli is a great source of fibre, and even contains 2.5g of protein per 100g! As if you needed any more convincing to include more broccoli in your meals, it`s super versatile and delicious and can be roasted, fried, steamed, boiled, grilled or even served raw in a salad bowl. 🥦
