“The impact of one designated meat free day a week could make a meaningful contribution to the environment, fight global hunger and improve global health. It’s a simple and delicious choice to make.”
Chef and author Maria Elia has worked as head chef of restaurants Delfina, The Whitechapel Dining Room and Joe’s in Knightsbridge. She is author of two cookbooks – Full of Flavour, and The Modern Vegetarian. Watch Maria’s Meat Free Monday secondary school cooking workshop.
I've been getting my family to go meatless at least 3 times a week. It's healthier for everyone and better for the planet.
Meat Free Monday has given me the opportunity to educate myself on foods that I would not have usually have eaten before.
It keeps me creative in the kitchen, and I am helping reduce my impact.
Previously dinner planning always started with ‘what meat’, and the rest of the meal was built around it. Meat Free Monday helps change that mindset.
Meat Free Monday is a great initiative to encourage people to have a healthier diet, save animals and the planet for at least once a week.
