Let's "Go Vegetarian"
for at least one day a week that is, and we can start by choosing to
go meat-free on Mondays! I like to suggest this because choosing to
eat vegetarian one day a week is an easy way to develop the habit of
eating more plant foods on a regular basis. Eating more of these foods
will provide multi- health benefits.
In fact, The American Institute for Cancer Research
has this to say: "The discovery of phytochemical-protective substances
in food is relatively new. Each phytochemical seems to have a unique
role in cancer protection. Each vegetable and fruit has its own profile
of "phytochemicals". I'd like to add that each phyto works
synergistically with others to give the multi-benefits science has
shown in whole plant foods. Plants themselves have survived thousands
of years fighting off pests due to these compounds.
I'll say it again, "Go Vegetarian for Meatless Monday's"
to start! Why Mondays? Meatless Monday is a flourishing,
international movement that benefits human health, animal welfare and
the environment. The movement was started in 2003 by "The Monday Campaigns" and the "Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health"
to promote cutting out meat one day a week for our health and the
health of the planet. I'd like to add we can also save millions of
animals each year from lifelong pain and slaughter.
