Good For You, Good For Me, And Good For Our Planet… Meatless Monday! Hero

Good For You, Good For Me, And Good For Our Planet… Meatless Monday!

Contact Us

Did you know for every burger skipped:

  • You can save enough water to wash a car 15 times,
  • Save enough energy to charge your cell phone for 4 ½ years,
  • Save enough water to shower with for the next 2.5 months, or
  • Save enough water to drink for the next 3 years?

Meatless Monday is a movement that has taken us by storm since 2003.  It started when a gentleman (Sid Lerner) went to his Doctor’s appointment and learned his cholesterol levels and blood pressure had skyrocketed.  After a lot of research, Sid realized that people are eating on average 15 percent more meat than they should.  He decided if he reduced his own meat consumption by at least one day a week, his health conditions would improve with the change in this dietary habit.  Sid was proven right.

There are high levels of saturated fat found in meat which have been connected to illnesses such as stroke, heart disease, and some cancers.  Eating too much meat has also been linked to type 2 diabetes and a higher mortality rate than those who consume less meat.  When you go meatless for at least one day a week, you will make more room for vegetables, whole grains, and beans.  These foods contain not only protein but essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

By participating in Meatless Monday, it will not only benefit your own health and body but also our Earth and environment.  When you go meatless once a week you are greatly reducing the number of resources such as land, fossil fuels, and water used to produce your food.

Hearth Management joined the Meatless Monday Movement in 2014 along with thousands of restaurants, school lunch programs, hospitals, and corporate dining rooms spanning across 30 countries.  We offer meatless menu options in our dining rooms for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every Monday.

For more articles, recipes, e-cookbooks, or information you can click here; however, let me give you more food for thought:

If the world reduced meat consumption by 15% by participating in Meatless Monday, it would have the same impact on greenhouse gas emissions as taking 240 million cars off the road each year.
