Switching to a more plant-based diet can be good for you and the environment — and in 2019, even the fast-food industry began taking notice, with meatless burgers and other vegan options popping up on menus nationwide.
But eating more plant-based foods doesn't have to mean giving up meat completely. If you've been looking for an ease in, Meatless Monday is a good place to start. By forgoing animal proteins just one day each week, you give yourself the opportunity to try out new foods and recipes that you might otherwise overlook. "Once you see how easy it is, you'll be inspired to add even more meatless meals throughout the week," Sharon Palmer, MSFS, RDN, The Plant-Powered Dietitian, told POPSUGAR.
