A Meatless Tuesday. Or any day. Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday .. it just takes one meatless day a week to get started and change your diet. Already vegan? Then celebrate your meatless lifestyle by sharing recipe links with your online friends or followers. You never know who you will inspire.
Sometimes it just takes one recipe. One meal. One day to realize that a vegan lifestyle is satisfying, delicious - easier than you think - and just feels right in so many ways.
Just one day can encourage someone to change their diet forever - and fill their kitchen with plant-based ingredients - brimming with nutrients and flavor. Encourage yourself or your friends to try a one-day-a-week meatless challenge this year. Start on Meatless Monday - or any day!
