Meatless Mondays
A Healthy Choice

According to Wikipedia, “Meatless Mondays is an international campaign that encourages people to not eat meat on Mondays to improve their health and the health of the planet.” And…

“Unhealthy habits that prevailed over the weekend can be forgotten and replaced by positive choices. A weekly reminder to restart healthy habits also encourages success.”

I like that very much, because -- success is in the name of my website. And it’s your health, in fact all seniors’ health, that is the main concern here.

Remember - 

  • How I talk about “leaning into” a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle on this site? 
  • How hugely beneficial even small changes in your diet can be? 
  • How a step-by-step approach can be right for you?

In my article “Anti-Aging Diet” I write more about how reducing the consumption of meats of all kinds in favor of fresh, unprocessed plant-based foods can make a tremendous difference.

The choice between getting old and sick in a hurry and extending your life should be an easy one.

But old habits and customs die hard. However, Mondays without meat are doable - very doable. 

You may not be ready for a full vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, but…

By cutting out all kinds of meat once a week, you reduce your meat consumption by 15% - Monday is but one day of seven per week - in order to improve your senior health and the health of our planet Earth.

A very health-promoting step indeed!

If we all abstained from eating meat on Mondays for one year, the result would be like taking eight million cars off America’s roads. Think about it.

We would reduce our carbon footprint and help reduce climate change.

Just listen to this - Livestock emits more greenhouse gases than all the world’s cars and trucks, airplanes and ships combined! By the way, this is one of the main reasons why the Meatless Mondays campaign was created.

Now back to your personal health reasons for “leaning into” a whole foods, plant-based diet…

Most meats are loaded with growth hormones, antibiotics - wreaking havoc on your immune system - stimulants and additives, and GMOs that can cause heart disease, cancers, obesity, and many other illnesses.

Again, doing the right thing for your health can be challenging. It’s not always easy. 

Health Coaching may be of immense help. It has been proven to be highly effective in reaching desired results. 

Meanwhile, begin your weeks right.

Meatless Mondays is an excellent start…
