Meatless Monday began in 2003 in response to the release of the Healthy People 2010 report, which included goals to reduce dietary saturated fat by 15%. “Since saturated fat primarily comes from meat and animal products and since one day a week is just under 15% of the week, Meatless Monday was a practical method for helping people to meet those goals.

I’ve gone meatless on Monday for the past few months and have been asked to share what I eat on those days.
Here are my Meatless Meals for Monday, September 1st:
Yes it was Labor Day and I remained true to my meatless commitment. My food choices were different, delicious and I didn’t miss the traditional beef and pig BBQ fest one bit.
Breakfast: The morning was so busy, I had eaten half before I remembered to take a picture. Breakfast was light but filling – a boiled egg, toast and and pluot.
Snack 1: popcorn
