Paul McCartney, former Beatle, current British knight, is going meat-free one day a week and encouraging others to do the same. Earlier this week he launched a Meat Free Monday campaign with a little help from his friends.
The Meat Free Monday website has ideas on how to help the planet and vegetarian recipes for use on Monday nights. The concept of a meat-free or meatless Monday is certainly nothing new. The Meatless Monday website has been around for a while, many food bloggers post recipes for meatless Mondays, and the city of Ghent, Belgium, encouraged its residents to go meatless once a week earlier this year.
