Meatless Mondays

Monday, January 24, 2011

According to iVillage, cutting meat from our diet just one day a week can improve health and reduce our carbon footprint. I'm not much of a meat-eater anyway but I really like the idea of having a set day to make something fully vegetarian and iVillage makes it all easy with those 35 scrumpcious looking recipes. On my menu today, this baked eggplant with marinara. Yum! Dears, how often do you eat meat? Want to join in the meatless Mondays? xoxo

Ps: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

My whole family is full of Meat eaters. We have each night a meat, vegy, and some type of carb. My hubby is just not happy without it.
Although in the summer we do a lot of fish (does that count as meat?)

Vinda Sonata said...

such a yummy-looking cuisine
i love vegan meals as well. i think they're not only healthy, they're very nourishing for our bodies
a day without meat is a good idea !

quintessence said...

We are big meat eaters I'm afraid and although this does indeed look delicious don't think I could get it by my husband who doesn't do eggplant!! Perhaps I can find another meatless pasta dish!

I don't eat meat, just fish. And I only have that once or twice a week. That recipe looks YUM! x

Healthy Mamma said...

Mmmmm, my absolute favorite dish!
We eat meat about 1 a week, usually fish or a very lean cut of meat like turkey breast, deer/venison, lamb and rarely chicken.

I generally only eat meat 2 or 3 times a week anyway, so it's not something I make a conscious effort today. Today is not a meatless Monday though. I am eating chicken tortilla soup as I type this. ;-)

Couture Carrie said...

So yummy, darling!
Thanks for the links to all the recipes!

Marisa Midori said...

Mmm meatless Mondays sounds good to me. I read somewhere that "treating meat like a condiment instead of a main course" is a good attitude to have towards eating meat. Can't wait to check out these recipes!

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Looks so yummy!
I try to cut down on red meat as much as possible~
xo*

Lady Grey said...

I completely believe this... and it's so much easier than people think. We eat meat probably about once a week. At home we always cook vegetarian.

Tamara Nicole said...

We rarley eat beef, but a lot of seafood and fish! That's good to know that we cna reduce our carbon footprint this way, yayyyyy mushroom lasagna and eggplant dhishes!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

What a great idea! I am also not a huge meat person, but this might be a good plan to get some more veggies in me :)

TheChambrayCountess said...

I eat meat about 4-5 times a week in various forms, but it really depends on what I am hungry for. Somedays I just want a salad, but some days I crave a big burger! That lasagna looks amazing and I hope you have a delicious dinner!

Happy Monday, dear :)

Sara Szatmary said...

This vegetarian applauds your choice! Delicious!

rebecca said...

Courtney Erin said...

oh that looks delish! i do love meat but i think i could survive without it for a day!!

Mandee said...

I go meatless several days a week...not really on purpose, I just don't always have meat in the house or feel like going to the store. Plus I just love vegetables. I enjoy meatless soups, risotto's and mexican food sans meat (beans are a great replacement!) yum! I'm glad to hear it's much healthier for you! Thanks for the post! Speaking of healthy....check out my unhealthy post on the Chocolate Festival I attended this weekend!

Liesl @ FabulousFashions4SensibleStyle said...

This looks delish! My fiance was a vegetarian for a long time and I don't eat meat often, so I always love fun meatless meals! :)

Liesl :)

Mo Pie, Please said...

I'm a vegetarian so NEVER! :)

MarchMusings said...

Great idea. I can go without meat for a few days a week and not miss it at all. There are many alternatives to eat instead.

monkeyandsquirrel said...

the hubby and i are both vegan, so obviously we have meatless days every day :) i've been looking into cutting even more harmful foods out of my diet lately though. i just purchased the "crazy sexy diet" book to help out with that. it's all about cutting out foods that cause inflammation in the body, such as sugars, gluten and dairy. looking forward to another healthy year ahead!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

I am in for meatless Mondays!
Oh! Diana! I was just a wreck for my first show. I know it was awful! AGHGH

I'd have no problem going without meat for a day and that eggplant lasagna looks great!

Anna Walker said...

Too Late for me today :/

I was just making my grocery list and it includes the ingredients for lasagna, I make mine with zucchini,eggplant and spinach. I'm vegetarian, although I do eat fish from time to time. My family still gives me a hard time about not eating anything with 2 or 4 legs,hehe but there are so many choices now that if I want a hamburger or taco I don't feel deprived instead I turn to the BOCA products!

magdalena viktoria said...

I actually will do the opposite. Meatful(?) Mondays.
I need more meat in my diet.
but I wish you luck!

Styles 'n Cream said...

This looks so yummy. Considering that I am vegetarian and my hubby and kids are even vegans, there is no meat in our house at all.

Kelly Leigh said...

I am meatless everyday!

La Feem said...

I was a veg for years then started eating meat again although I only try to buy organic free range but was just thinking this weekend I need good vegetarian recipes to shift back out of the land of meat! If the majority of animals in general were not so tortured I would feel different but the factory farms are of the devil and must be stopped!!

Alleen said...

I don't eat red meat at all but I do like the idea of meatless mondays. Great idea and I think that'll be a thing we start here. Thanks for the idea, darling! xoxo

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

yummy!!! fabulous meal. i'm all about meatless meals. perhaps i'll join you on mondays!

Deidre said...

I am a full time vegetarian.

Allie said...

Ive been a vegetarian for over a year now...you should definitely try to convert :)

Melisande said...

i do meatless mondays too! i tried being a full vegitarian for nearly a year but it was VERY hard. i'm going to try your recipe soon, looks delicious!

photohogger said...

We've totally cut down on our meat intake, which wasn't even much (only chicken before)! Down to mostly fish and veggies. Love this recipe!! Gonna make it; minus the cheese for me!

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

Ooh, that looks so delicious. It's making me hungry. Off to get some cheese to tide me over. :-)

Googlover/keishua said...

Such a lovely idea. I eat meat every once in a while. I am not a vegetarian but I eat primary a vegetarian diet. It would be cool to make a point to meatless, though.

Brittany H. said...

Oh boy, this looks absolutely delicious. I love eating, and this is getting book marked in my recipe catalogue!!

Gosh, I barely ever eat meat, I'll join you in Meatless Monday!

Glucosamine said...

I take meat on for couple of days in a weak and for the rest of the week mostly vegetables. As excess eating of meat causes the health problem and increases carbon footprints. so please cut down to the consumption of meat for your health and saving earth . just a bit i say don't give-up totally for some nonsense PETA - the publicty seeking idiots

va said...

i try to have vegetarian each week and more then once . i have daals with rotis . salads , veggie soups and stews and it is easier to digest then neat . but i still love eating meat .

Keeping away from the meat is best way of preventing a kidney disease.
