meat free day

This post first appeared on Piping Rock. All content is theirs.

Monday was Meat Free Day. Didn’t participate? Well, even if you’re someone who isn’t super into vegetables and the thought of being a Vegan genuinely scares you…for just one day maybe give it a go with our delicious recipes!

So what’s the deal with Meat Free Day anyway? In an effort to reduce the carbon foot print associated with animal farming as well as water waste, Meat Free Day was created. The goal was simple: Have a day dedicated to raising awareness on the impact the meat industry has on our environment. In fact, it was calculated (in effort to prove a point on the day) that if 10 million people abstained from meat for this one day, 13 tons of water would be saved. Impressive, huh? That being said, if saving water one day a year is within reach for you…here are a few simple, delicious recipes to take part in making a change (even for a day!):
