For many people who aren’t vegetarian or vegan, the idea of having a day without meat can seem daunting. However, it doesn’t have to be the end of flavorful dishes just because you don’t have your meat.
Each monday, for meatless mondays, I plan to share resources and tips, along with plant based news from around the globe about the latest things going on in the vegan community. It will give a chance for some non-vegans to dip their feet into the world of vegan food and the environment as well.
During the fall and winter time of year, having warm and comforting soups that you can make in advance are great options. You can make them easily in one pot, do it on a Sunday before the week, and then have your Meatless Monday meal for dinner the next day.
Soups bring people together, whether it is at a campfire or by the fireplace at home on a cold winter day. If you make a few different soups on a Sunday you can also freeze them in individual servings with ziploc, and then have them stored for a few weeks for different weeknight meatless dinners. It will save you the hassle for a meal (for quite a few weeks). If you want, you can even use the soups during other days of the week and have meats on the side with it.

Plant based news for the community
There are many resources online with magazines, news sites and blogs that feature trends in the vegan community and the latest news going on in different countries. Now, I get to share them with you and learn new things myself about what is going on in terms of ethical news, environmental impacts and the choice of being vegan that is beginning to influence many other people. Even the choice of ‘going vegan’ a few times a week can have a long term impact on you healthwise, as well as an impact on the world around us.
This week I found an interesting topic in the plant based news site about a proposed smoked meat tax since they pose health risks. It sounds like an interesting idea to charge more to essentially have people avoid getting smoked meats with nitrates that are carcinogenic. The article also looked at the idea of questioning how healthy are the smoked plant based products being made… you can click the button/link below to find out their ideas and views on the matter.
