Meatless Monday is a continuing and growing campaign initiated by Sid Learner in 2003. Historically, this concept was implemented during World Wars I & II to encourage families to reduce their consumption of meat in order to assist the men & some women at the time with war effort. Since Monday is the beginning of the work week and often is the opportunity to start fresh and new, a budget friendly and cost effective vegetarian or vegan recipe will be posted utilizing an ingredient(s) from the Sunday Game Plan. In addition, the star ingredient(s) will be highlighted with a brief history along with its health benefits.
