Here at the Green Phone Booth, we've been encouraging you to make your Mondays meatless. Ready to take it one step further?
This past week I came across a video from the TED conference by Graham Hill, who ponders: If we know that eating too much meat is unhealthy, both for us and the planet, then why are more of us not vegetarians? He says, "What I was being pitched was a binary solution. It was either, you're a meat-eater or you're a vegetarian. And I guess I wasn't quite ready."
But maybe it doesn't have to be an all or nothing proposition. Hill proposes a third solution: weekday vegetarianism (vegetarian Monday through Friday, meat-eater on the weekends). Afterall, as he points out, "If all of us ate half as much meat, it would be like half of us were vegetarians."
If you want to watch the whole video, it's only four minutes long (and then has a silly four-minute-long commercial at the end.)
What do you think? Are you ready for weekday veg?
Don't forget to share your Meatless Monday recipe with us using Mr. Linky below. List your name and the name of the dish, and link directly to the post on your blog.
