Join me in choosing to go meat-free every Monday this January as part of a healthy new year’s resolution! When you eat less meat and dairy, you reduce your risk of developing heart disease, raised blood sugar levels, diabetes and even cancer. This is because a plant-based diet has major health benefits as it contains zero cholesterol, is alkaline free, and lower in saturated fat.
Trust me your body will thank you, even if it’s just one day a week. Every Monday in January I will be sharing some simple meat free recipes as well as tips and tricks to maintaining a plant based lifestyle. #MeatFreeMonday‘s are about to be deliciously epic.
