Happy Monday! Happy first Monday of April! Happy Meatless Monday!! Let’s go one step further and make Mondays Vegan Monday, or Plant Based Eating Monday, or Animal Freedom Monday. What do you think?
If you’re not a vegan, think of this day as a health day. A day to reduce the amount of acidic foods that you regularly eat, and to get a glimpse of how good a plant based diet can make you feel. With any luck, you’re going to want to extend Vegan Monday to Tuesday, then Wednesday, and so on.
If you’re a vegan, share this with your non-vegan friends. Let’s show them that vegan food does not equate to a bowl of raw carrots and chia seeds. You know how delicious and healthy vegan food is, so why not convince others to give it a go? Think of Mondays as a call to action day!
Let’s spread the word on the benefits of a plant based diet. Study after study shows that eating a healthy, plant based diet reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. It’s also good for the environment, and of course, animals. Take a look at this.
You know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It sets the tone for what you eat for the rest of the day, and, eating a healthy breakfast might even inspire you to take the stairs instead of the elevator, park a little further away from the door and walk, or go for a run. Begin your Monday with one of these colorful and delicious breakfasts and you’ll be off to a great start!
Walk away from the donuts in the break room, the candy in the vending machine, and the sugar loaded energy bars that you tell yourself are healthy, and pack one of these snacks instead. You'll feel so much better for it, I promise!
Save some money, and calories, and brown bag it today. Lunch time will never be fresher or tastier!
