The Meatless Monday campaign is sweeping the nation. Millions of people are taking a holiday from meat at least one day a week—and for good reasons!
On today’s factory farms, chickens are bred to grow so painfully obese that they often can’t walk more than a few steps without collapsing. They even suffer from heart attacks at only a few weeks of age.
The good news is, that just by swapping out chicken nuggets with a hearty bean and rice burrito or countless other delicious vegetarian meals, you can help spare animals from suffering and slaughter. Companies like Gardein, Boca, Beyond Meat and others are making delicious plant-based “chicken” that’s packed with protein and none of the cruelty.
Studies have found that those who eat less meat tend to have slimmer waistlines. They also have a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and cancer. With the wide variety of meat-free options available in schools, restaurants and grocery stores, eating a healthier, more humane diet has never been easier.
