What does Meatless Monday Mean?
Meatless Monday is an international Campaign that draws attention to sustainability for the planet. It is also an initiative to get people to begin their week with a healthy mindset. Also to note as our population continues to grow the ability to source particular resources becomes more difficult. If you amazing people on this earth decide to not eat meat for one day it has a dramatic positive affect on the long term health of our planet.
Should I be Eating Meat?
The decision to eat meat is completely up to you and how your body feels. Remember we all digest things differently. Recently my brothers become vegetarian and watching them avoid one source of food that they have been used to their whole life is somewhat inspirational. They say their energy is amazing. For me I still eat meat, however I do not eat as much as I used to. I personally feel if I was to avoid meat altogether my energy would lose out along with my muscle recovery, especially with the amount of exercise that I do. Most importantly listen to your body if you feel bloated, lacking in energy or lethargic, these are signs that your body is not responding to what your current food plan.
