Following in the tradition of The Great American Smokeout, the Meatout encourages us to kick the meat habit.  Quitting meat altogether may not interest you, so maybe avoiding it one day a week, or two or three meals a week or only March 20th would be more feasible.  Any way you shake it, cutting back or eliminating meat in our diets will make us and our planet healthier. 

I encourage you to find a meatout event to visit.  This link will show you all the events in your area.  If you are unable to attend an event, you can certainly go it alone to achieve the same result.

Great to see you promoting the Meatout. Every day for me is meatout and has been for nearly 40 years.

There is such a variety of foodstuffs with no animal products included it should be easy to do it at least one day a week with the added bonus of helping towards saving the planet.

Happy Meatouts :)

Jackie,
I just took a look at your website, I am impressed by the amount of vegan recipes you have listed.

We think that going vegetarian at least one day a week is a reasonable way to impact a positive change (planet, health, etc) without people having to change their entire lives.

Thank you for reading and posting! It is much appreciated.
