Vote for Meatless Mondays! (VIDEO)

Americans eat more meat per capita than nearly any other nation in the world, and it shows. Whether you’re a vegetarian or meat-eater, it seems all of us agree that it would be better for public health, the planet, and animals if the Standard American Diet (SAD) incorporated more plants and fewer animals.

Fortunately, that’s what’s starting to happen, as Meatless Mondays are catching on all across the country. From school districts to hospital cafeterias to restaurant chains, more Americans are experiencing the benefits of meat-free fare. And now a great video from the Humane Society of the United States explaining the why, who, and how of Meatless Monday has been nominated for a DoGooder award! You can vote for the Meatless Monday video the “Large Organization” category here. Watch the video:

    it is the grains and cheap carbs, not animal fat that is the health concern. We also have reduced fat from our diet over the last fourty years and obestity has skyrocketed. Fear the bread, not the butter. No vote from me, eat grass fed humanely treated livestock and stay away from all industrial farming animal and vegetable.
