If you’re serious about becoming healthy, preventing diseases of both the body and the mind, reducing pain, and living a long life, I want to encourage you to try reducing meat consumption for your health and happiness.

As a cancer and depression survivor, I take my healthy very seriously. And one of the things I do to protect my health is I don’t eat meat, because I don’t want to go through that hell again.

Meat has long been associated with all kinds of health problems from heart disease, diabetes, cancer (especially colon cancer), obesity, impotence, dementia, and so much more. It also affects our moods causing lethargy to depression. Studies consistently show people who live a healthy and long life eat little to no meat. Something to think about.

Benefits of Meatless Mondays:

Going meatless Mondays or any day of the week is incredibly smart for you, your loved ones, and our whole planet. Here are some benefits:

It will save you ton of money. Meats continue to be very expensive.
It is a healthier option that decreases risks for pain & illnesses and increase longevity.
You’ll avoid eating fat, hormones, GMOs, dyes, pesticides, artificial additives, etc. Ew!
Gives your body a break since meat takes 48 hours to digest while causing havoc for the body and your mood.
It reduces carbon footprint, greenhouse effect, waste, and fuel usage. More than 50% of pollution is derived from agricultural industries.
It increases clean air and water, and reduces animal cruelty and save lives.
Making vegetarian dishes are easier, faster, and less to clean up!

It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Try reducing meat consumption once a week to start. And when buying meat, always opt for organic and grass fed meats. Also, try eating more fish and seafood, which you can eat up to 3-5 times a week. They also have more nutrients and have fewer calories and fat.

So try going meatless at least once a week for your health and happiness. You have nothing to lose. Get your whole family and friends involved and they’ll learn for their whole lives and pass it on.
