99 Meatless Meal Recipes: Join the Movement

As more facts that show climate change is real and likely due to human activities*, the more passionate I become about taking better care of our planet. Meatless Meals are one easy way that we all can help our environment.

How does not eating meat help the environment? Good question, one that I asked not too long ago.

In my recent post that offers 15 easy eco-friendly habits that everyone should be doing, I highlighted the following fact:

If every American would not eat meat or cheese one day per week, it would  have the same  climate change prevention effect as taking 7.6 million cars off the road for 1 year.




That’s an immense positive difference you and I can make in this world!

An added benefit of meatless meals is that they are generally very budget-friendly since meat is usually the most expensive ingredient.

Are you ready to join the Meatless Mondays movement and help our environment? Great!

    1. I appreciate all the work you put into creating the post. It’s a lot of work to not only make but then photograph and format it all. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes!

    1. Hi Tamara, thank you so much for sharing your recipes. They look delicious and I’m anxiously “eating” my way through the list. Much appreciation for your wonderful recipe posts.

    1. I think going meatless – whether it’s meatless Monday’s, vegetarian, or vegan – is becoming more adopted by all ages. My daughter inspired me a few years back when she lived at home and made delicious vegetarian meals. Hope you enjoy the new recipes.

  1. So many amazing meals! I’m a vegan now so I would need to alter a lot of these to take out dairy but that’s easy enough. I stopped eating meat about two and half years ago and lived off of posts like this for a while. Now that I’m used to eating vegan I cook every single meal but it tends to get repetitive LOL so these posts come in handy from time to time!!

    1. Hi Rob, that’s great that you’re able to modify recipes fairly easily. When a way of eating makes you feel good, it’s easier to stick to the ingredients. Thanks for the input from a vegan perspective.
