Meatless Monday is a global movement with a simple message – cut the meat!
It launched in 2003. It is a nonprofit initiative of the Monday Campaigns. It is embraced by 39 countries.
I have been doing this for about 2 years now, and it has become so easy.
For lunch today black beans and yellow rice and a Boca Burger I really like Boca Burgers, just on their own. But then dinner was another matter…I had a lot of left over veggies sitting in the fridge and those mushrooms that were just about to go bad. I had a can of cream of celery soup and some vegetable broth (okay I didn’t have vegetable broth I used chicken) Anyway, I mixed the broth and cream of celery and we all know that using a cream of soup makes everything much better. Next I added green beans and some potatoes, then some spinach then the mushrooms, salt and pepper. Now, at lunch, I put the black beans on the yellow rice and put it in the fridge. I wanted the rice and a little of the black beans. The soup turned out so great, really a great flavorful melding of spices and vegetables.
I highly recommend trying a leftover soup in your future.

Luv this. As a veggie since I was in my teens, I believe the world would benefit immensely if all embraced a plant based diet.
I totally agree. I just wish people would make an effort. Oh and thanks!
