I like the idea of Meat Free Mondays. I'm very aware that my deep love of meat makes me shockingly un-green and possibly quite unhealthy.
I just wonder why in a climate that encourages us to think about waste and practise recycling, someone picked the day that traditionally a British household has meat based leftovers from Sunday lunch to go veggie? Shouldn't we be re-using those delicious morsels rather than going to the supermarket for more food we don't really need? It seems like a mixed message to me.
I'll be striking a compromise and going meat free another day of the week. Maybe it won't scan so nicely, but my heart'll be the same place!
