No Meat March is right around the corner! Are you willing to go meat free for 31 days?
For someone who grew up on a meat-and-three type diet, eating vegetarian or vegan might seem a little bit daunting, which is why I’m a big fan of giving meatless eating a go in little spurts. From Meatless Monday to The Weekend Vegan Challenge, there are lots of fun ways to dip your toe into meatless eating without totally committing to life-long plant-based eating.

If you’re ready to take meatless eating a little bit further, next month is a great opportunity! The Girls Gone Green are launching No Meat March 2013, a month-long vegetarian challenge.
Like I said, cutting out meat from your diet can seem a little bit extreme if you’re used to centering your plate around the meat. Take that steak away, and what’s left? Maybe some sad, steamed veggies? A side salad? Possibly a baked potato? That’s no fun at all!
Luckily, vegetarian and vegan eating goes way beyond a salad and a baked potato. It’s all about reimagining that plate to make plant-based foods like beans, veggies, nuts, and whole grains the stars of the show.
You don’t have to do this without support! On the next page, check out the intro video for No Meat March along with a list of vegetarian recipes to help you get started!
