Meatless Monday Indy

meatless_monday_logo-large.png

The Meatless Monday Indy initiative is led by the Center of Wellness for Urban Women to bring awareness of the Meatless Monday campaign in Indy. We provide the information and recipes you need to start each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives. Visit out Meatless Monday Indy Facebook page for updates and great info.

Our community garden is one of the many ways we promote heart healthy meals.

WHAT IS MEATLESS MONDAY?

An international movement to help people reduce their meat consumption by 15% to improve personal health and the health of the planet. We are a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns, in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. 

WHY MEATLESS? On average, Americans consume 8 ounces of meat per day – 45% more than the USDA recommends. Going meatless once a week can reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help limit your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel. 

WHY MONDAY? Multiple studies have shown that periodic health prompts lead to positive behavior change. Monday is the beginning of the week, making it the perfect time to reevaluate our choices and set our intentions for the coming days. With a Meatless Monday, you have a scheduled, recurring reminder to start your week off on a nutritious note. And if this Monday passes you by, next week is another opportunity to focus on health!
