eat less bambi and wilbur.

Made it to Queens to see the manfriend slash crash at his place while I attend BEA (the BookExpo) in the big city this week. Excited to walk around, talk to publishers and be surrounded by (free) books. And since it's Monday...let's make it meat free.

Traditionally, I am a meat eater, unless I think about it too hard or watch a Disney movie. We all know that meat is not something that you should eat excess amounts of. Well, Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney say so anyway. And I have never met a McCartney that I couldn’t trust. In 2009 they launched their Meat Free Monday campaign, trying to encourage people to cut down on their meat eating.

Annie Rigg compiled a cookbook of meat free recipes to make the transition a bit easier for us carnivores. The Meat Free Monday Cookbook is filled with vegetarian only recipes created by the McCartney’s as well as celebrity and chef supporters of the campaign. These recipes will inspire you, while also helping to ease your fear of vegetables. It’s only one day a week, and you can still eat cheese people. It’s common knowledge that if you can eat cheese you can survive anything.

To learn more about the Meat Free Monday campaign, get involved and/or get free recipes check out the website at: Gwyneth Paltrow and Kelly Osbourne do it.

***I was given the opportunity to give-a-way TWO of these fabulous cookbooks. For a chance to win, email your name, address and this book title to:! I'll choose my two winners at random by the end of the week.
