In preparation for Meatless Monday

Ok, so Sangeeta and I have a deal with each other to try and be healthful while also reducing our negative impact on the environment by reducing the amount of meat in our diets and dedicating at least one day a week to not eating any meat.

Lucky for me, the West End Farmers' Market is on Sundays. My haul this week, from top to bottom: summer squash, zuchinni, heirloom tomatoes, basil, and new potatoes. I have to use all this in 2 days, since I leave for Spain on Wednesday, so I won't have much space for meat in my
diet even if I wanted to!

It’s great to see you’re committing to Meatless Monday! I intern with the non-profit Meatless Monday, a project of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, that encourages cutting meat consumption tor educe the risk of preventable disease while lowering our environmental impact. The website is full of recipes that make going meatless delicious and I thought the Zucchini (or Summer Squash!) Pancakes with Diced Tomatoes would make good use of your groceries too! Check out the recipe and more here: Also, the Youtube video describes the history and science behind the campaign: Thanks! Ashwini
