Useful Tips: Meatless Days

Meatless Fridays, Meatless Mondays or Meatless Sundays, they've been around a while. I have been reading about people taking a day out of the week to go meatless in attempts at healthier eating or just to say you can do it. Well, it's also a good idea to go meatless one or two times a week to save some money.

Start trying out some vegetarian recipes and before you know it, you may find out that you actually like and feel better because of it!

To make your meatless days even more significant, try using produce that you grew yourself or if you don't have a garden (you should, you know), buy from your farmer's market and support locally grown foods. If you don't have a farmer's market, then so some green shopping at places that sell organically grown produce.

Ok, so you're saying you just can't live without meat even for just one day of the week? Then try reducing the amount of meat you use in your dishes at first. Make a vegetable heavy soup or something. Or stirfries work really well too, just reduce the meat and use more vegetables.

If you have to have meats, you can also save some money by buying tougher cuts of meats which are usually cheaper, and make soups or stews. And if you can stand it, throw in lots of vegetables in the pot.

That's the useful tip of the day! Cut down on meats, save money and save your health.
