This trend is all about sustainable, healthy eating by cutting out meat products at least once a week. Some look at this as a healthy way to keep a clean diet and others look at it as an environmentally friendly action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. No matter what the reason, it is clear that Meatless Monday will be around for some time. Today, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together an explanation of Meatless Monday and a guide to help residents of the Sandstone Apartments and Executive Suites in Elora get involved with this trend in a safe and healthy manner.

 

While we may not be aware, the foods we eat have a large impact on the environment. According to Earthsave Canada, “animal agriculture is responsible for 18 to 25 percent of global warming emissions worldwide.” Over 70 percent of deforestation in the Amazon is a result of cattle ranches and feed production, making the livestock sector one of the largest sources of water pollution worldwide. Producing animal protein requires the use of more resources for a smaller yield, whereas plant proteins require fewer resources and yield more results.

 

Diets low in meat, eggs and dairy and higher in vegetables and fruits, according to the World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization (WHO/FAO), have been associated with a lower risk of Type 2 Diabetes, various types of cancer, Heart Disease and Osteoporosis. The Elora Farmers’ Market, which is a five-minute drive and 25-minute walk from the Elora apartments, is the place to visit for fresh, local produce. Simply going meatless one day a week can make an incredible difference a big difference to your health.

 

If you’re worried that cutting meat will also cut the protein from your diet, worry not. Protein can be obtained from beans, whole grains, nuts and vegetables, which boast all those healthy benefits listed above. Meatless Monday’s Straight Talk on Protein article outlines a short list of protein sources you can enjoy on Meatless Monday. It is also worth noting that as a global average; only 30 percent of protein is derived from animal sources. All of these healthy options are available at Dar’s Country Market located at 6458 Wellington Road 7. The store is a six-minute drive and 48-minute walk from the Sandstone Apartments and a five-minute drive and 24-minute walk from the Executive Suites.

 

Get started on your Meatless Monday cooking by visiting Pinterest for arrays of meal recipes that you won’t believe are meatless. Skinny Ms’ Skinny Lasagna Rolls and Two Peas and Their Pod’s Crispy Black Bean Quinoa Burritos and Avocado Mac and Cheese are some delicious options to start with.

Grab the last-minute ingredients for your Meatless Monday at Foodland located at 3646 Lobsinger Line in St. Clements.
