March is animal aid’s meat free month

adnimal aid go veggie meat free monthBetter late than never, March is a animal aid’s month long celebration of meat free cooking.

we’ve all been hearing how a meat free diet is supposed to be better for us and the environment, so why not give it a go? You don’t have to turn vegetarian overnight, but this is a great opportunity to experiment with new tastes.

Perhaps you could commit to two veggie meals this week. Whether your reasons are ethical, environmental or health based, you’ll find a wide range of tasty alternatives to the traditional meat and two veg fayre.

While we find ourselves in a credit crunch, there has never been a better time to increase your fruit, veg and pulses and decrease the amount of meat you eat. You’ll find it easier on your bank balance. Animal aid have created a fabulous ‘Feed four for under a fiver‘ pdf to get you inspired and motivated.

If you find the thought of going without meat daunting, then there are a range of ‘meat substitute’ products such as fake bacon, sausages and burgers available through companies such as Redwoods and Linda mcCartney. Although I don’t personally ‘agree’ with these anymore, it can definitely help support the transition. When I first gave up meat I found these, as well as quorn and tvp products very useful – especially for my meat-eating boyfriend (or so he thought!)

Do you have a favourite meat free recipe to share?
