What's Up?

Remember way back in September when I mentioned to you that the Humane Society of the United States were offering a free weekly Meatless Monday recipe via e-mail? Did you sign up? If not, what are you waiting for? Well, now those same folks have put together a great little video about MM, showing how easy it is, what a difference it makes and the great reasons everyone should get on board with it. You should definitely take three minutes and watch this:

The MM movement has traveled so far across the world! Special thanks to loyal reader M.P. from Dublin, Ireland for the news that the Irish Times had included an article in their Health Gem section this week which was all about the benefits of MM. Favourite quote: "If you embrace the concept with a bit of gusto, you could use it as an opportunity to get creative in the kitchen each Monday and develop a whole new repertoire of healthy vegetarian meals." Way to focus on the positive, Ireland! 

This week's recipe is one we made for a family gathering last night. A surprisingly cheesy, but cheese-free macaroni dish. It is one we have been making for a long time, which we have adapted from one we originally saw in VegNews Magazine. For people with young children who might be picky eaters, it is a great way to include "stealth vegetables" in your kids' meals.
