You’ve probably heard that eating less meat is good for your health—and the environment. You’ve probably even heard of Meatless Mondays – when you dedicate one day a week to eating all vegetarian meals.

To keep things simple, we’re sharing 5 of our favorite dinner recipes for your first month of Meatless Mondays. Bon Appetit!
