The McCartneys are some of the most well-known supporters of the Meat Free Monday movement. Whether you're interested in making the move to meatless meals, or simply looking for lovely recipes, get your hands on this cookbook!
Maybe you’ve been eliminating meat from your meals each Monday, maybe you’d like to but don’t know where to start or maybe you’re just looking for some mouth-watering recipes. If you’re searching for inspiration to help you create colorful, fresh and delicious meat-free meals for your Mondays, this cookbook has you covered.
The Meat Free Monday campaign was launched in 2009 by Sir Paul and his daughters, and is the U.K. version of Meatless Monday in the U.S. After learning of the environmental value and health benefits of eating less meat, the McCartneys wanted to do something as a family to encourage others to eliminate meat from their diets. It was suggested to them that if enough people stopped eating meat just one day a week, it could have a considerable and favorable effect on the Earth’s climate.
Marching through the seasons from spring through winter, The Meat Free Monday Cookbook is bursting with meatless recipes for each Monday of the week, for the entire year. The way the cookbook is organized makes it easy to plan your meals. What you’ll find on the pages are recipes for a breakfast, a packed lunch, a sit-down lunch, a side dish, dinner and dessert -- all for one day, each week out of the year.
The family wrote the cookbook’s foreword, which notes, “We feel that the vast majority of people are conscientious and would want to do something in their own lives to help secure a happy future for generations that follow.” Along with recipes from the McCartneys, the cookbook includes recipes from a range of celebrities like Pink, Woody Harrelson, Pamela Anderson and Mario Batali.
Each recipe in the book is paired with gorgeous, colorful imagery, is easy to follow and comes with simple descriptions. The best part of the cookbook -- aside from the recipes themselves -- is that your Monday meal is planned out for you if you choose to follow along. So easy!
