Giada De Laurentiis Joins the Meatless Monday Movement

giada de laurentiis

Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?

Giada DeLaurentiis, host of Everyday Italian, cookbook author, Today Show contributor, wife and mom to 4-year-old Jade, has joined the Meatless Monday movement, preparing meatless meals in her own kitchen, and continuing to offer plenty of veggie-friendly recipes on her show and in her cookbooks.

In her latest cookbook, Weeknights With Giada, she says: “In an effort to eat healthfully and mindfully, we’ve started having Meatless Mondays in our house, which has coincided with my discovering my new favorite ingredient, quinoa. It’s got a nutter texture than rice and is higher in protein, which is great for vegetarian-friendly meals like quinoa with purple Peruvian potatoes, green peas, black olives, fresh herbs, lime juice and a little agave.”

Eat like you’re a member of Giada’s family tonight: Try the Quinoa and Purple Potato Salad Giada’s so crazy about, or one of Giada’s many meatless recipes.

Giada’s Best Meatless Recipes:

Tomato Vegetable Casserole

Spinach and Mushroom Ravioli

Fusilli With Spinach and Asiago Cheese

Taleggio and Pear Panini

cheese and pear sandwich

Italian Lentil Salad

Whole-Wheat Linguine With Green Beans, Ricotta and Lemon

And if you need some more guidance (and happen to be in New York City this spring), stop by Mario Batali’s Eataly; they’re now offering Meatless Monday classes, taught by in-house vegetable butcher Alicia Walter. (Yes, Eataly employs a vegetable butcher.)
