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?
Swiss chard: you know you’re supposed to eat it (leafy greens cure everything from cold sores to the plague, it seems.) But really, does anyone really know what to do with chard? Spinach and lettuce are no-brainers, and everyone’s mastered kale by now. But Swiss chard often gets ignored. Don’t pass it by the next time you encounter a bunch at the market. The easiest way to cook chard, like many mystery vegetables, is to saute it in a little olive oil and garlic and serve it over pasta.
