Meatless Monday

Meatless_logo So, I was reading an article in Newsweek about Food Inc., a documentary about America's food industry. The article in the Newsweek print edition quoted  Michael Pollan, a New York Times magazine contributing writer who covers  issues dealing with diet and the business of eating in America. So, in the article, Pollan mentioned he's a fan of Meatless Monday, where people go one day a week without eating something from the animal kingdom. 

The Meatless Monday movement is pushed by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. According to the website, going meatless at least one day a week forces you to eat food that's better for your heart and your weight. Also, the meatless diet saves the earth's water supply. Hey! I thought eating vegetarian was good for your wallet, too! Where are the Frugalistas in this movement? heheheh.

Anyway, I was pretty captivated by Pollan, Food Inc. and the Meatless Monday movement. I am not a vegetarian, for the record, but I'm sure I could try one day without meat.
Frugalistas, what do you think? Are you a big meat fan? Could you go a day without meat? What do you think about the vegetarian lifestyle? Do you put pork on your fork? Is meat too expensive?
