Is vegetarianism or veganism too much to ask of your meat-loving family? Try Flexitarianism – a growing trend of people with a loose loyalty to meat-free eating. This semi-vegetarian diet focuses on a vegetarian diet while allowing for occasional meat eating too. It is this concept, along with the well-known health and environmental benefits that lead to Meatless Monday – a nonprofit with a mission to reduce meat consumption by 15% (one day a week) in order to improve personal health and the health of our planet.
