Meatless Mondays: Better for your health; better for the environment

Almost 12 million Canadians are eating less meat, according to an Environics Research poll from 2015. Going meatless once a week can do wonders for your health, such as reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. And, going meatless once a week can also help reduce our carbon footprint.

Based on an article from the National Peanut Board, eating more unsaturated fats than saturated fats can lower the risk of heart disease and improve healthy cholesterol levels. Plant-based food, such as peanuts, beans and vegetables contain fibre, which helps with digestion and weight maintenance.
