Meatless Mondays

Foraging for a Healthy and Sustainable Meal

I've written other posts about my struggle with choosing foods that are healthy and sustainable. I came up with a list to guide my shopping and did some research on food labels. Then a colleague, Kat, shared an article from HBR that provides an easy answer. 
Eliminating meat from your diet just one day a week is more effective than buying everything you eat locally. 
When it comes to reducing your food-related carbon footprint, you can have the greatest impact by reducing the amount of meat that you eat -- most notably if that meat is beef. And, a vegetarian or flexitarian diet is good for your health. View this slideshow to learn more.

We're adding some "Green" books to the HR Library in preparation for our Green Living event in October. I've ordered these two, but I'm looking for other recommendations. Please share your favorites. 

I was struggling with this post because it was full of links. Thanks to Steve Boese for introducing me to Slidestaxx.

Wow, I didn't realize that meat has so much carbon footprint. I guess it's time to go vegetarian=) Thanks for the heads up.
