31 days of healthy, nutrient dense food awaits you
When was the last time you stopped and really thought about where your food comes from? How does your meat get from paddock to plate? What is the true cost of that burger- from a financial, medical and environmental perspective?

Sustainable and ethical food choices are influencing the food choices we make. Farmers markets are increasing in popularity and there is a strong push towards the Slow Food Movement, which promotes the sourcing of local produce and ingredients. When you weigh up the environmental and health impacts of consuming meat, there is a strong case to reduce your meat consumption.

One way to get started is to try Meat Free Monday, where you incorporate one meat free day per week into your diet. But if you are looking for a bigger challenge, why not sign up for No Meat March?

No Meat March, an initiative of the Girls Gone Green, is a 31 day pledge to explore the vegetarian lifestyle. Rather than depriving yourself of meat, the aim is to allow yourself to try something new, discover new recipes, and explore the environmental and health impacts of meat.

The No Meat March website provides a variety of resources to help you. The site includes recipes, a comprehensive listing of food substitutes, a forum to help support you in your goal and links to helpful information.

For more information and to sign up for the pledge, visit the No Meat March website or No Meat March Facebook Page.

I assume that you're in Australia Jan. Your article is so apt as we've just had a big scare here in the UK. Apparently very cheap supermarket beefburgers have been found to be contaminated with pork and horsemeat. I'm not sure that some of the meat actually even saw a paddock.

Scary isn't it, Sandra? The horsemeat scare is really appalling- mainly because of the lack of oversight. We should not have to DNA test our food to know what is in it!
