FAQ

Does it have to be a Monday?

No any day of the week is fine.

When you say meat, what do you mean?

Anything derived from a dead animal. So anything with gelatin in counts too and cheeses made with rennet. To keep it simple, look out for products that are vegetarian.

Is a fish an animal?

Yes! They are off limits for this day too.

Why does not eating meat have such a big impact?

Simply put, because you are taking a load of steps out of the food production stage - most meat animals are fed on crops which takes space, water and soil that could be used for veggies. Plus the animals need water and space too.

Beware of

Hidden meat

Some wines and beers are made using gelatin (gelatin is made by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones in water).
