Meatless Monday…

It is always discouraging when someone you know decides to follow the “Meatless Monday” movement. It is especially hard to understand when it is a close friend or family member. Why are your friends and family making these choices? Many think it is a better health choice, some are following a proclamation made by a celebrity, and others for personal or religious reasons.

Amanda Radke takes on the challenge of discussing the celebrity angle in her recent blog at

The blog post also includes a video in the “Meat Crusher” series from The American Meat Institute and American Meat Science Association. 

According to the Meat MythCrusher video, meat offers “a number of nutrition benefits that cannot be replaced without other dietary changes. Protein is a necessary part of the diet, and meat and poultry are considered complete proteins, meaning they provide all the essential amino acids needed for health.”

Radke suggests that we should show the video on social media sources to balance the conversation.
