Meatless Mondays Here We Come
Are you started to run into a dead end road when it comes to flavorful recipes, that taste good, good for you, and are meatless? I hear your pain. I always recommend to my clients to try at least 1 day a week to go meatless. Step it up by going vegan for the day. Why? Well because meat is very acid forming, and it causes major inflammation all over the body.
When our body is full of inflammation, we are not able to run as we were designed. We don’t digest our food properly, and it can be the root of many diseases. A plant-based diet helps encourage an alkalized diet, which helps decrease inflammation. Plus a plant-based diet is full of amazing nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
