Did you know Meatless Monday is not just limited to the United States? Our friends Down Under have their own Meatless Monday site and tagline: “One day a week, cut out meat…for the people, for the planet.” The Meatless Mondays Australia site is chock full of great information and ideas – check it out.
So I was looking around for thoughtful and thought provoking articles/images for today’s post and I found something that you might find interesting, definitely challenging, on the Farm Sanctuary website. At first I thought I would not post it, because I am not the type to be “all up in someone’s face” about things, but then I thought, “Why not? It is good to challenge ourselves and our thinking.” So, in the interest of giving you something to challenge your mind, as well as your body (don’t forget about this week’s boot camp workout), here is today’s post – Adapted from Farm Sanctuary’s Educational Resource Materials: Cultivating Compassion.

- It is acceptable to eat any animal because…
Like I said, this is just to get you thinking. On that note, I will pass it to Underdog.
For it’s hip! hip! hip! and away I go.
Have a great start to your week,
