meatlessmonday As grassroots Meatless Monday initiatives continue to spread through communities and households across the country, the trend is being embraced by some of the nation’s greatest chefs.  

Celebrity chef Mario Batali has implemented Meatless Mondays in all 14 of his renowned restaurants, such as Babbo, Esca, Casa Mono and Carnevino Italian Steakhouse. Yes, even a steakhouse! Every Monday, Chef Batali’s menus feature delicious meatless alternatives for those customers looking to get healthy and help the environment by eliminating 15% of their saturated fat intake by making Monday… meatless. 

Wolfgang Puck has introduced Meatless Mondays in Puck Pizzeria & Cucina at Crystals at CityCenter in Las Vegas  and Chef John Frazer of  New York City’s Dovetail restaurant says business is up significantly on Mondays since he instituted the program.  “People are looking for healthy alternatives in increasing numbers so it just makes sense,” he says.

Meatless Monday (www.meatlessmonday.com ) is an initiative of The Monday Campaigns, a nonprofit organization working in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Moving away from saturated fat diet and toward a flavor challenging road for cooks and chefs while composing healthy water mouthing meatless dishes.
