Whether you're a vegetarian or not, it's a good idea to make the move toward eating less meat and more vegetables — for environmental, health, and budgetary reasons alike. If you've already started with meatless Mondays and want to take it to the next step, apply the same principle to your Sundays as well. You'll begin the week on a lighter step.
