Sir Paul McCartney Says Lay Off the Meat

His designing daughter Stella is strict vegetarian, and now Sir Paul McCartney is hoping we will all be vegetarian one day a week as well.

The former Beatle hosted a luncheon to kick off Britain's Meat Free Monday campaign. There are obvious health benefits to reducing your meat intake, but Paul became involved because of the environmental impact of limiting meat consumption as well. He said:

A couple of years ago the United Nations came out with a report that said for people to eat less meat would have a big impact on the environment. It's all got a bit out of hand and I think people want to do their bit to bring it back into line, and this is an answer we've got involved in."

See which Hollywood types attended the event to support the notion of not eating meat on the first day of the week when you read more.

Kate Bosworth and Kelly Osbourne were there, as well as Yoko Ono and Moby.

Not sure what to make for dinner tonight. Try my Mediterranean Salad With Chickpea Patties or Curried Quinoa Salad. You might also want to try Sesame Maple Roasted Tofu as well. To learn more about a similar program here in the states, check out Meatless Monday.
