By The Chew Crew September 30th, 2013

Not sold on the whole Meatless Monday deal?

First of all, let's define meatless. By meatless, The Chew Crew means eating vegetable based meals one day a week to avoid the saturated fats in many meats. As described by the Mayo Clinic, here are the major health benefits of going meatless just one day a week:

1. Reduce your risk of heart disease by as much as 19%

2. Reduce your risk of type 2 disabetes by 21%

3. Save your family $600 per year

Tell Us What You Think: Do you eat meatless one night each week in your house? What are some of your favorite dishes to prepare?
