Carnegie Mellon University

University Health Services, in partnership with Carnegie Mellon Dining, Healthy Campus and the national Meatless Monday campaign, has launched a Meatless Monday intiative at Carnegie Mellon University.   

You are invited to participate:
•    Go meatless every Monday
•    Try meatless lunch options [.pdf] on campus
•    Join our Meatless Monday community and receive email updates and recipes
•    Host a Meatless Meeting or campus event

Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.
•    LIMIT CANCER RISK
•    REDUCE HEART DISEASE
•    FIGHT DIABETES
•    CURB OBESITY
•    LIVE LONGER
•    IMPROVE YOUR DIET
•    REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
•    MINIMIZE WATER USAGE
•    HELP REDUCE FOSSIL FUEL DEPENDENCE

For most Americans, the week begins on Monday. On Monday we move from the freedom of the weekend back to the structure of work or school. We set our intentions for the next six days. We plan ahead and evaluate progress.

From an early age we internalize this rhythm.  Studies suggest we are more likely to maintain behaviors begun on Monday throughout the week. That makes Monday the perfect day to make a change for your health and the health of our planet.
