I honestly don’t know how it has taken me 40 years to arrive at the conclusion that eating meat is bad for me, for the planet and well just plain GROSS. I mean I profess to love my rescue dogs and yet I am willing to sacrifice the lives of farm animals so I can serve them on a bun?! It just doesn’t make good sense ( whereas this Weight Watchers ChickPea Patties – Zero Points recipe makes all the sense but I digress).
And the truth is every time I look at a package of slabs of beef saran wrapped at the grocery I just see faces–faces of all the poor animals who didn’t deserve to meet their deaths because I wanted a burger.
I know what you are thinking– I don’t really feel a kinship with animals so therefore I have no problem eating them. Well I will counter that argument with this report released by the World health organization– in which The WHO’s cancer research unit now classifies processed meat as “carcinogenic to humans” based on evidence from hundreds of studies, and linked it specifically to colon, or colorectal, cancer. Bottom line- it’s GOOD for your health to consider my Tips for Transitioning to a Plant-Based Diet so You Can Switch for Good or at least try doing a #MeatlessMonday!
And this recipe for Weight Watchers ChickPea Patties – Zero Points is the perfect way to kick off your Meatless monday!
