Last week, the Los Angeles City Council passed a declaration that encourages all LA residents to go meat-free by sticking to a fresh diet at least every Monday . According to the resolution, council representatives Jan Perry and Ed Reyes cited environmental and health impacts of meat consumption. They also linked to positions published by The American Dietetic Association which acknowledge that reducing meat intake can decrease the risk of health problems including obesity, type-II diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. In an interview given to NBC Los Angeles, Jan Perry said, “I’ve become disconnected in some ways from the simple truth that our health is directly affected by the foods we eat
We couldn’t agree with Jan more. Here at Fresh ‘N Lean, we strongly. believe that our health is tied to our eating, and that by eliminating animal protein and having a fresh diet we believe it too. We proudly enjoy the fact that we offer organic fresh diet meal plans as alternative to enrich and educate Americas.
While the USDA recently retracted their support of “Meatless Monday,” which they had originally supported in an extensive internal communications newsletter, due to push-back from corporate interests in the meat industry, more organizations are starting to adopt “Meatless Monday” initiatives nationwide. Some offices have even created “Meatless Monday” cultures and actively encourage their staff to go meatless each week.
