Meatless Monday logoMeatless Monday is an international movement to encourage people to reduce their meat consumption by 15%.  On average, Americans are consuming too much red and processed meat, which leads to a greater intake of saturated fat. One day a week, eat more fruits, vegetables, grains and beans to reduce your risk of developing chronic, preventable conditions like heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes and certain types of cancer.  Consuming less meat is good for the environment too, limiting our carbon footprint and preserving precious resources like water and fossil fuels.  Interested in starting Meatless Monday?  Visit the Meatless Monday website for free resources.

Quit and Stay Quit Monday logo Tobacco users often wait for special occasions to quit, like birthdays or the new year, but most will eventually relapse.  Quit and Stay Quit Monday is an effort to change that by giving tobacco users who want to quit a weekly chance to commit, quit and recommit to their quit.  Tobacco users can use Monday to plan ahead, anticipate triggers, celebrate progress, or check in with their quit buddy.  Quit and Stay Quit Monday offers weekly support and resources for individuals, cessation specialists and organizations.
