Meatless Monday – Edamame Hummus (OMG! Heavenly!!!)

Happy Meatless Monday to you!!!   Did you know that you can improve your personal health and the health of the planet by eating less meat?  Meatless Monday, a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns in association with the Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Healthy, tells us, “By cutting out meat once a week, we can improve our health, reduce our carbon footprint and lead the world in the race to reduce climate change.”

When Our Lady of Weight Loss and I got together on Sunday (as we do every Sunday!) to plan our week, meals included, we realized that we tend toward meatless meals almost every day.  With regard to weight loss, you most definitely get a lot more bang for your calorie buck (or ‘point’ buck) when you travel The Meatless Route.
