#4 Money Many people save money by adding meatless meals to their weekly menus. Meatless meals are built around vegetables, beans and grains—instead of meat, which tends to be more expensive.

#5 Animals The most important point. We are a long way from our hunter gatherer pasts where we had to work together to hunt for meat. Today animals are getting mis-treated in order to meet the worlds needs for meat. By eating less meat you are creating a lesser demand. For all the other days of the week make sure you choose local farmers meat, free range and organic to make sure the meat you are eating has had the best possible life.
