If you missed Meatless Monday, doesn't mean you can't do a meatless Tuesday on your own.

"In 2009, a landmark National Cancer Institute study of 500,000 Americans between the ages of 50 and 71 found that people who eat a quarter-pound of red meat or processed meat every day were 30 percent more likely to die in the 10 years of the study than those who ate 5 ounces of red meat or less per week. Compare that to research about vegetarian Seventh-Day Adventists, many of whom live significantly longer than the average American." -- Death by Hamburger? by Kiera Butler (Mother Jones 2010-06-21).
