March is National Nutrition Month, and the University Bookstore and Food Services are celebrating with a Meatless Monday Instagram contest.

Every Monday, the University Bookstore will be giving away a vegetarian cookbook to students who post a photo of their Meatless Monday meal from Food Services on Instagram and tag both the University Bookstore and Food Services.

In order to encourage small changes in eating habits that could have a lasting impact, Food Services will also send out Meatless Monday reminders via the Food Services Announcement Group. These reminders will include a list of that Monday's meatless meal options. Why go meatless?

  • Save money - Adding meat to a meal increases the cost.

  • Sustainability - Consuming less meat can improve health and can lower the environmental impact of your food.

  • More fruits and veggies - On Meatless Mondays, challenge yourself to increase your week's intake of plant-based vitamins and minerals.

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

Meatless Monday is a global movement founded in 2003 by Sid Lerner in association with the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. According to the movement, skipping meat one day a week is great for personal health and better for the planet.
