The last daily action step in the Greens. Grains. Gorgeous. 30 Day Challenge last month was to plan a party, so I got crackin’ to come up with something super fun! The hubs was heading out of town on a really cool men’s adventure in the Sierra Mountains, so I thought that would give me the perfect opportunity to host a little ladies brunch.
We had some delicious, healthy, vegetarian food, a lovely little mimosa bar, fancy infused water, loose leaf tea… the works. And it was a great excuse to whip out our china too (I’m a big fan of using china as much as possible… screw saving it for the formal dinners!).

I get that going totally plant-based isn’t for everyone. I myself eat seafood a couple of times a week, and have no intention of cutting it from my eating. But regardless of where you are on the omnivore-herbavore spectrum, taking at least one day out of the week to go totally meatless has some major health benefits, and is definitely worth making a regular healthy habit.
Rocking a Meatless Monday just once a week will:
- Lower your cancer risk
- Reduce your risk of heart disease
- Help you lose weight
- Reduce risk of diabetes
- Increase lifespan
- Improve your nutrition
- Reduce your carbon footprint
Pretty powerful stuff for just one day of healthy plant-based eating, right??
Here are some great recipes to get you started:
