Challenge #3

Go Vegetarian!

This challenge comes from Sargent Choice – our partner in healthy eating. In honor of Vegetarian Awareness Month, we’re challenging you to go vegetarian at least 3 days this week! There’s a whole national backing to this idea, it’s called Meatless Monday. It’s pretty incredible to think that producing a hamburger requires the same amount of water that you would use by taking 40 showers using a low-flow shower nozzle! Imagine the difference you can make if you went vegetarian just once a week every week!

Sargent Choice partnered with Sabrina Pashtan, Sustainability Coordinator for Dining Services, to create a campaign called Make a Difference Mondays. Each Make a Difference Monday the dining halls go pork- and beef-free and serve as many local foods as possible. The first Make a Difference Monday is today so be sure to check out the dining halls’ selections & gather ideas for the rest of the week!

What are some other reasons for going vegetarian?

  • Like we said, what an impact on the environment!
  • Cheaper on your wallet
  • Good for your health
  • More variety in your diet
  • An excuse to try out new recipes!

Tips for Going Vegetarian:

  • Start small – if an entire day of vegetarian eating is too much try out just one meal
  • Think it might be too hard to go veg as a student eating in the dining hall? Keating Simmons, Dietetic Intern, Sargent Choice Nutrition Center is here to help, check out her tips here and check out our other vegetarian-related posts.
  • If you’re a parent with picky kids, and think vegetarian meals are way out of the picture turn to Meal Makeover Moms.  Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD and Liz Weiss, MS, RD are both Sargent Alumni and cook up some tasty kid friendly vegetarian recipes.
  • Experiment with new recipes! Check out Vegetarian Times and Post Punk Kitchen for some inspiration!

To win this week’s raffle: Upload a picture of one of your vegetarian meals to Sargent College’s Facebook page or tell us what your vegetarian meal was!

Sometimes it’s like: If something terrifies you, you should totally do it BECAUSE it terrifies you…
