It's VegWeek!

If you haven't already heard, today marks the kickoff of VegWeek, an opportunity to take the 7-day veg pledge.  It's easy to start the week with Meatless Monday... then all you have to do is carry it through for a few more days to see how it feels.

For 7 days, celebrate the many benefits of choosing plant-based foods -- for your health, the planet, and the animals.  It's a fun way to discover new and delicious meat-free meals.  You can make it official by signing up for the Veg Pledge right here, where you can receive a VegWeek starter pack with literature and free coupons.  You may even win prizes from some of the awesome sponsors like Gardein, The Vegg, and Field Roast, to name but a few.

A great recipe to start the week off with is my Gluten-free Black Bean Quinoa Cakes.  They're packed with protein, easy to make, and are a great alternative to frozen veggie burgers.  Plus, they're so delicious you may never want to go back to eating hamburgers!  Give them a try, and take the Veg Pledge today!
