What is the Great American Meatout Day?

It's the world's largest and oldest annual grassroots diet education campaign that's held on or around the first day of Spring. Supporters try to educate communities about healthy eating by asking everyone to "kick the meat habit (at least for a day) and explore wholesome foods such as fruits, veggies and whole grains.

Informative and educational Meatout events will be held all across the US and in many other countries. Activities will include colorful 'lifestivals,' street theater, lectures, public dinners, cooking demos, food samplings, leafleting, information tables called 'steakouts,' and a Congressional Reception in Washington, DC. You can read more about it at the meatout website.

Well this sounds like some fun festivals to go to but...... could I kick the no meat thing personally??? Ummm..... NOPE! (Thinking) Maybe for one day. I'm a true meat and potato eater myself and so is Stephen but I think we could support the cause by going to one of their events and enjoying some cool and refreshing fruit salad I think. I do love fruit salad especially if it's made with whipped cream. Learning about better health is always a good thing and it never hurts to learn more about better nutrition. Happy Great American Meatout Day everyone.
