As the weather starts to make it’s annual turn toward warmer breezes and melting snow piles, our bodies are longing for less heavy dishes and more light veggie meals. We are taking up the Food Revolution Team‘s challenge to eat meatless for one week in March. Eating less meat is a healthy break for our bodies and an opportunity to discover new dishes. So, I’m busy preparing for a meatless week. I have gathered together 15 kid friendly meatless recipes as we prepare for a week of Meatless Mondays!
