Read the latest blog from Steve Cornett.
The Washington Post has a take on Meatless Mondays that is fairly well sourced and presents a more balanced view of the anti-meat movement than some of what you read these days.
Well, “balanced” in the sense that writer Jane Black does include a couple of quotes from the meat industry and does end with a quote suggesting “moderation.”
She does, like about all of the reporters who follow food trends, fail to note the long-term decline in red meat consumption in the U.S. and seems not to have noticed that the decline has coincided with a long-term incline in obesity and weight-related health problems.
Someday, they’ll notice. Until then, red meat will continue to be the least trendy food in the U.S.

We need a catcher phrase than Meatless Monday, something like More Moo on Monday.
You got one right Steve, beef doesnt make you fat or overweight.
