Plant based Soba Noodle Salad

Updated: Dec 17, 2019

This plant-based recipe was inspired by a blog post written by my good friend and Dietitian Renee.


Renee invites us all to join her in 'Meat Free Mondays' and I absolutely love the idea! I love her message and passion to save our planet. Until recently I was unaware of the environmental impact of meat production.


Like Renee, I too don't believe going vegan is the answer. We can reduce our meat consumption by cutting it out 1 day a week, as a way to reduce our impact on the planet.


So I also invite you to do 'Meat Free Mondays' with me. This means no red meat, fish or chicken because we CAN make a difference!
