Welcome to Meatless Monday, a column in the spirit of the Meatless Monday initiative, which promotes going without meat one day a week to reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.
Here we'll share favorite recipes in which fruits and vegetables are the main attraction. This week, we're kicking things off with the most important meal of the day: breakfast!
