We love this cookbook, packed with vegetarian recipes from experts, celebrity chefs, and even the McCartney family's personal recipes.

If you're wondering how to reduce the meat in your diet, The Meat Free Monday Cookbook: A Full Menu for Every Monday of the Year will inspire you look at your kitchen in a whole new way.

From the forward to the book, the Mary, Stella, and Paul McCartney explain the start of Meat Free Monday in 2009. "When I read an article regarding the 2006 report by the United Nations called Livestock's Long Shadow, I was mostly interested in the fact that this was coming from an organization that did not have a vested interest in vegetarianism. It's so easy for people to say 'Well, you would say that, wouldn't you?' whenever a discussion of a meat-free lifestyle takes place, but here we had an organization with no such bias informing us that the meat industry was an even bigger contributor to climate change than the whole of the transport industry put together."

With this information, they landed on the idea of Meat Free Monday. The McCartneys say, "It has emerged that many people like the idea because, firstly, it's not too difficult to do, and, secondly, it provides people with a positive way to do something in their own life to benefit the planet's ecology."

Vegetables, grains, fruit...breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert...we hope you enjoy these meat-free recipes, organized for 52 weeks and 4 seasons.
