Inspired by Meatless Monday, a campaign encouraging people to cut back on their meat consumption one day a week, TakePart's "Meatless on Mondays" will give you every reason you need to skip the steak. By going vegetarian one day a week, you reduce your environmental impact, expand your palate, and improve your health.

Stir-frying is one of our favorite ways of whipping up a quick and easy dinner that packs a huge flavor punch. Shawna Newberry at Would Rather Gather says this luscious-looking dish is a staple comfort food from her childhood. The best part? The recipe is flexible, so you can use whichever vegetables you have on hand if you don't want to make an extra trip to the store. There are a few exotic ingredients in here, like star anise seed pods, but don't let that scare you off.
