Inspired by Meatless Monday, a campaign encouraging people to cut back on their meat consumption one day a week, TakePart's "Meatless 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.
A huge perk to farmer's market shopping is experimenting with unfamiliar fruits and veggies. The hard part is knowing how to prepare them.
Rachael, the brains and bronze behind oh-so-delicious food blog La Fuji Mama, takes some of that guess work out with a recipe for one of summer's prettiest root veggies—the mighty beet.
Rachael's Warm Beet Salad recipe is a cinch. With a dash of lemon zest and a little pan frying, you'll be licking your lips in no time. Add pecans and a bit of honey, and you've got a gourmet dish on your hands.
Psst...don't toss the beet greens—you'll use those, too!
