There are a lot of reasons people give as to why they could never go vegan. Most of the reasons start with bacon (bacon-burgers, bacon-chocolate, bacon-bacon), but there are also genuine concerns like food pricing, taste and nutrition too! These considerations are especially relevant if you have more than one mouth to feed. Meat has been made so easily accessible and cheap in the modern market that it seems nearly impossible to eat any other way. The good news is The Humane League is here to help!

December 21, The Humane League presents a monthly occasion called Meatless Monday at the Free Library of Philadelphia. This educational, vegan-cooking demo is perfect for couples and families who are interested in living a more compassionate, healthful and sustainable lifestyle. According to the Academy of Nutrition, even small cutbacks in meat consumption can have multiple benefits on the body such as weight loss, increased energy, lowered risk for heart-related diseases and lowered risk for some forms of cancer. Not to mention, reducing cruelty towards animals and your carbon footprint will have a good effect on your conscience!
