National Week Without Meat And Dairy

It’s almost here: the National Week Without Meat and Dairy 2023 is coming up! From March 6 through March 12, the Netherlands will once again commit to a more sustainable and healthier diet. The goal of this week is to make people more aware of their diet and its impact on the environment and animal welfare.

Why participate?

You may be wondering why you should participate in this week without meat and dairy. There are numerous reasons to participate in this week. First of all, you are contributing to a better environment. After all, the production of meat and dairy is a major burden on the environment. Think of greenhouse gas emissions and the consumption of water and land. By not eating meat and dairy for a week, your carbon footprint is significantly reduced.

In addition, it’s also good for your own health to eat less meat and dairy. In fact, too much meat and dairy can lead to obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. By choosing plant-based alternatives, you get more fiber, vitamins and minerals. This is not only healthier, but also very tasty!

Tips for a week without meat and dairy

For some people, it can be quite difficult to eat no meat and dairy for a week. Therefore, we would like to give you some tips to make this week a success:

  • Start on time: Think about what you can eat without meat and dairy in advance. That way you avoid surprises.
  • Try new recipes: There are countless plant-based recipes on the Internet. Check out our blog full of great recipe sources. Try something new and discover that vegan food can be very tasty!
  • Plan your meals ahead: Make a weekly menu in which you plan what you will eat each day. This way you avoid having to think of something quick at the last minute.
  • Buy in bulk: Plant-based alternatives are often cheaper if you buy them in bulk. That way you can save a lot on groceries.
  • Use herbs and spices: With herbs and spices you can add flavor to your dishes. This way you don’t have to miss out on meat and dairy!

We invite you to participate in the Week Without Meat and Dairy 2023. Not only is it good for the environment and your health, but it’s also very tasty! And who knows, you might even discover new favorite dishes.
