The over-eating of meat is a major contributor to the decline in health of the planet's population.

So why not change things up a bit?

Flexitarian is the new buzzword for those who have decided to give up a bit of meat, use meat substitutes, and generally try for a bit of moderation in their diet.

If you have been paying attention, you will notice that the climate is changing.  Plants and trees that used to thrive are dying off.  Pollinators are disappearing.  The seasons seem to arrive early - or late.  It is too wet, then too dry.
