According to Julie Watkins, “March is National Nutrition Month and what better way to celebrate than by participating in a community-supported initiative developed to help you feel and look better.” No Meat March is a Jacksonville-based campaign presented by The Girls Gone Green. It invites those curious about exploring a plant-based diet to sign a pledge and become part of a growing population seeking healthier alternatives to animal protein.
Watkins explains, “We just want you to use the 31 days of going meat-free as a way to explore your body and health. Try giving your body a break from foods high in fat and cholesterol to see if you like the way it makes you feel. We are here to offer support and encouragement.”
During the month, there will be a number of events and gatherings for participants to get together and enjoy community-related activities. Participants will receive daily emails sharing nutritional information and recipes to support their commitment to NMM. Plenty of resources are available to foster community, allowing participants to communicate, ask questions and get feedback.
