    Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian at least one day per week. Under a resolution unanimously approved by the city council this week, all future Mondays in the City of Angels have been declared "Meatless Mondays."

    'Meatless Mondays': LA urges residents to turn vegetarian one day a week - U.S. News

    It's just wrong in so many ways, the most obvious of which is that city officials should in no way be promoting a particular way of life, especially one that has not proven to be healthy in the first place.

    And I guarantee they actually spent tax dollars doing this. Stupid.

    It's been mentioned before, that one of the criticisms of Primal/Paleo is that it eliminates an entire "food group." But hardly anyone blinks an eye when praising people like Clinton for eliminating an entire "food group" by going vegan.

    I heard Oakland public schools are also having meatless Mondays. The funny thing is the piece I heard on the radio was about teaching kids about how far the food they are eating has traveled (they followed asparagus from Chile) so having meatless Mondays doesn't make a lot of sense because any vegetarian options for protein would be coming from a long distance as almost all soy is grown and processed in the Midwest. My guess is that they will be eating a lot of cheese pizza and justifying it because it's Meatless!
