If you’ve been thinking about switching to a plant-based diet, enjoying a meatless meal once a week is a great way to start. Here are 3 reasons to try it tonight:

1. Going vegetarian or vegan is one way to eat in accordance with the yogic principle of ahimsa (nonharming), especially with regard to animals (read more in Why You Should Try a Vegetarian or Vegan Diet).

2. Vegan and vegetarian diets can be good for the Earth. Raising animals for slaughter contributes to land erosion and water pollution. And a 2006 United Nations report found that, globally, livestock and dairy farming produce more greenhouse gas emissions than transportation.

3. Looking for vegan snack ideas? LÄRABAR Original Fruit & Nut Bars, Jŏcalat, and ALT are made entirely from plant-based foods.
