What should I eat for dinner on #WorldMeatFreeDay?

Twitter informs you that its #WorldMeatFreeDay – so err, what’s for grub tonight? Great Q, my planet-embracing amigo! Even if you’re the meatiest of meat heads, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re looking to make a simple change that can really make a difference, eating less meat and dairy can tick that box with a thick black marker. After all, what we eat accounts for about for a chunky third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Yikes.

But making more climate-friendly choices isn’t all quinoa and broccoli you know. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good chunk of broccoli as much as the next iron-hungry gal, but the below might tempt even the most carnivorous and gluttenous eaters among you.

Hope you’ve already had lunch; saliva glands at the ready!

There are no words.

Meatballs without the meat.

See-food, not seafood.

Aaaaand another one. Red onion, butternut squash, spinach, olive tapenade.

Fast food favourite that’s even kinda healthy here. But if you prefer it with ‘cheese’ on top…

…this might do ya.

You can still have burgers.

Oh, and hotdogs.

Cauliflower has never looked this good.

Turkey without the Bernard Matthews.

Waffles are totally dinner too.

Then you can throw some stuff on top.

And for dessert, this.
