Dude you're talking about food and don't give a silnge recipe, c'mon.But seriously, my wife and I have started a similar, although less drastic plan, going meatless one dinner per week. I'd appreciate any good meal ideas you have. We like buttered spaghetti just a little spaghetti or angel hair mixed with butter, garlic powder or salt and parmesan cheese, usually mixed with peas or broccoli.

Yak Milk in Your Cracker?
 
Nowadays whole milk is required to have a set 3.25 percent milkfat. Well, cows do not give milk at a set 3.25 percent milkfat... Learn how we get our milk so standardized. Also of interest are MPCs. Milk Protein Concentrate is de-fatted, ultra-pasteurizated, ultrahomogenized, ultrafiltrated (UF), unregulated, powdered skimmed milk. Many manufacturers are using MPCs in their dairy products instead of real milk. Why? Because MPCs are a cheap and easy way to add a filling, stable protein into a product. Although MPCs do add protein, it is a very processed form. Are MPC's hurtful to the local food movement? Yes, as this dried, spoil resistant product takes less to transport than the fresh liquid milk, companies are choosing this processed powder over fresh milk.
Food Choices Affect the Climate
 
Eating 'less' meat and dairy is the best way to reduce emissions. But know that, less dense cheeses produce fewer greenhouse gases since they take less milk to produce. Cottage cheese, ricotta, cream cheese, part-skim or fresh mozzarella, gouda, feta, muenster and non-fat yogurt are all more earth-friendly choices, especially if organic.
