Meat Free May photographers show us how it's done
A massive thank you to everyone who shared their yummy food pictures with us during Meat Free May.
Judging the winners did involve having to eat lunch at 11am because everything looked so delicious. Which was slightly inconvenient, but worth it.
All this foodie madness is mouth-watering fun, and one pic at a time you are fighting a broken food system. Producing meat uses 75% of all the agricultural land in the world and creates 14.5% of global greenhouse gases - contributing to climate change.
By cutting down how much meat we eat, and eating better meat, we are making a change.
If you are wondering what to do post Meat Free May, check out our Let's Eat Better pledge. It’s fun, easy and might be right up your street:
Now for our amazing #meatfreemay photo of our 3 winners *drumroll*:
Winner no. 1: Josh M (@JoshMalc on Twitter) who won with his mouthwatering toasted pine kernel delight of a recipe:
Winner no. 2: Celia Briseid @CBriseid who gives us a seasonal, smooth and crunchy mix-a delightful green snack:
Starting the week with a healthy lunch. Mexican-ish wild rice salad with tomatoes, corn, cilantro, avocado, and a tomato/lime/cumin/oregano dressing.

Now for some special mentions.
I was also moved, almost to tears (I know) by willtippett who has just moved in with his girlfriend. He was making wonderful veggie breakfasts and meals for friends and sharing them with us through the power of Instagram:

I also enjoyed fat.girl.slim’s contributions, she says she is ‘Just a girl trying whole heartedly to get fit, healthy and strong. Hoping to gain inspiration from others and maybe give a little out’. What a legend:

Also big up the commitment of Food diary1506, offering us a photo every day, she is ‘Embracing all plant based whole foods & trying to avoid overly processed food’. And it all looks amazingly delicious:

Anyone doing meat free May one month challenge? Organised by the charity Friends of the Earth with the aim of encouraging people to move on to lower and better meat diets permanently. Great chance to try some meat free recipes! Not to late to get started. Oh and this was my dinner tonight... Tofu with wild rice and a load of yummy veg.. With slightly burnt kale chips on the side! Oops. #meatfreemay #vegetarian #meatfree #dietitianeats
