Following a recent article regarding the counties split reaction to Meatless Mondays, Yumi Media offered their comments.

On November 28, 2012, Yumi Media offered their comments following a Ventura County Star article by Tom Kisken, regarding Ventura County’s split reaction to going meatless once a week.

According to the Ventura County Star article, people seem to have mixed feelings about going meatless on Mondays. According to a farmer from Santa Barbara, "You eat what you want," yet according to Ventura resident David Dreier, "I think it's a great idea.” The article mentions that, “It's not a mandate, not a law, rather a statement asking people to protect their health, animals and the environment by eating what the resolution calls a more varied, plant-based diet."

The article states that some people like Dr. Safraz Zaidi are worried about the Meatless Monday movement, expressing concern that people will not have a balanced enough diet without meat. The article mentions on the other side of the Meatless Monday argument, Mary Grayr, vegan restaurant owner states, "If it's going to be good for you once a week, it's going to be good for you all the time." According to the article high rates of child obesity and diabetes are some of the reasons why Los Angeles is pushing for Meatless Mondays.

Yumi Media supports Meatless Monday and encourages Ventura County to do so, as well as offers meat lovers a tasty alternative. “Meatless Monday is a healthy movement to follow, and meat eaters should suck it up one day a week,” says Yumi Media representative Takara Licausi. “For those who love meat, they should try a tasty Quorn meat alternative.”
