Paul Mccartney launches veggie cookbook
London: Sir Paul Mccartney has joined forces with his two daughters to pen a new vegetarian cookbook.
The Beatles legend, designer Stella and photographer Mary have put their favourite family recipes on paper as part of a Meatless Monday Movement initiative.
The campaign encourages meat lovers to cut animals out of their diet once a week.
The Meat Free Monday Cookbook, which contains 52 menu ideas ranging from stews to salads, also features contributions from fellow health-conscious and environmentally-friendly celebrities, including singer Pink, actors Kevin Spacey and Woody Harrelson and British fashion icon Vivienne Westwood.
“While many solutions can be quite difficult to put into practice, the idea of one meat-free day per week is something that many people find do-able and something that can be achieved relatively easily,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
And Meatless Monday co-founder Sid Lerner has praised the famous family’s work, adding, “We applaud the MCCartney family’s unwavering efforts to promote a healthier, more sustainable diet. This beauty of a cookbook is truly a delicious way to help spread the global Meatless Monday movement!”
