Happy Mondays 

Did you know that one of the simplest changes you can make to help reduce climate change is switching to a more plant-based diet? If you went meat free every Monday for a year, you’d save the equivalent of 434 car miles of greenhouse gases. That’s why we’re supporting Meat Free Monday to provide our customers looking to make this change with recipes, tips and advice from our nutritionists. “It’s great that M&S is supporting Meat Free Monday and inspiring people to eat less meat and dairy,” says Suzanne Barnard, senior campaign manager at Meat Free Monday. “Having at least one plant-based day a week is a simple way to help protect the planet.”

What’s more, we’ll be helping you eat more sustainably with our Sparking Change challenge. Click below to find out more and keep scrolling for recipe ideas and new-in vegan dishes from our Plant Kitchen range.

Plant-powered favourites in the freezer

Want to keep your Meat Free Mondays quick and easy?

They’re all available in our freezer aisle now. 

Simple swaps 

Switching meat for pulses, beans, vegetables or meat alternatives is an easy way to make your favourite family meals vegetarian. Try swapping the chicken in your stir fry for our Plant Kitchen no chicken pieces, or instead of pork meatballs in a pasta dish, add in some extra veggies or our new Plant Kitchen veggie balls.
