Monday: Tender Greens
Meatless Monday has been part of American culinary culture since it was introduced during World War I (along with "Wheatless Wednesday") in an effort to encourage voluntary rationing. Since 2003, it's been encouraged by the John Hopkins School of Public Health Center for a Livable Future, along with numerous other good health groups. You can become part of the movement at the various branches of <a href="http://www.zagat.com/search?text=tender+greens&where%5Bname%5D=Los+Angeles+&where%5Bid%5D=&where%5Blat%5D=34.0522&where%5Blon%5D=-118.242797&where%5Blocale%5D=Los+Angeles&where%5Bradius%5D=45" target="_blank">Tender Greens</a>, where they serve a Meatless Monday menu of heirloom tomato gazpacho, warm baby Swiss chard, white corn chowder with crispy okra, ricotta gnocchi, foraged mushrooms and peppers stuffed with Himalayan rice - and, of course, most of their salads.
