It’s common practice to stir clear of meat as a way to fast during Good Friday, And before that, the world will be celebrating Earth Day this Thursday as well.
This means you could be doing yourself, mother nature, and God a favor should you choose to give green diet a try. Getting healthy, saving the planet, and being a good Catholic - it's like hitting three birds with one stone. We think we might be able to pull this off.
For starters, we came up with six gulay recipes disguised as comfort food that you can chow on guilt-free on Good Friday. Enjoy!
