Kristie Middleton is always in motion. As the Senior Food Policy Director for the Humane Society of the United States, she’s a sought-after speaker on how to reform our global food system. Her work has been covered by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Politico and CNN, to name a few.

Even with her busy schedule, Kristie found time to write a new book, “MeatLess: Transform the Way You Eat and Live – One Meal at a Time.” It’s available starting tomorrow and it’s perfectly timed for National Nutrition Month in March.

In the book, Kristie details how you can begin eating less meat and dairy – without giving them up completely. If you think that sounds a lot like Meatless Monday, you’re right. Turns out Kristie is a big fan of Meatless Monday, as you’ll see in this interview. After all, the health benefits of choosing a more plant-based diet are inarguable. And it’s an added bonus that plant-based food is also much healthier for the planet.
