Success with Meatless Monday


Down to Earth experienced success with the first two Meatless Mondays. Sales for the items on special for Meatless Monday were up significantly. Which means folks are responding to our campaign! That's great news. Any movement toward people going meatless has a large positive benefit on the Earth, your health and the innocent animals.

We are excited to be part of this global movement. We got listed on the Meatless Monday website as "Movers and Shakers going Meatless".

Remember also that we’re offering up to a whopping 40% off the regular price of selected ALL VEGETARIAN Preferred Brand items on Mondays to help you go meatless at least one day a week!

This week we focus on a meatless breakfast with a delicious -

Apricot Pistachio Baked Yogurt

(Can also be used as an elegant dessert – bake in individual ramekins.)

Greek yogurt is strained to ensure the creamiest consistency then baked solid. Pistachios and apricots are sautéed sweet in honey and drizzled over this luxurious yogurt breakfast. This recipe comes to us via from Trudy of

Serves 6

  • 2½ cups Greek yogurt
  • 1½ cups of sweetened condensed nonfat milk
  • ½ cup of dried apricots, diced
  • ¼ cup of pistachio nuts, shelled and roughly diced
  • 1-1½ tablespoons honey

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Pour the Greek yogurt in a sieve and let sit, covered, over a bowl for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Discard the excess liquid that drips into the bowl.

In a separate large bowl combine the thickened yogurt and the condensed milk. Stir until smooth.

Pour yogurt milk mixture into a medium sized baking dish or individual ramekins. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the yogurt is set. Baking time will depend on the size of the dish used.

While the yogurt is baking, combine the honey and a teaspoon or two of water over low heat. Once the honey has melted add the apricots and pistachios.

Cook honey apricot mixture over a low heat for 2-3 minutes, or until the apricots begin to turn golden and become fragrant.

Drizzle the honeyed pistachios and apricots over the baked yogurt. Enjoy warm or chilled in the fridge.
