Mario Batali Goes Meatless on Mondays?!

Celebrity chef Mario Batali is known for loving meat (yes, that's sausage hanging around his neck), so it's definitely a surprise to read today that Mario has joined the Meatless Monday campaign. What does Mario have to say about eating meat? How's Mario going to do it? Mario says:

The fact is, most people in the U.S. eat way more meat than is good for them or the planet... Asking everyone to go vegetarian or vegan isn't a realistic or attainable goal. But we can focus on a more plant-based diet, and support the farmers who raise their animals humanely and sustainably. That's why I'm such a big believer in the Meatless Monday movement.

So how's Mario going to do it? The Meatless Monday website says:
Every Monday one of his 14 restaurants will serve at least two vegetarian options, whether entrees or pastas or pizzas. In addition, many of the restaurants will designate these dishes as Meatless Monday options, using Mario's new MM logo (below).
