Meatless Mondays in Los Angeles: L.A. city council asks residents to skip out on meat once a week

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Healthier eating advocates have persuaded Los Angeles leaders to endorse meatless Mondays.

The City Council that had earlier declared war on trans-fats and fast-food restaurants voted 14-0 on Friday to adopt a resolution urging residents to pledge they won't eat meat the first day of the week.

The LA Daily News says it doesn't make Monday meat consumption illegal and police won't be checking what you brought to work for lunch.
