It's the new year, and if you haven't jumped on the bandwagon with some sort of juice cleanse or crash diet, good. Because let's get real, you'll fall off. The best way to approach a lifestyle change is to be rational. One such decision is adapting a very do-able tradition: Meatless Mondays. Just stop eating animal protein for one day per week. It's really not that tough -- unless you're eating bad tofu that is.

You certainly own't be doing that over at STREET next Monday, because Susan Feniger and her team will be pairing up with adorable vegan sister chefs Jenny Engel and Heather Goldberg from Spork Foods for a dinner celebrating meat-free living.

Dishes will include beer-battered avocado tacos, a baby beet and arugula frisee salad, tofu and hearts of palm "crabcakes," and mini-spiced sugar donuts. It runs $55, with an an optional $15 drink pairing. And both sets will be on hand to sign copies of their cookbooks, which are chock full of ideas for you to bring home so that you can create your own Meatless Monday feasts.

Besides, L.A. is already a big fan of Meatless Monday, so much so that we've are the nation's largest city to endorse the idea. Famed food columnist Mark Bittman loved the idea so much that he went vegan before 6 p.m. So what are you waiting for? It's totally attainable. And when these gals are cooking, it's also delicious.
