Plant-Based Power! How Plant-Based Food Can Save Both Your Plate & The Planet



Plant Power:

How plant-based foods are supporting the health of people and the planet

People are more interested in alternatives to meat and dairy than ever.  Plant-based foods not only taste great, but they can improve the health of your plate and the planet! 

1 in 10 millenials are vegan or vegetarian now. We could save 8 million lives (not to mention the countless lives of animals) by 2050 if we focused more on plant food and less on meat.

Research and science have demonstrated that a diet that emphasizes plant-based food can reduce cancer, prevent chronic disease, and help you to manage your weight.

Did you know?

“AICR’s expert report, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective, found that a predominantly plant-based diet – as in the New American Plate – may reduce the risk of cancer.

Not only do vegetables, fruits, whole grains and other plant-based foods provide an array of cancer-protective compounds, but a predominantly plant-based diet is a powerful tool in weight management. The fiber and water in plant foods gives a feeling of fullness without supplying a lot of calories.

The report concluded that maintaining a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do to reduce your risk of cancer.”*

We have so many wonderful options these days and amazing recipes to power up your plate with the power of plant-based foods.
