Go Plant Based

When you consume foods that boost your energy and give your body the fuel it needs, you can expect to feel healthier, both physically and emotionally.

In many cases the foods that deliver are plant-based, and you can create delicious and healthy meals while adhering to a plant-based eating plan.

Make Easy Substitutes

Having a vegetarian meal once a day is a great start, or even try “meatless Mondays” at home.

Swap out ice cream and instead go for frozen blended bananas as an after-dinner treat. Try a nut- or grain-based milk in place of your normal dairy.

Make Gradual Changes

Drastically changing your eating habits can be challenging.

Small, sustainable changes are easier to manage and simpler to implement.

Even one change per day can lead to healthier eating, like swapping the meat in a normal sandwich for a plant-based protein, such as a salad made with chickpeas or lentils, for a quick and easy lunch.

Start Meal Planning

Meal planning can reduce the time you spend in the kitchen and cut the cost of your groceries while making plant-based eating easy.
