Good for you and the planet!

Diets that are rich in whole, plant-based foods are naturally high in fiber, protein and provide a full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals. A plant-based diet can contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce land occupation while minimizing soil, air and water pollution. According to greenpeace.org, livestock farms can generate the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as cars and trucks. Today, traditional livestock farming occupies more land than any other food group, decreasing the number of natural forests and available land.1

Three Easy Plant-based Swaps

Lentils

“Make a slow transition to plant-based meals by reducing the amount of ground beef or turkey in your favorite recipes by replacing them with cooked lentils. Lentils taste great as your main protein source in tacos, chili, stuffed peppers and more.”

Tofu

“Even as a dietitian, I didn’t eat much tofu or tempeh when I was younger, simply because I didn’t know how to cook them! Now, I see tofu as the most versatile meat alternative. Be sure to start with the “extra-firm” tofu, as its texture is closest to meat and don’t be afraid to get creative with spices!”

Protein-rich Milk Alternatives

“Soy milk is an excellent option when replacing traditional milk, but I recommend options that are fortified with protein to help you keep full throughout the day. If you have cereal for breakfast or tend to have a glass of milk with fruit as a post-workout snack, try a protein-rich flax or oat milk.”

What Does Plant-based Mean to You?

“To me, plant-based invites everyone to add more whole foods and plant protein to their plates. A plant-based eating pattern may or may not include animal products, but the frequency of animal product consumption is much smaller than the conventional American diet. By aiming for a plant-based eating pattern, and including more whole-plant foods, everyone can benefit from the increased vitamin, mineral, antioxidant and fiber intake. Plant-based eating is a decision I made for my health, but also an ethical decision for animal welfare and environmental impact."
