A plant-based diet consists of vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds. This type of diet protects your health, the environment and animals.

Our current agricultural system and high intake of animal products are destroying the earth. Our oceans, rain forests and farmlands are being devastated by our drive to eat more and more animal proteins. A plant-based diet is a more sustainable and environmentally conscious way of eating.

Kristen Zaier, ​​Plant-Based RD

Animals suffer terribly in factory farms which is where most of our animal proteins come from. We do not need to eat animals to survive and thrive. If you are an animal lover than the most compassionate diet that you can follow is a plant-based one. As more people adopt a plant-based diet, less and less animals will need to suffer and die.

A plant-based diet is your best defense against heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases. Doctors like Dean Ornish, Neil Barnard, Caldwell Esselstyn and John McDougall are reversing diseases in their patients by prescribing a plant-based diet instead of pills, procedures and surgeries.
