Plant Based Eating 101


Heart disease is the leading cause of death responsible for 1 in every 4 deaths in the U.S.

Over 1 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.

Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths.

One of every 3 Americans has high blood pressure.

While these facts are frightening, all of these conditions are preventable! Lifestyle factors, especially diet, has been linked to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.

Our health is closely tied to the foods we consume. Dieting is tough, and often difficult to maintain over the long run. So what’s the solution?

Plant based eating!

A plant based diet isn’t about giving up foods you love. It’s a tool for increasing the intake of food you’re not getting enough of while minimizing the foods that are less healthy.

The average American diet comes up short when it comes to fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Plant based eating ensures you’re getting the proper nutrition your body needs.

Not Just For Human Health

Current animal agricultural practices are contributing to greenhouse gas emissions at alarming rates, a staggering 51 percent or more! Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of our most valuable resources: land (forests, agriculture, etc.), food, energy, and water.

A few simple dietary changes can improve your quality of life, reduce destruction of the environment, and preserve natural resources for futures to come.

Other environmental benefits include:
-lowering your carbon footprint
-conserving water
-preserving ecosystems
-cleaner air

The future truly is in our hands, and creating more sustainable practices is key to ensuring generations to come can enjoy the same freedoms and lifestyles we’ve come to enjoy.
