You guys may have guessed it by now, but here at Food Heaven we are full promoters of the plant-based lifestyle. For anyone who doesn’t know, plant-based eating puts the most emphasis on eating plants like fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, and whole grains. Not only is plant-based eating delicious, but it is good for your health and for your environment. Plant-based eating can help protect against chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity while making you feel better and even living longer. Not to mention, going meatless can save you a pretty little dolla or two. This is why we have teamed up with plant-based dietitian, Sharon Davis, to advocate for Meatless Mondays and the power of plant-based eating.
Meatless Monday is simple. Skip meat for one day a week. This movement aims to create healthier people and a cleaner planet by going meat free for one day. 24 other countries have already joined the movement to go meatless as well as a number of U.S. cities like Aspen, Raleigh, and L.A. So what does this mean? Joining the Meatless Monday movement in your community can make a huge impact for yourself and your entire community. Take a look at the Meatless Monday toolkit here to learn more about how to make changes in your local community.
