If there is one thing we humans are is a creatures of habit. From the first moment you eat your first solid food, you’ve been told that food only works one way. The way your family has taught you. But family isn’t only what influences our diets; friends, the schools we attend, jobs we have, even the television shows we watch can have an impact on what we perceive as a proper meal.
These habits are ingrained in our lives. I’ve been there and I’m sure you have too. But change isn’t impossible. All you need is a little help, a few tips, and to learn a few new tricks to move towards a new–plant-based–life.
TOP REASONS TO EAT A PLANT BASED DIET:
- YOUR HEALTH: According to WHO 39% of adults over the age of 18 are over weight, and 13% of those people are obese. Obesity is a preventable disease. Changing your diet to include even one “Meatless Day” will improve your health: from type 2 diabetes to helping you lose weight.
- THE PLANET: By shifting towards a plant-based diet, you are helping all of us. The United Nations has been urging people to give up meat and dairy since 2010, documenting. “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.”
- THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE (& everyone else, too): Let’s be honest, we could all use a little bit more kindness in our lives. To ourselves, to our fellow humans, and to all the occupants on this planet. Eating a plant-based diet boosts your energy [Don’t believe me, then ask David Carter.] There are more benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables than I care to list on this page, but I’m always happy to talk your ear off about it.
The unknown can feel impossible at times, but I’m here to help you learn how to cross the bridge from a standard diet to one filled with whole foods, veggies, fruits, whole grains (and delicious desserts as well.)
