One plant-based meal a day keeps the doctor away
Eating more plant-based food decreases the risk of major diseases such as cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes or obesity.
It also helps reduce inflammation in the body, lessening symptoms like joint pain and stiffness of autoimmune diseases.
If balanced, your diet will be richer in several important nutrients such as antioxidants, fibre, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A, C and E.
Eating plant-based cuts your carbon and water footprint in half!
One person eating plant-based just one day per week saves approximately 18 kg of grain, 4164 litres of water (4 months' worth of shower), and 3 m2 of forest.
Animal agriculture contributes 14.5% of greenhouse gases - more than all transportation combined - making it the 2nd leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions.
Animal agriculture is also the #1 contributor to extinction and biodiversity loss due to the land needed for grazing and growing feed for livestock.
Be kind, make compassionate food choices
The bad news is… It is estimated that each year 80 billion land animals are slaughtered for food.
The good news is that each day, a person who follows a vegan diet saves the life of 1 animal!
A fact to remember: cows have an excellent memory, can build friendships and suffer when they are separated from their newborns.
