It's good for your health.
Numerous studies with hundreds of thousands of participants have shown that eating a plant based diet leads to a longer life, lower diabetes risk, and decreases the chances of heart disease and cancer.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Most plant foods are only 10 to 50 calories per cup and contain a high amount of nutrients. If you eat these foods instead of fast, fatty, processed, and sweet foods, you will cut calories while significantly increasing your nutrient intake. This is the key to maintaining a healthy body weight. Eat low calorie nutrient dense foods and you will feel and look great!
It's good for the environment.
It takes about 15 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of beef and about 5 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of chicken. We grow a lot of grain to feed animals, but we would use far less water and fossil fuels if we ate the grain ourselves. A recent study found that the amount of beef the average American eats in a year creates as much greenhouse gas as driving a car over 1,800 miles! Nature provides human beings with everything we need to flourish.
