Most trends come and go, but plant-based eating isn’t going anywhere. Not only has plant-based eating been linked in studies to lower risk of diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, but eating a diet rich in veggies and fruits provides more nutrients and antioxidants, which can help give us energy, lower inflammation, improve our immunity, and overall wellness. Plant-based eating is no doubt good for our bodies.
But it’s also earth-friendly (meat and dairy production is a significant contributor of greenhouse gases that fuel climate change) and kinder to our animal friends. Eating plant-based doesn’t necessarily mean you need to commit to being a hard-core vegan or vegetarian. Healthier for our bodies and our planet, it just means eating lots more veggies and cutting down on meat and processed foods. And when done right, it can make you feel better. But changing the way we eat can be complex and confusing at first. That’s why Splendid Spoon, a plant-based meal-delivery service, can be a great way to start or even keep you on track with plant-based eating.
