Plant-Based Food

Following a plant-based diet is the best thing you can do for your health, the environment, and of course for the animals being killed for food. If you haven’t seen the documentaries Forks Over Knives and What The Health they are both on Netflix and focus on plant-based eating. Here are a selection of articles I have written about plant-based food. It’s never too late to eat healthy!

Bon Appetite!

  • 7 Meals To Celebrate Meatless Mondays – 2017 – “Raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than cars and planes combined. Which means even small steps toward vegetarianism can preserve water and other resources, and also reduce the effects of climate change, deforestation, and pollution.
