High meat consumption has been associated with poor health and meat production has substantially contributed to climate change, environmental degradation and social injustices. The Plant(e)t Cuisine campaign not only encourages a plant-centred diet but also provides guidance on adopting and thriving on a well-balanced plant-based diet.
A healthy plant-based diet is associated with a myriad of health benefits. Diet can be a powerful tool for not only treating chronic illness but for reducing our impact on the planet.
EATING FOR YOUR HEALTH, EATING FOR THE PLANET
Here you'll find a collection of healthy plant-based recipes that have been specifically formulated to nourish your health whilst also reducing your environmental footprint and still making your tastebuds happy. Our goal is to provide delicious, easy recipes that will help you consume more plants - but, importantly, won't have you spending hours in the kitchen. These recipes are created by our very own TLI founders unless otherwise stated, meaning they are dietitian and plant-powered athlete approved!
HOW IT WORKS
The benefits of plant-based diets centred around whole or minimally processed foods are rock solid. This way of eating is more environmentally sustainable than a standard western diet because it uses much fewer natural resources, resulting in less environmental damage and a smaller carbon footprint. Due to a higher intake of beneficial phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and gut-loving fibre, plant-based eaters are also at reduced risk of many chronic health conditions like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and certain cancers.
Sustainable Development Goals
