My Veggie Chef

Why should you choose a plant based diet?

Better for you:
A plant-based diet reduces your risk of heart disease by 32%, reduces your risk of high blood pressure by 55%, and can add an additional 3.6 years to your life!

Better for the planet:
Eating plant-based four days a week is the equivalent of taking your car off the road for three months. 320 miles are saved for each burger you choose not to eat. It takes 1,811 more gallons of water to produce a pound of beef than a pound of veggies.
