Switching to a plant-based diet is great for your health and great for the environment, delicious and incredibly convenient.

It is a pretty big misconception that those with a plant-based diet eat rabbit food. In fact, it has never been easier to swap meat for an alternative. Even fast-food chains are starting to cater to plant-based diets. Ever since Burger King came out with the Impossible Whopper, other fast-food chains have followed suit. Even KFC is serving fried chicken alternatives.Plant-based diets are better for your health. Cutting down on meat products can help diminish chances of heart disease as well as lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Another misconception about plant-based diets is that they lack protein. However, eating foods like beans, nuts and legumes can provide enough protein for a healthy lifestyle. Having a plant-based diet, whether it be veganism, vegetarianism, pescetarianism, or even just meatless Mondays can help the environment as well because the meat industry is one of the leading causes of climate change.

Now more than ever is this an important contribution with global warming becoming more of a threat. With more and more people choosing to abandon meat each year, the choice becomes easier to make. While this diet used to be taboo and even challenging to commit to twenty years ago, this is not the case now. Just go to the local Walmart or Kroger and you will see plenty of meat and dairy alternatives on the shelves. Even in smaller rural towns it is possible to become plant based. Just making small changes to your diet can help the Earth.

The future is plant based.
