Why go Plant Based?

There are many reasons to include more plant based food. Your motivation will be personal to you, but here are some thoughts you may consider. 
 
Optimise your Health
 

Including more plant based foods in your everyday eating can really optimise your health. Plant foods help to support a naturally balanced and healthy body and mind, and many of our clients who have switched to this way of eating report improvements in energy, digestion, weight management, sleep and mood. Research also shows that the risk of many chronic diseases may be improved with a plant based diet. Check out the science in 'The Greenhouse'

Environmental & Ethical Reasons
 
Whatever stance you take, the reality is that by eating a more plant based diet you are contributing less to animal cruelty, exploitation and environmental issues.
 
If you are or want to transition to a plant-based diet for ethical reasons, or are just interested in the facts about meat and dairy production, there are many resources for you. You can find the links by clicking on the button below. Please note that some of the footage can be upsetting to watch.
Being fully aware of how meat got onto your plate may be important to some people when going more plant based. But if this is not for you then feel free to skip over these links, although you may feel it appropriate to come back to them another day.
