The Plant Way mission is to help you improve your health and quality of life by making use of the amazing benefits of plant-based foods.
In addition, by adopting a plant-based lifestyle, you can lessen your impact on the environment and the animals that inhabit our planet (see our impact calculator).
We pull back the curtain on the effects of animal agriculture and the subsequent consumption of animal products on human health, animal welfare and the health of the planet.
In turn, we arm you with the knowledge of the power of plants to make better choices.
From recipes to nutritional information and lifestyle tips, we show you The Plant Way…
If you stumbled upon this website through a Google search or a referral, it was most likely for one of three reasons:
- You’re already plant-based (vegan) and searching for information.
- You're trying to go plant-based (vegan) and need some motivation.
- You’re curious about changing your lifestyle habits because you've become more conscious about animal welfare and the effects of animal agriculture on the planet, and the health risks posed by the consumption of meat, dairy and process foods.
I was once a 3, then a 2 and eventually a 1, so I know where you’re at and the challenges you’re facing.
As a 3, you’re faced with a life-changing decision. You’re thinking about changing the way you’ve been eating your whole life to date. You’re a little worried about making the switch. You're looking for clarification on important nutritional issues and reliable advice to help you get started.
As a 2, you’re often caught between a rock and a hard place. You really want to maintain a plant-based diet for the sake of the animals and the planet, and your health too, but miss certain foods and have trouble maintaining when you go out to eat and travel.
You sometimes worry that you’re not getting all the right nutrition too, and at times you struggle with motivation because the majority of your friends and family eat meat and don’t encourage your lifestyle.
As a 1, you know that it isn’t that much different from being a 2. You still face the critics but remain committed to The Plant Way. You know how awesome you feel when you eat a whole foods plant-based diet, and how wonderful it is to not have to participate in unnecessary cruelty and environmental destruction.
