Fruits and vegetables help lower bad cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease,1 and aid in weight-loss.2,3
Plants are rich in antioxidants that trap cancer-causing free radicals.4 They reduce inflammation, and fight against diabetes. Bonus: fruits and vegetables help you live a longer, happier life. They reduce oxidative stress and can even improve your mood.5
The food we eat connects us to the ground below, the sky above, and everyone in-between. We believe that eating healthy encompasses more than just our physical health. That’s why everything we make is 100% plant-based. By eating way more plants and a lot less meat, you can help reduce environmental pollution caused by animal agriculture and live a more compassionate life (YAY!). Let’s make sure we leave the earth better than the way we found it.
