💪 Physical Health
A diet based around plants can help prevent a variety of diseases and promote good health throughout our lives. For athletes, plant-based eating can boost performance and speed recovery.
💵 Saving Money
Contrary to popular belief, plant-based eating doesn't have to be expensive! Staples like beans and grains are some of the least expensive foods around, and frozen produce is cheaper and just as healthy as fresh! Resources like Plant-Based on a Budget make affordable plant-based eating easier than ever, and studies like this one show how significant the savings can be.
Eating more plant-based meals lowers demand for meat, dairy and eggs, which dramatically reduces animal suffering on factory farms around the world. As Lyn White puts it, "Since we can lead healthy, happy, fulfilling lives without harming those who share this world with us, why wouldn't we?"

A plant-based diet consists of exclusively plant foods, including fruit, vegetables, grains, and legumes, and avoids meat, dairy, and eggs. Plant-based foods are full of fiber, rich in vitamins and minerals, free of cholesterol, and low in calories and saturated fat. Eating a variety of these foods provides all the protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients your body needs.

The well-being wheel is a great way to think through the dimensions of well-being:
The role that you take in maintaining your body for strength, vitality and energy.
🧠 Emotional / Mental
Being aware and managing your feelings, being at peace with who you are, and having the tools you need to weather life's ups and downs.
Reflects the impact your environment (home, school, city, planet) has on you and the impact you have on the environment.
Your relationship with money and skills for managing resources, as well as your ability to make good consumer choices and seek out appropriate financial opportunities.
The work you choose to do and how it contributes to your community and fulfills you.
How you choose to define and connect with your community and the people around you.
Feeling stimulated and engaged with learning and staying open to new ideas and perspectives.
Your understanding of your place and purpose, how you make meaning of what happens to you, and what your mind goes to for comfort or relief.
🔭 In addition to plant-based eating, we plan to support content curation for other practices moving forward, including sleep, meditation, and yoga. Have ideas for how to do so without overcomplicating things? We'd love to hear from you, here!
