It’s Plant Power Day on 7 March 2021 and here’s everything you need to know about it.
Plant Power Day is the perfect solution for those trying to include more foliage in their diet while still keeping their carnivore habits.
Plant-based means food that comes from plants and doesn’t contain animal ingredients such as meat, milk, eggs, or honey.
The best way to celebrate Plant Power Day is to have an entire set of meals during the day that is completely based on plants.
Plant-based foods tend to be:
Packed with a wide range of vitamins and minerals
GOOD FOR OUR PLANET
GO BIG ON PLANTS on March 7th and you can.
Save 1,500 litres of water (two whole weeks of showers)
Reduce your carbon footprint by 2kg (the energy needed to make 1,064 cups of tea)
