Cut down your carbon footprint with every forkful

Switching to a plant-based diet is the most impactful way to reduce your environmental footprint. It turns out eating more plants is an awesome + delicious way to fight climate change and restore our beautiful planet, and a box delivered to your doorstep makes it easy and exciting for all. If the world converted to a plant-rich diet, reducing the consumption of meat, milk, cheese, eggs as well as restricting the calorie intake to 2,500 calories per day, for example, we could save up to 18 billion tons in future carbon emissions. Even small reductions in meat and dairy consumption can reduce your “foodprint” by 25%, and a total vegan diet reduces your carbon footprint by about 55%. 

You can still eat your favourites

Don’t panic! Whether you’re in the mood for a curry, lasagne, bolognese, shepherd’s pie, or even a mac & cheese, there’s a hack for every recipe. It’s amazing how much texture and flavour you can get from plants.

Turn yourself into a strong, plant-powered athlete

From gorillas to elephants, the world’s biggest, strongest creatures get all they need from leaves and grass to survive and flourish in all their powerful splendour.  Plant-powered champions like Serena Williams, Lewis Hamilton and Novak Djokovic all prove that there’s plenty of plant-based protein and nutrient rich foods available to us - beyond the need to eat animals.

Put your feet up and take the evening off

Busy people need delicious, imaginative and incredibly easy food to help them win each day, whilst not costing the earth - what we consume has a huge impact on the health of our planet. So forget about cooking for an evening, and enjoy being a foodie without the hassle. Plus, you get your evening back to watch #GBBO or go to sleep an hour earlier! 

Help reduce food waste 

A great way to minimise food waste is by using your freezer. While most of us are clued up on batch cooking or freezing leftovers, many of us don’t realise that almost any food can be frozen, so long as it’s frozen before its use by date. So when you’re rotating your cupboards, keep an eye out for anything getting close to going off. By freezing food, you’re pressing the “pause” button; it will not lose any nutrients or deteriorate in any way, it’s also a great way to preserve local, seasonal produce to give you a hit of summer berries in your winter porridge without hiking up your carbon footprint. (PS freezing is the best and most natural preservative on our planet!)

There’s no nasties

An allplants meal is totally plant-based - made from real, whole food ingredients, which naturally deliver a wide range of the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Full nutritional information is available for every dish, so you know exactly what you’re eating.

Be inspired

Eating the same dishes week-in-week-out can get boring. But it doesn’t need to be that way! If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even try recreating the meals at home with recipes available for every dish.

Allplants is on a mission to be earth’s favourite source of healthy convenience, making life on plants wonderful.
