Transform Your Health and the Planet ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŽ

๐ŸŒŽ Let’s Veg Out! ๐ŸŒฑ

To celebrate Earth Day, we’re pausing and reflecting on humanity, and our relationship to this blue-green jewel ๐ŸŒŽ that’s home for us all, spinning in the vastness of space.

We humans are now so impactful on the planet, affecting so many ecosystems everywhere, that scientists have proposed a new geological age for our times: The Anthropocene.

We’re the first species that’s become a planet-scale influence and is aware of that reality. That’s what distinguishes us.” โ€” Andrew Revkin

But just as we’ve become widely aware of our impact, so too do we realize the power of our daily choices.

Your Plate ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ, Your Planet ๐Ÿƒ

Did you know that the single biggest daily eco-impact we make, is our choice of foods?

It’s a well-predicted, well-studied truth. The largest studies include:

A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use. It is far bigger than cutting down on your flights or buying an electric car (as these only cut greenhouse gas emissions).” โ€” Joseph Poore, lead author of the Oxford U study above

Put in a nerdy science way, as physics predicts, eating plants directly is far lighter on the Earth, than feeding plants to livestock โ€” which is always and everywhere, very inefficient on land, water, soil, air quality, and other natural treasures.

So, How big of a difference does it make?

Compared to plant-based eating, diets that include meat ๐Ÿท require, at minimum:

3x More Water

13x More Fertilizer

2x More Energy

โ˜ฃ๏ธ โ˜ฃ๏ธ โ˜ฃ๏ธ โ˜ฃ๏ธ
40% More Pesticides

In particular, a plant-based diet rich in whole foods can reduce agricultural greenhouse-gas emissions by up to 80%, while also improving your overall health and preventing chronic diseases. โœ… (Read More: Envisioning a Healthier Planet: The Transformative Impact of a Global Vegan Diet ๐ŸŒ)

In other words, eating more plants, and cutting animal products, empowers us to solve both the human health and climate crises simultaneously. ๐Ÿคฏ

Earth Is Good For Us Too

Nature plays a major role in our well-being, and it’s our responsibility to protect it. ๐ŸŒณ

Studies have shown that exposure to nature promotes health-enhancing behavior and people living in greener areas report fewer symptoms of illness and better perceived general and mental health. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

Indeed, just walking in a forest can measurably boost our immunity too!

“How do you like my LeafSide garden?! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ

These seeds self-sprouted from compost, so they are squash AND melon! ๐Ÿ‰” โ€” Lisa B.

“Iโ€™m very impressed with my first meal, tasty and filling. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Plus, I appreciate that the packaging is simple and lightweight. ๐Ÿ“ฆ
Iโ€™ve tried other meal services and all the packages and frozen blocks are hard to dispose of and not very environmentally friendly.
Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒฟ” โ€” Sue C.

“My first smoothie and savory bowl were just amazing. The ingredients are outstanding, I was just blown away by the blend of superfoods, (the B12!!) and the flavor. ๐Ÿคค

I am committed to and knowledgeable about food and good health practices but not always able to pull it together the way you have – I am relieved and enthusiastic to have these meals ready to go without refrigeration and time consuming preparation. โฐ

The times I feel like cooking I know I can make it great, but in between it feels so good to know I can stay on plan. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

I stopped other plans because the packaging made me crazy. The tiny box and planet healthy packets were such a relief! ๐ŸŒŽ

When I got the box I immediately called my daughter to come over and see, we split one of the smoothies, and later one of the bowls – added a few ingredients, and had a filling and complete meal for 2. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

She is a high level performance athlete, and planet warrior – and she was sold! ๐Ÿ’ช

I for one will stick with LeafSide because they are the answer to my food plan prayers ๐Ÿ™ – I have autoimmune disease and have researched every plan on the market ๐Ÿง – finding LeafSide allows me to maintain my health on my budget and with my busy lifestyle. ๐Ÿ’ƒ Unmatched greatness! ๐Ÿ˜” โ€” Connie M.
