I love these meals! I have a busy schedule and these meals not only give me the nutrition I need as a plant based athlete, but also free up a lot of time in meal prep. I am an ultra distance cyclist and I have a huge race in June 2020 called the Race Across the West. It is a 930 mile race with a 3-1/2 day time limit. It starts in Oceanside CA, through Arizona, Utah and finishing in Durango, CO. It is one of the toughest ultra races in the world.

I am using the race as a fundraiser for Feeding America and to use it to bring awareness of proper nutrition through whole food plant based diet. I am a two-time cancer survivor and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis about 7 years ago. At the time of my RA diagnosis, I ate a lot of fast food, and processed food.

It was taking a lot of medications to control inflammation and other chronic medical conditions. I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet 6 years ago and my whole life has changed! I am completely off all medications and now doing ultra distance cycling races of 400 plus miles.

One of the things I love so much about LeafSide meals is that I can take them with me on the road and use them to fuel me before, during and after the races when I am not at home. I am insured that I will have good 100 percent plant-based meals when I travel. I love your meals!!!

In one week of eating LeafSide meals, I lost 9 pounds, was pain-free, had more energy and mental clarity.

In fact, it was so amazing that I’ve decided that I’m going to make their meals a cornerstone of my healthy, new, plant-based diet lifestyle.

I drive over the road and so I don’t have the ability to really cook and certainly there are not a lot of healthy options for places to stop out on the road. With these meals, all I have to do is heat the water up in my little 12 Volt portable kettle and pour the hot water into the bowl with the meal. Presto! I have a healthy, plant-based, organic meal!

Love, love, love LeafSide!!! 💖

My hubby and I have been plant based for almost 10 years. We’re both in our mid 50’s. When we started, there weren’t a lot of vegan “fast food” options or “junk food”. Gradually, almost without thinking, we’ve replaced a lot of our food with very crummy food - vegan, yes. Whole food? Nope. So we’ve gained some weight, and, more importantly, our cholesterol has gone up and our blood has changed for the worse. Then, miraculously, our doctor recommends LeafSide. Btw: we live and travel full time on a boat so getting wfpb has been an issue anyway!

After just two weeks of both of us eating LeafSide, we feel like a million bucks! We’ve lost weight and our energy is higher. The LeafSide meals are so nutritionally dense that we feel full quicker and stay full longer.
LeafSide has been, literally, a life saver for both of us. We feel so grateful to have this option! Thanks, LeafSide, for providing such an incredible service to plant based eaters!

LeafSide is great. It's actually helped me satisfy cravings when I'm in that grab and go mode. Are you looking for something quick and easy to prepare at home? Do you travel? Or hike? Check box me off on all of those things.

I went to a buying show in Atlanta and packed a bunch of the sweet and savory bowls in my suitcase, as well as my always-with-me portable silicone bowl with lid, and just had to add water. This time, I stayed away from impulse eats, which are all too readily available, far more than I have in the past. I've decided this is the perfect meal solution to bring hiking with me and on overnighters. Just add water and voila! Good stuff. Thank you!

LeafSide meals are the perfect reset for me. I can't deny, that I feel healthier, have more energy, and sleep better. Overall I feel great.

It's much easier to resist binging when food is in front of me. I willingly reach for nuts or veggies with hummus in lieu of the snacks and sweets sitting in the pantry from my previous way of eating.
